The Smartest Kids in the World by Amanda Ripley

the smartest kids in the worldThis is an amazing book that will totally blow away your preconceptions about public education, and shine a lot on a promising path. The author traveled around the world for two years to visit schools in Finland, Poland, and Korea with American exchange students. She spoke with local educators, students, and parents, too, and saw how they all worked together, indeed fought for, their education. If you care about schools or have kids, you will find this fascinating.
