In a global ranking of educational proficiency, the United States doesn’t feature in the top 10 in reading. Nor does it appear among the top 20 in science or the top 30 in math. In this candid lecture, philanthropist Bill Gates explains the US’s subpar performance: Teachers lack adequate feedback. Though his proposal may seem like a quixotic panacea, Gates has put much thought into its cost, execution and potential. getAbstract recommends his ideas to teachers, administrators and instructors in any industry.
In this summary, you will learn
- Which countries boast the best education systems,
- What shortcomings the US education system suffers,
- How the Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) program benefits teachers and
- How teachers can translate feedback into improvements.
