EWA Interview: Andreas Schleicher on America’s Standing Among World Education Systems

Andreas Schleicher talks with EWA’s Dale Mezzacappa about how American education policy differs from other countries (0:01); strategies for recruiting highly-qualified teachers to low-performing schools (1:30); and how countries can change their approaches to bring about school improvement (5:30).

Dr. Schleicher is special adviser on education policy to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s secretary-general. As head of OECD’s programs on indicators and analysis in the Directorate for Education, he is also responsible for the development and analysis of benchmarks on the performance of education systems and on the impact of knowledge and skills on economic and social outcomes.

This interview was recorded at EWA’s 64th National Seminar in April 2011 and was made possible in part by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
