The Global Education Race provides an indispensable road map to the world's most pervasive testing program. The authors show with a wealth of evidence that it is high time that we make the transition from the cul-de-sac of big data to the far more inspiring galaxy of big ideas. - Professor Dennis Shirley, Lynch School of Education, Boston College
The Global Education Race is a book every educator should read. In a time when education funding and support is so hotly debated, the book helps build the capacity for the wider public to engage in one of the most popular data sets used when developing policy. - Read Write Respond
The Global Education Race acts as an informative guidebook that not only provides the essential context for understanding what PISA is, but also equips individuals with the necessary tools to question often-exaggerated media claims. - Education Review
The Global Education Race is a concise, yet thoughtful, pragmatic and well-referenced look at the role of large-scale international student testing. - Canadian Journal of Education
