The Chair of the Division of Social, Behavioral, and Global Studies at CSU Monterey Bay, will present "Peace and Human Rights Education in the Philippines: Unintended Consequences of the U.S. Empire." Today, the Philippines is a world leader in educating its children in peace and human rights. High school graduates are expected to have a broad understanding of world affairs and to seek to understand the causes of human conflict. However, the universal and free public education system in which Philippines children now learn about peace and human rights was founded by the United States in 1901 as a wartime strategy. Fulbright Fellow, Gerald Shenk, has written two books which discuss war and American society, one a social history of the World War I draft, and the other on the relationship between citizenship and military service in U.S. history. Donations and food and welcome.
