Change is not easy. Recent studies have shown how hard it is to get people to consistently wash their hands—something that is well established to be good for you and an easy task to complete. If even getting people to adopt such a simple habit is so difficult, imagine what a challenge we are all facing in trying to transform and improve the U.S. education system. Such a transformation requires commitment to change at the state, district, school, and individual educator levels. Often, all these levels do not align in the degree of attention or commitment that they are able to give to high-quality, global education.
For this very reason, we strive to create multiple pathways through which people can engage with our work to promote global learning, as a state, district, school, and even as an individual educator.
Use this page to find the right pathway for you to engage with our work and to champion global learning. By working together and pulling all these levers for change, we can make sure all our students graduate ready for college and career in today’s globalized world.
