Quick Overview

Counting What Counts illustrates how current measures of academic achievement do not account for skills necessary to learn and live successfully in the 21st century. The authors advocate for a new paradigm of education that supports students' lifelong learning and diversity of skills rather than admirable test scores. K-12 teachers, school and district administrators, and policymakers will learn the importance of global citizenship and how to measure global competence.
