"Teaching and assessing student work that addresses issues of global significance around the world or in students’ own

backyards are essential to a world-class education system. The global marketplace is real, and today’s schools must prepare students to participate, interact, and thrive in it. The more our students know about recognizing the challenges and opportunities of an interconnected world, the better they will be able to work in it and improve it. Our students’ well-being, the vitality of our communities, and the welfare of our nation depend on it." EdSteps in collaboration with the Asia Society
