Cleverlands: The Secrets Behind the Success of the World's Education Superpowers [9781783522736]

'Thought-provoking... a must-read' - Sir Clive Woodward

'A major breakthrough' - Sir Michael Barber

'A remarkable and original book... Should be required reading' - Dylan Wiliam

As a teacher in an inner-city school, Lucy Crehan was exasperated with ever-changing government policy claiming to be based on lessons from 'top-performing' education systems. She became curious about what was really going on in classrooms of the countries whose teenagers ranked top in the world in reading, maths and science.

Determined to dig deeper, Lucy set off on a personal educational odyssey through Finland, Japan, Singapore, Shanghai and Canada, teaching in schools, immersing herself in their very different cultures and discovering the surprising truths about school life that don't appear in the charts and graphs.

Cleverlands documents her journey, weaving together her experiences with research on policy, history, psychology and culture to offer extensive new insights and provide answers to three fundamental questions:

How do these countries achieve their high scores? What can others learn from them? And what is the price of this success?


AUTHOR: Lucy Crehan is a qualified teacher, an education explorer and an international education consultant. She taught science and psychology at a secondary school in London for three years before turning her sights to research and policy and gaining a distinction in her master's in Politics, Development and Democratic Education at the University of Cambridge. Since returning from her groundbreaking trip around the world's `top-performing' education systems, she has published a report on teacher career structures for IIEP UNESCO, advised the UK government as part of a working group on teacher workload, and spoken about her work at conferences in the UK, the US and Sweden. She now works as part of a team advising foreign governments on education reform at the Education Development Trust. Lucy lives in Bath with her fiance Mark.
