Shanghai: The World's Best School System

Shanghai: The World's Best School System | High Performing School Systems - Asia | Scoop.it
What they do right, and what the rest of the world can learn.
Asia Education Foundation's insight:

China has a long tradition of respect for education. In fact, there is much societal and family pressure to do well academically. This has fostered education reform throughout history at many levels. While the entire country has made strides in education, Shanghai is at the forefront as it has been given special authority to experiment with reform before the rest of the country. With its recent rankings at the top of the PISA 2009 exam, all eyes will be on how these reforms were made.
