America's blueprint for mass education has been followed across the globe-yet international student assessments show achievement varies sharply, with the U.S. and much of Europe typically scoring average, at best. Not surprisingly, this state of affairs has sparked anxieties about an educational crisis. In these 24 thought-provoking lectures led by an Associate Professor of Comparative and International Education, you'll take a meaningful look at education around the world to understand why.
