This week, we discuss a recent book by journalist Amanda Ripley, “The Smartest Kids in the World and How They Got that Way.” The book looks at what countries with the highest performing education systems are doing right, and Oklahoma plays a prominent role in the story. We also talk about the loss of Oklahoma’s No Child Left Behind waiver, new details on the investigation of a botched execution, numbers of the week, and more.
