At a time when globalization and technology are dramatically altering the world we live in, is education reform in the United States headed down the right path? Are schools emphasizing the knowledge and skills that students need in a global society-or are schools actually undermining students' strengths by overemphasizing high-stakes testing and standardization? Are education systems in China and other countries really as superior as some people claim?
Educators, policymakers, parents, and others interested in preparing students to be productive global citizens will gain a clear understanding of what kinds of knowledge and skills constitute "digital competence" and "global competence," and what schools can-and must-do to meet the challenges and opportunities brought about by globalization and technology.
