Sputnik, Chinese education, and us!

Nicholas D. Kristoff said it so well in today's NY Times. Read it! It is not the Chinese stealth bomber that we should be so concerned, it is China's desire for educational reform! We have no Confucius here in the USA undergirding our educational reform; but we do have lots of talent and we still have some of the best schools in the world--thus far. We have a lot of work to do--both countries. And here's hoping that we can do it together as two of the worlds great superpowers. Here's hoping that if we do this together both China and USA will be stronger. Smart power--smart educational reform!
