Summary
"Does our education system measure up to the challenge from our competitors? Do our children have a better grasp of grammar than children in other countries? Are they better or worse with numbers? Do they work as hard? These are the kinds of questions being asked by educators, employers and parents in all countries." "There is no shortage of anecdotal views on the subject - fuelled by comment in the media - but reliable evidence is hard to come by. In this book the authors provide that evidence, showing what pupils in England and France are doing in the classroom and what standards they achieve. In the process, they draw on a much overlooked source of understanding - the pupils themselves - whose voices here articulate valuable perceptions of what schooling in England and France feels like from the inside."--Jacket
