A World-Class Education: Learning from International Models of Excellence and Innovation

Designed to promote conversation about how to educate students for a rapidly changing and increasingly borderless and innovation-based world, this comprehensive and illuminating book from international education expert Vivien Stewart is not about casting blame; it is about understanding what the best school systems in the world are doing right for the purpose of identifying what U.S. schools—at the national, state, and local level—might do differently and better. Here, you’ll consider

  • How the U.S. education system fares against emerging international standards of excellence.
  • The policies, practices, and priorities of the world’s best-performing systems, along with specific ideas for adapting these approaches for U.S. schools.
  • The common factors characteristic of high-performing and rapidly improving systems.
  • New models of 21st century teaching and leadership and ways to modernize curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
  • How technology and international exchange can help the United States close performance gaps and reach new levels of excellence and equity.
