4. Global Awareness
In the classroom and around the globe, students are able to connect with people anywhere regardless of distance. The business world has gone global, with even small companies having the opportunity to collaborate and compete with others in different parts of the world. Because the world is getting smaller in so many ways, global awareness is one of the top skills you can have under your belt when you walk across the graduation stage after high school. When your teachers focus on global awareness, they are teaching diversity and tolerance, an understanding of other cultures, and each person’s responsibility as part of a global society.
