Global citizenship for all? The emergence of the GCE gap

Heela Goren, School of Education

Heela had recently submitted her thesis entitled “Global citizenship for all? Emergence of the GCE gap” as part of her M.A in education policy and administration at the Tel-Aviv University School of Education. The thesis explores the differences in the ways teachers of students from various socio-economic backgrounds perceive global citizenship education. Heela found that teachers of students from strong socio-economic backgrounds perceived global citizenship education to be imperative for their students, as opposed to lower SES students who were perceived by their teachers to be less capable of participating in the global society.
