Global Education Study

In 2012, we traveled the globe to learn from some of the world’s highest-performing school systems. Joined by business and education leaders from across Ohio, we embarked on a journey with an open-mind and a mission to discover what some of the world’s best school systems are doing right.

We visited:


Hong Kong
Long Beach, California
Ontario, Canada


Although there are many differences among these systems, we saw six common drivers of student success:

1  Early Learning
2  Personalization and Pathways for Students
3  Teacher Selectivity, Quality, and Growth
4  Focus on Learning
5  Education Linked to Economic Development
6  Culture Expectation of Value
