by Guzman, Gloria, M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 77; 10976886
Abstract (Summary)

This qualitative study examined the perspectives of American students, focusing on the factors and characteristics that frame an individual as a global citizen. The study focused on nine American students who were enrolled in a California State University. This population of students brought knowledge of their personal perspectives and experiences, pertaining to their own ideals of global citizenship, as well as to how they believed it was integrated in their educational experience. Key themes from the participants included: the importance of a period of self-realization, individual effects as a result of the current political climate, the importance of language, and the lack of priority given to global citizenship within the K-12 public education system.
