Instead of asking our students what they want to be when they grow up, we should ask them what problem they want to solve. We should ask them to think about what knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to solve that problem. We should ask them to think about how the problem they want to solve fits into the context of the world.

Why is Global Education Important? 

In an increasingly interconnected world, global education is more important than ever. Introducing our students to ways of global thinking ensures that our students are best prepared not only to eventually join a global workplace and economy, but also to take advantage of the many international opportunities here in Washington, DC. 

Global education isn't limited to learning another language or being able to locate countries on a map; global education helps students develop skills and competencies that can be transferred to any subject matter, such as effective communication and perspective-taking. Encouraging students to make connections on a global level opens doors in a way that little else can and students curious about the world will find that it is full of endless possibilities.
