More than four decades ago Sir Edmund Hillary (1964) expressed his beliefs that more affluent and technologically advanced countries have an obligation to help the struggling countries. He believed this was the route to attain peace and security. How true his words still ring! It is the right of all people to have access to education; it is the responsibility of all those who are able to assist those in need to do so. Globally engaged education is one way to make a permanent difference in the lives of others, and a positive contribution to the world as well.
It may even help to bring education to many who may not have access and even assist with improving cultural understanding and peace. I firmly believe that the excellence of the United States is limited if we do not broaden and deepen our educational parameters to encompass a worldwide education. Education is the key to economic growth, to our ability to collaborate in our rapidly changing world, and to improved international relations and harmony. Broadening our educational parameters does not mean we will lose our identity as Americans; indeed it may lead to further carving out our unique character.
