“World Class,” the title of Teru Clavel’s book, refers to her family’s 10-year odyssey from New York to Hong Kong, to Shanghai and Tokyo before their eventual return to California, and the different education systems her children experienced in each of those places. The book is an examination of what a world-class education system — and its opposite — looks like.

The title also acts as a mission statement: to discover what a world-class primary education looks like outside of the “privilege and ennui of elite private schools.”
