Cleverlands: The Secrets Behind the Success of the World’s Education Superpowers
About this deal
I too feel that the UK education system is misguided, in that they are focusing on the wrong things. Cleverlands: The secrets behind the success of the world’s education superpowers by Lucy Crehan has been named as one of The Economist’s books of the year for 2016. take the opportunity to go and have a look at countries around the world and see what it is like in those schools.
I read a lot of reports and studied a lot of graphs, but they didn’t give me any idea about what education actually looked like in each place, only about what policies were ‘officially’ followed (I know from experience that these are not the same thing).Yet, whilst it is academic and analytical as required, it is very much a personal odyssey – and all the more engaging a read as a consequence.
