Global education has increasingly become an important element in school curriculum when educators and policy-makers see the need of preparing youth to cope with the challenges being brought about by the force of globalization. Through an in-depth case-study of an international school, this paper seeks to analyse the practices and problems of teaching about the world in the global classrooms that are multi-ethnic and multicultural. It is expected that the findings could shed light on the improvement if global education is to be holistically and effectively developed. Copyright © 2009 James Nicholas Publishers.
