How to assist children to become world citizens.

Currently shipping to USA destinations only


In a world changing as rapidly as ours, a re-examination of education - in its wider sense - is indispensable if the world of tomorrow is to have overcome the urgent problems facing mankind today. The Bahá'í vision of a united, peaceful world implies profound changes both in society and in individual human beings. Inevitably, changes no less profound must take place in the aims and methods of education. Dr Rost, who teaches in the Faculty of Education at the University of Kenya, presents a brief historical outline of the Faith, and some basic concepts: what man is; how his spiritual and moral qualities affect his own life and that of his society; the influence of education, both in and out of school; the roles of the family, the teacher and the community; and the balance between spiritual and material considerations in education.
This book, published during the United Nations International Year of the Child, is an introduction to the theme of 'education for a united world'. It challenges us to raise our children as responsible citizens of a world civilization.
