Eddie Stern, World Peace and 4th graders

Eddie Stern is still in Oslo, but he’s updated his blog.

At first, I thought his latest post meant he was following the NBA playoffs closely. Here in Los Angeles, World Peace means something a little different these days. (I did email Eddie wondering if, as a New Yorker, he was planning to come out as a Lakers fan.)

It turns what Eddie means by world peace is just that. He’s highlighted a documentary on a teacher who has been promoting a 4th grade game of world peace he created in 1978. Eddie also has a link to a TED talk by the teacher, John Hunter. The goal of the game is to expose 9-year-olds to the complexity of geo-politics early on.

Here’s the trailer for the documentary; Eddie has the TED talk at his blog.

If Eddie says it is worth watching, don’t you think it is?
