The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way
The Smartest Kids in the World: And How They Got That Way. What could have been cold and boring comes alive through the stories of three American exchange students in those countries. Those countries that are doing well in education hold in common one theme: rigor. They use rigor in the teacher selection process, ensuring that only the best and brightest join the teaching profession. They also apply rigor in the classroom: setting high expectations for students and following a disciplined approach to ensuring those expectations are met. Any reader with an interest in education should consider this book as required reading. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Smartest Kids in the World from amazon.com.
