Sometimes it seems the national curriculum is educating children for a world that is already passing away. Global Perspectives In Education is one of a series of three publications from the Development Education Association. It reports on why and how educational provision needs to acknowledge that our food, clothes, entertainment and environment are all affected by new forces operating inside and outside the UK. It points to ways in which concepts such as "interdependence", "social justice" and "diversity" can be clothed with meaning in literacy or music lessons as well as those devoted to citizenship.
