MEDIA REVIEWS
Dr. Gunzelmann has written an important and timely text that describes not only why global education is necessary at this point in history, but the power it has to impel real change in the world. This inviting book should be considered by all educators interested in broadening the knowledge and understanding of their students in an increasingly diverse and connected world. -- Jerome L. Rekart, Ph.D., is an associate professor of education and psychology and is the director of the behavioral science laboratory at Rivier University
Dr. Betsy Gunzelmann' s newest book calls on all of us to participate in creating a paradigm shift on we view education. Educators and politicians are urged to participate in an effort to enhance our students " global wisdom. " Dr. Gunzelmann' s concept of global wisdom includes teaching students to "live and interact in an increasingly global world; " one where people from all nations work collaboratively to solve world problems in a just manner. -- Diane Connell, professor of education at Rivier College in Nashua, New Hampshire
How refreshing to see the word global education without a focus on racing to the top, with all its built in assumptions about winners and losers. Gunzelmann has carefully and thoroughly offered us another scenario for what global eduction must mean if we are to do right for all our children. Play with it? And thank you for writing this, Betsy. Education reform has become a rhetorical exercise in nationalistic competition, even as we know that the opposite must be true!! -- Deborah Meier, author of In Schools We Trust; founder of NYC's Central Park East public schools in East Harlem and Boston's Mission Hill school; current senior scholar at NYU's Steinhardt School of Education; board member of Coalition for Essential Schools
