In the last 20 years, Shanghai’s public schools threw out the “how to teach and run a school” playbook, and wrote their own. The results are staggering. This municipal school district has shot to the top of the world’s rankings – way ahead of Eurangloland. Dr. Godfree Roberts, a retired educator and administrator, explains on China Rising Radio Sinoland, why Shanghai’s public school students are getting the world’s best high school diploma.

Not only was he a tireless tinkerer and experimenter, but as a people, the Chinese are too, which helps explain their phenomenal success for the last 5,000 years, as well as in current events. This, in spite of Western propaganda drivel depicting the Chinese as mindless copycats and pedantic memorization Myrmidons, who can’t analyze and think independently.
