Can you trust this 100 people village thing?
This thing has been circulating for ages (in Internet time) now, and people seem to find the contrasts it highlights between the "haves" and "have-nots" of the world compelling.

The mother-tongue dilemma
http://www.unesco.org/education/education_today/ed_today6.pdf
The mother-tongue dilemma
Educators are increasingly convinced of the value of multilingual education, and studies show that children learn better in their mother tongue.
The July issue of UNESCO's education newsletter, Education Today, highlights how emotional this whole issue is and outlines the huge political and economic obstacles.
This issue also features two successful experiences in educating street children in Burundi and Guatemala. And it reports on the Fast-Track Initiative set up to accelerate funding to education for all.

Global Dimension
http://globaldimension.org.uk/
A recent MORI poll found that four out of five middle and secondary school pupils believe it is important to learn about global issues at school. They also feel that it is important to understand global matters in order to make choices about how they want to lead their lives. Yet although many teachers would like to tackle these issues, they often suffer from a lack either of resources, or of sufficient background information to allow them to tackle such complex issues with confidence.
The aim of this website is to help teachers gain access to these things.
