Examining education worldwide, he explains the way schools work, noting how curricula are remarkably consistent around the world.

Considering various styles such as progressive versus formal, he also explores the ideas of someof the big theorists, including Piaget and Vygotsky. Looking at different forms of education and styles of teaching, he considers the ways in which education is being improved by matching styles of learning to teaching, and ensuring that schools are more inclusive and meaningful for a broader range of students.
