Educating Young Giants: What Kids Learn (and Don't Learn) in China and America
Pine, Nancy
Palgrave Macmillan
In her groundbreaking book, Educating Young Giants, Nancy Pine reveals how reliance on antiquated teaching methods and ineffectual reform efforts has left youth in the United States and China ill-equipped for the demands of modern technology and the global economy. Transporting us into Chinese elementary and high school classrooms, Pine, a U.S. education expert, highlights essential differences and striking similarities between the two systems. She shows how parents, educators, and policymakers can implement practical solutions, drawing the best from both systems and genuinely equipping our children to meet the challenges we face in the twenty-first century. (Contains 4 figures.)
