The Best Of Our Knowledge #1197

Aug 28, 2013

Where can you find the smartest kids in the world? It’s not an easy question.  It’s probably not even a fair question.  But it’s a question that one journalist and author sought to answer by following three US students as they studied in countries with some of the best education outcomes in the world. Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, the search for the smartest kids in the world.

Then we’ll turn around and look the other way to hear how four student from large cities around the world cope in a tiny…and I mean tiny Montana town.  And we’ll spend an academic minute looking at the other leg in the stool…evaluating teachers.
