International Education Leader: Let U.S. Teachers Collaborate, Learn from One Another

The U.S. education system should allow every student to reach his or her own potential, an international education leader said last week in Washington. It should not propel every student on the same track hoping to “equalize” society, she argued.

Montserrat Gomendio, deputy director of the directorate for education and skills at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, went on to tell a room full of education journalists that for the U.S. to become competitive on international tests with countries such as Finland and China, it must focus on teacher recruitment and training in new ways.
