EdWeek Report: U.S. Education Under Pressure From Abroad

Education Week's annual Quality Counts report is out, and it's got a great lineup of stories exploring what U.S. education can learn from other countries.

Start with the overview, which examines the swirl of issues that led the U.S. to focus on its own international competitiveness. You might want to read about how other nations professionalize teaching, how they assess students' learning, and how their curricular priorities influenced the Common Core State Standards that have been so widely adopted in this country.

You will also want to check out the multimedia features we've got that spin off from the main themes of Quality Counts, and the range of perspectives on the topic we've pulled together for the Commentary section. Plus, listen to experts discussing these issues at our Quality Counts launch event today.
