The Smartest Kids in the World : And How They Got That Way


Through the compelling stories of three American teenagers living abroad and attending the world's top-notch public high schools, an investigative reporter explains how these systems cultivate the `smartest` kids on the planet.America has long compared its students to top-performing kids of other nations. But how do the world's education superpowers look through the eyes of an American high school student? Author Amanda Ripley follows three teenagers who chose to spend one school year living and learning in Finland, South Korea, and Poland. Through their adventures, Ripley discovers startling truths about how attitudes, parenting, and rigorous teaching have revolutionized these countries' education results. In `The Smartest Kids in the World, `Ripley's astonishing new insights reveal that top-performing countries have achieved greatness only in the past several decades; that the kids who live there are learning to think for themselves, partly through failing early and often; and that persistence, hard work, and resilience matter more to our children's life chances than self-esteem or sports. Ripley's investigative work seamlessly weaves narrative and research, providing in-depth analysis and gripping details that will keep you turning the pages. Written in a clear and engaging style, `The Smartest Kids in the World `will enliven public as well as dinner table debates over what makes for brighter and better students.
