The Global Achievement Gap
Noted author and education thought-leader Tony Wagner has written one of the most important book on education . . . ever. What is the ‘global achievement gap”? It’s the gap between what we are teaching and testing in our schools (even the ones that are highly-regarded) versus the skills all students need for careers, college, and citizenship in the 21st Century. A profoundly important book. Available in audio, hard copy, and paperback. Discussion guide coming soon.
