Nine Milwaukee Public Schools have integrated a new United Nations Schools of International Learning curriculum this year through a $100,000 grant from a Greater Milwaukee Foundation donor for World Peace, World Law, and Peace Education. The program incorporates world studies and Model United Nations content at the elementary and middle school levels.
Students in the program master critical academic skills including research, writing, & presenting with a focus on world affairs & current events. In addition to learning about other countries, cultures, and international relationships, students gain experience in debate, negotiation, and conflict resolution.
