display_descriptionIn The Global Achievement Gap, education expert Tony Wagner situates our school problems in the larger context of the demands of the global knowledge economy. With insights gained from visits to classrooms in leading suburban schools, he analyzes performance by considering the skills needed to get a good job and become a productive citizen. Highlighting discussions with young people and the adults who work with them, Wagner also explains the ways in which today's generation is differently motivated to excel.A manifesto for the twenty-first century, The Global Achievement Gap is a must-listen for anyone interested in seeing our young people achieve their full potential.
