Overview


This book answers a simple question: How would one redesign the American education system if the aim was to take advantage of everything that has been learned by countries with the world’s best education systems?

With a growing number of countries outperforming the United States on the most respected comparisons of student achievement—and spending less on education per student—this question is critical.

Surpassing Shanghai looks in depth at the education systems that are leading the world in student performance to find out what strategies are working and how they might apply to the United States. Developed from the work of the National Center on Education and the Economy, which has been researching the education systems of countries with the highest student performance for more than twenty years, this book provides a series of answers to the question of how the United States can compete with the world’s best.

This books provides an easily understood summary of a 20 year benchmark study of what five countries who outperform the United States on international achievement tests, did to reach their respective high levels of performance. What is most helpful is the comparison of what these Countries did with what our Country is now doing. There are some surprises in the findings.
