COURSE: 51-743 Educational Leadership Responsibilities in a Global World (3)
Globalization of the economy, the necessary interaction of cultures, the era of accountability, shrinking resources, and the ready access to information and communication through technology make interdependence and collaboration necessary. School leaders are responsible to make sure the present generation of young people are prepared to transition to a global world as active citizens of the global community. The educational system must provide all students the type of teaching and learning opportunities and needed understandings, perspectives, and skills this global transition will demand.
