by DAVID HICKS
Educational Review ()

Abstract

With the Department for International Development (DfID) funding being made available to support a ‘global dimension’ in the school curriculum it seems an appropriate time to review the field of global education in the UK. This article therefore highlights some key principles and precedents in the emergence of this field in the UK and North America. It identifies the ‘core elements’ that need to be present before any initiative can claim to be ‘global education’ and concludes with a note on appropriate use of ‘global’ terminology.
