The world today is integral and global. Hence, connections between us must become integral and global as well. Such a change is feasible only by educating to globality. Every person in the world must realize that in the new world, we are all interconnected, and hence must be mutually considerate.
An educational-academic institution must be set up in the spirit of mutual understanding and collaboration as promoted by UNESCO, to qualify youths to serve as “Global Educators.” To…

The current state of youths reflects the reality of the 21st century. On the surface, youths today may appear superficial, indifferent, lost in a virtual realm of smartphones and tablets, but the truth of the matter is that they are far more developed than we are.

The primary goal of a 21st century school should be the preparation of the younger generation for life in the global world.

What is development?
Until recently, development was conceived narrowly as no more than an increase in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of a country.

Take the case of Nigeria; as at 1999, the…Continue
