World Class: How to Build a 21st-Century School System

In this webinar panelists will discus the key question behind Andreas Schleicher’s new book, World Class: How to Build a 21st-Century School System. He writes, “Every economic age has its core asset. In the agricultural age that asset was land; in the industrial age it was capital; and in our times, it is the knowledge, skills and character qualities of people. This core asset remains largely untapped and undervalued. It’s time for us to change that.” Schleicher examines the many successes from which to learn, looking seriously and dispassionately at good practice in countries around the world, all to understand what works in which contexts.

Join the Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed) for a spirited and thoughtful conversation between Schleicher and All4Ed’s president Bob Wise.
