The National Center on Education and the Economy researches the best international education practices and adapts them for use in the United States. In partnership with the Business Roundtable—a membership organization of leading U.S. companies—the center will co-manage a study that benchmarks the world’s top-performing education and training systems, identifying policies and practices necessary for the United States to meet and exceed these benchmarks and conveying recommendations to the business community and the American public. This study will support the evidence base for deeper learning by delineating the key attributes of high-performing international education systems and communicating the results to influential audiences.
