If the United States wishes to remain competitive in a globalized economy, its educational system will need to make significant changes to enable its graduates to work in a workplace that is international in its connections with suppliers and customers. Although English is an international language, foreign language learning, especially Chinese and Arabic, will need to increase. Study abroad programs and increasing admission of international students will result in a more globalized outlook. Students in the United States will need to have a broader background in such humanistic disciplines as world history and literature in order to understand other cultures better.
