Prepare your students for the globalized world!

World Class Learners presents concepts that teachers, administrators and even parents can implement immediately, including how to:
With the liberty to make meaningful decisions and explore nontraditional learning opportunities, today′s students will develop into tomorrow′s global entrepreneurs.
"In this important book, Yong Zhao demonstrates persuasively that the race for higher test scores is harmful to our society. What is needed most now, he reminds us, is freedom to think, freedom to invent, and freedom to differ from bureaucratically devised norms."
—Diane Ravitch, Author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System
"In his latest book, Yong Zhao forcefully challenges us to focus on entrepreneurship and innovation. Zhao has established himself as one of the most compelling voices in 21st century education. He is not an education reformer, trying to improve our performance within the old system. He is truly an education transformer, trying to articulate the outcomes that will matter most to our 21st century students."
—Ken Kay, CEO of EdLeader21
Founding President of Partnership for 21st Century Skills
