I believe that those of us who are deeply involved with the global education/global awareness movement are being challenged to create an important part of our own and our children's future. I am sometimes (frankly) discouraged in this effort in the face of apparently well-funded and persistent "international education" and "climate change" detractors and deniers, whose motto might as well be "United We Stand--With Our Heads in the Sand."

All the strike have a 'money' element in them.
The government insists that there is no money to…Continue
