The Smartest Kids in the World
The US ranks 31st in math skills among 35 developed countries. So what are schools in Europe and Asia doing that we aren’t? Journalist Amanda Ripley joins us to talk about The Smartest Kids in the World.
A survey comparing education around the world ranks the US 31st in math among 35 developed countries. So what are schools in Europe and Asia doing that we aren't? Journalist Amanda Ripley wanted to answer that question, so she followed three American students for a year abroad. Ripley is coming to Utah, so we’re rebroadcasting our conversation about the lessons to be learned from countries where students are excelling. (Rebroadcast)
