Chinese Lessons: Shanghai's Rise to the Top of the PISA League Tables
Tucker, Marc S., Ed.
National Center on Education and the Economy
Marc Tucker, President of the National Center on Education and the Economy, presents this compilation of interviews with top Chinese education leaders and international researchers exploring some of the policies and practices behind Shanghai's outstanding performance on PISA 2009 and PISA 2012. The interviews include perspectives from Kai-ming Cheng, Tom Corcoran, Ben Jensen, Vivien Stewart, and Minxuan Zhang. Tucker observes that what is striking about these interviews is the way they complement each other. Each of the interviewees sees Shanghai through a different lens--one gets a complete picture only by combining these different views.
