"An international education must go well beyond the provision of information and is involved in the development of attitudes and values which transcend barriers of race, class, religion, gender or politics." —International Baccalaureate Organization Subject Guide (1996). It is my belief that any education that does not unite the nations of the world in a common endeavour i ...more

This is a well thought out essay, delivered in a clear, conversational manner, presenting the International Baccalaureate, IB for short, which is nonprofit educational foundation, and its program, which was introduced worldwide at an international school in Wuxi, China. The mission is to create learners, starting at an early age, and prepare them for not only for college, but for a lifelong journey of learning. The focus is on creating “world citizens.”

Beyond enjoying the easy to grasp discours

Another well-researched book by Thomas Jerome Baker. It's always wise to write about what you know and Thomas Jerome Baker, being an educator, certainly does so. He's written a very informative piece that will prove to be an excellent resource for any parent/student considering the International Baccalaureate program. I myself along with Clyde the Slug did also consider entering. Thomas Jerome Baker provides an objective piece, looking at the pros and cons and giving the reader all the necessary ...more

I was disappointed with this book. I was expecting a much more comprehensive read. It consisted of a few case studies and overviews of those schools that are using the IB system. It had some graphs and statistics here and there but overall I wasn't too impressed. The IB system is super interesting idea and yet I finished reading the book and felt like I still didn't quite get what exactly goes on in the schools. There were many quotes from educators and administrators. I think it would have been ...more

After putting three children through the school system, I’m now watching them navigate the waters with my grandchildren. This is a wonderful book for parents as well as educators. After all, our mission is the same – to inspire a love of learning as early as possible and create a population of world citizens. Thomas Baker has a real passion for education and it shows in all his writing. Highly recommended.

The International Baccalaureate is an interesting view above a new way to proceed with your educational career.
If you're still in the educational path or are evaluating the idea of coming back to school this is a good book to open your range of possibilities. Plus, it's well written, clear and compelling. It flows with absolutely no problems.

The International Baccalaureate: by Thomas Jerome Baker is an excellent book to prepare for a journey in education.
I have found all the information in this book very informative.
Thomas Jerome Baker has done his research and this book proves just how much we need this information in this day and age and as a parent of six, I am glad to have this valuable information at my fingertips.
Normandie Alleman
As someone who has young and middle-school aged children I found this book to be a helpful resource when considering the IB program at our high school. Baker provided the information I was looking for, and I liked the case studies. The author's passion for education is refreshing, and I appreciated his perspective. Would definitely recommend this valuable resource!

Perfect for the school curriculum, as opposed to perhaps a read at home book, The International Baccalaureate has been written by a learned Professor whose wisdom, to my knowledge, is unmatched (certainly unsurpassed). 80+ pages of wonderful information and one of many books by this particular author that prove his ability to share his knowledge well.

If you have no idea about IB programs this is the book for you

The book is really basic and explains in a general way the fundamentals of the IB programs. It also gives relevant data about the program, study cases at different schools as well as interviews and IB schools in different countries.
Christoph Fischer
“The International Baccalaureate: The International Baccalaureate Program: Education With A Global Perspective “ by Thomas Jerome Baker was recommended to me by a friend. It gives a great insight into further education and the history and results of IB. Very informative.
