I will be reading The Global Achievement Gap by Tony Wagner as my choice book for critical analysis. I chose to read this book because I'm interested in how we compare to other schools on a global scale. I've heard various different arguments about how we compare to other countries. I'm hoping this book will shed some light on all the different arguments. I feel like the consensus is that the United States is behind most other highly developed countries in education, but I'm hoping Wagner will explain more why this is and how we can improve our schools. Wagner points out that many of our students graduating from high school are not prepared to succeed in our ever-changing work force. I'm curious to see what Wagner proposes should be done in schools to change this. I did notice that this book was first published in 2008 and a lot has changed since then, especially with technology, so I will keep that in mind when reading.
