Professor Torres created and built the cabinetry and other woodwork in their Topanga home. The tools are at the service of the craftsman — not the craftsman — or the teacher — at the service of the tools.

Lorem About Global Citizenship Education and the Crises of Multiculturalism The notion of global citizenship education GCE has emerged in the international education discourse in the context of the United Nations Education First Initiative that cites developing global citizens as one of its goals.
In this book, the authors argue that GCE offers a new educational perspective for making sense of the existing dilemmas of multiculturalism and national citizenship deficits in diverse societies, taking into account equality, human rights and social justice.
The authors explore how teaching and research may be implemented relating to the notion of global citizenship and discuss the intersections between the framework of GCE and multiculturalism.
They address the three main topics which affect education in multicultural societies and in a globalized world, and which represent unsolved dilemmas: Through a comparative study of the two prevailing approaches — intercultural education within the European Union and multicultural education in the United States — the authors seek what can be learned from each model.
Global Citizenship Education and the Crises of Multiculturalism offers not only a unifying theoretical framework but also a set of policy recommendations aiming to link the two approaches. Table of contents 1.

With rising political and cultural violence, increased religious and ethnic cleansing and tribalism, and the pressures of governance by global capitalism, how can we contemplate, design, and implement a system of global citizenship based upon equity, universal participation and respect for all?
