ASCD Talks with Author Vivien Stewart
A World-Class Education: Learning from International Models of Excellence and Innovation
(February 2012 Member Book)
The United States’ mediocre performance on international assessments has been cause for alarm. Other countries are developing world-class education systems that are both excellent and equitable—and they’ve done this relatively quickly. The question is, how?
In this month's Talks With an Author, the senior education advisor at Asia Society looks at world-class education in five top-performing countries—Singapore, Canada, Finland, Shanghai, and Australia—and at the lessons these systems hold for the United States.
This interview was conducted by Educational Leadership senior associate editor Amy Azzam.
