Instead of teaching our students to be critical thinkers, we are asking them to memorize facts. Young adults leave school equipped to work only in the kinds of jobs that are disappearing from our economy, and teens in India and China are competing with our students for the most sought-after careers around the world. Tony Wagner explains how we can overhaul our education system, and he shows us examples of dramatically different schools that work. An education manifesto for the twenty-first century,The Global Achievement Gapis essential reading for anyone interested in seeing our young people succeed as employees and citizens.
