Learn how top-performing school systems have met the challenges facing school leaders today and what knowledge and skills are needed to create first-rate systems. Close to half of today's jobs in the U.S. could be done by robots and that proportion is rapidly increasing. It's likely that about half of today's high school graduates won't have the knowledge or skills needed to get a decent job when they graduate. Tomorrow's graduates will be able to thrive, but only if educators use the strategies employed by the world's top-performing education systems to build the high-performance education systems students will need to succeed. The author, a leading expert and researcher, details how top-performing school systems have met the challenges facing school leaders today; why our current system is obsolete, the knowledge and skills needed to design and build first-rate education systems, and the key elements of high-performance school systems.
