Lucy Crehan

In her first book Crehan, a former teacher, describes her personal educational journey through Finland, Japan, Singapore, Shanghai and Canada, teaching in different schools and immersing herself in their very different cultures. Across these global systems she discovered surprising truths about school life that will not necessarily appear in quantitative data.

Filled with personal stories reflecting individual teachers’ and parents’ experiences and classroom interactions, the book also draws on research about education policy, history, psychology and culture, offering new insights and providing answers to three fundamental questions: how do these countries achieve their high scores? What can others learn from them? And what is the price of this success?

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
