Catching Up or Leading the Way Yong Zhao

Globalization Issues

  • Zhao does a good job of explaining what has led to globalization. If you don’t know the details I recommend this book. I also point you to the summary of Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat, which can be found on this blog. Important questions for educators related to this issue are: Why would the world’s employers pay us more than they have to pay talented people from places like India to do their work? What can we do to help our children live, work, and interact with people from different cultures and countries? The ability to interact effectively with people who speak different languages, believe in different religions, and hold different values has become essential for all workers. NCLB has already squeezed out room for subjects other than those being tested.

  1. As a teacher and parent continually being bombarded with the benefits of high stakes testing, this is a book I long to read. Thank you. I marvel at the foreign students that flood into our rural schools here and am always warmed by the notion that what they seem to looking for is balance… I continue to search for this in ePub format. Thanks for the review.
