The education superpowers believed in rigor. People in these countries agreed on the purpose of school: School existed to help students master complex academic material. Other things mattered, too, but nothing mattered as much.That clarity of purpose meant everyone took school more seriously, especially kids. The most important difference I'd seen so far was the drive of students and their families. It was viral, and it mattered more than I'd expected. Eric and his friend Jenny had reminded me what I'd forgotten in adulthood: kids feed off each other. This feedback loop started in kindergarten and just grew more powerful each year, for better and for worse. Schools and parents could amp up student drive through smarter, more meaningful testing that came with real consequences for teenagers' lives; through generous grants of autonomy, the kind that involved some risk and some reward; and through higher quality, more challenging work, directed by the best educated teachers in the world. But those policies were born out of a pervasive belief in rigor. Without it, those things just didn't happen.
