Views: 3,390

Like it or not, American education is in a mediocre state. We spend the most per school-aged child in the world but do not see the results to reflect this. A look at the education system and mentality in Finland and Asian cultures may provide the keys to success. Joshua Goodman, Assistant Professor in Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School, explains what we can be doing better.

Once a week, 92nd Street Y’s Campaign for the American Conversation offers you insight and analysis from the best minds at the Harvard Kennedy School. HKS is collaborating with us on American Conversation Essentials – short videos that explain the issues at play during this campaign year. The videos are the building blocks for your own conversations with friends, colleagues and even people you’re not sure you agree with. Start with the information we offer here and then keep your mind open as you discuss the topics of the day.
