Some brief overview of this book

Through the compelling stories of three American teenagers living abroad in the world’s top-notch schools, an education expert explains how these systems cultivate the “smartest” kids on the planet.

America has long compared its students to top-performing kids of other nations. But how do the world’s highest-ranked school systems look through the eyes of an American high school student? Author Amanda Ripley has the surprising answer to this question—and many more concerning key issues in education reform in the US. When three teenagers uproot from their homes in America to spend one school year in Finland, South Korea, and Poland, Ripley follows them to discover how certain attitudes, systems, and parenting styles are creating the world’s best public schools.

In Where the Smart Kids Are, Ripley’s astonishing new insights reveal that top-performing countries have gained their ranks only in the past several decades, that fine teachers value prestige as much as (or more than) pay, and that helicopter parenting doesn’t necessarily produce smarter kids.

Ripley’s investigative work seamlessly weaves narrative and fact, providing in-depth research and gripping details that will keep you turning the pages. Written in a clear and engaging style, Where the Smart Kids Are will enliven public as well as household debates over what makes for brighter and better students.
