Are Students Prepared for a Global Economy?
9/27/2012 12:00:00 AM
A recent study of 18-24 year old
American high school graduates,
commissioned by education
nonprofit World Savvy, with
support from the International
shows a desire among young people
to learn more about global topics, but a
seeming lack of instruction within American
schools to satisfy these needs. Key findings
• While the vast majority of respondents see
the importance of global literacy, 48 percent
actively disagree with the statement that their
6th-12th grade education provided instruction that helps them to understand the roots of
global issues that affect their lives today.
• 63 percent indicated that they did not discuss world events in their high school classes.
• Only a little over half (54 percent) think that their high school teachers incorporated a global
perspective into their curricula.
