Quick Overview

For years, students in the United States have lagged behind students in many other countries on such measures of achievement as the PISA and TIMSS assessments. In an increasingly globalised world, such a gap is worrisome. Armed with statistics, examples and cautionary tales from Scandinavia to Japan, James H. Stronge and Xianxuan Xu have written a book that can help educators better prepare students and close that gap. Educators in every country must ensure that their students are as prepared as possible to lead a future generation of citizens. This though-provoking and copiously researched book provides educators with a blueprint for radical improvement based on the
hard-learned experiences of their peers around the world.
