Book review: What we can learn from the education system around the world

“The Smartest Kids in the World: And how they got that way” by Amanda Ripley

Came for yet another parenting book, only to found out that this is not that kind of book, but stayed for the comparative study of education system in different parts of the world.

It becomes very obviously clear after reading this book that why Finland has the best education in the world, why South Korean nation behave the way they behave, and why America is lagging behind.

The template and the analogies can also be applied in many other countries like why Taiwan is advancing, why many Singaporeans are burning out like in South Korea, and why the poorest countries stay poor.

And funnily enough, from all the lessons discovered from this book, I got to learn how to best teach my kids afterall.
