The premise of this seems to be that a countrywide standardized curriculum would be better for learning outcomes and cultural cohesion. (If I am misrepresenting it, I apologize; I read/skimmed the intro and part of the first chapter.)

I disagree with this on philosophical grounds, and the book did not seem terribly interesting, so I elected not to continue reading the book.
