The article addresses world hunger. It mentions the excuses of educators for side-stepping issues like hunger, as do students who show little interest in learning about them. It reveals why curricular ethnocentrism is perhaps more pronounced in the U.S. It recommends that the best an outside can do for educators is to try to help them ask the right questions about hunger and underdevelopment. It examines whether hunger can be fought and eliminated. It discusses the economics of hunger. It explores the relationship between Iranian food dependency and the rise of a certain Ayatollah.
