As a teacher in an inner-city school, Lucy Crehan was exasperated with ever-changing government policy claiming to be based on lessons from 'top-performing' education systems. She resolved to find out what was really going on in the classrooms of countries whose teenagers ranked top in the world in reading, maths and science.

Cleverlands documents Crehan's journey around the world, weaving together her experiences with research on policy, history, psychology and culture to offer extensive new insights into what we can learn from these countries.

"Lucy Crehan's book is refreshingly fair-minded and makes a case that there is a lot to learn about how other countries learn." -- Books of the Year * Economist *
"Audacious and important . . . Cleverlands is not just for specialists: it's a wry and accessible narrative of personal enterprise." * Prospect *
"Mind-expanding and topical . . . completely fascinating. As a serving primary school governor, I read it avidly, and it made me dream of an education system that is designed by thoughtful, experienced and caring teachers." * Bookseller *
"Crehan's work has the edge . . . a powerful defence of the idea that there is a lot to learn from how other countries learn." * Economist *
"Thought-provoking . . . a must-read" -- Sir Clive Woodward
