9780739128084: Asia's Educational Edge: Current Achievements in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, and India

The United States in the past half-century has consistently led the world in the strength of its economy and in scientific research and development. Now, this position at the forefront of industry and innovation is threatened. Asia's Educational Edge warns that the United States relies heavily on the talent of foreign-born scientists and engineers_skilled workers who face increasing, and increasingly favorable, options for employment elsewhere. East Asia's and India's emerging economies are expanding their own higher education capacity in the sciences and their own research and development infrastructure. Accordingly, the United States faces great and growing competition in attracting talented students and professionals from the international community. In this carefully researched volume, Yugui Guo asks: Can the U.S. education system succeed in training enough high-quality students in the sciences to meet the ever-growing need? Asia's Educational Edge is essential reading for industrial and research leaders, policy makers, educators, and scholars of international and comparative education.

About the Author:

Yugui Guo is distinguished professor at the China Institute of Education Policy at Beijing Normal University, and past director of the Center for Global Studies in Education at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics.

Review:

Yugui Guo is a unique resource in international comparative education. He provides objective assessments of the educational strengths and weaknesses of the five major Asian countries that are accelerating their degrees in science and engineering, and gives an interesting Asian perspective on the U.S. educational system. (Jean M. Johnson, National Science Foundation)

At a time when U.S. political and business leaders are becoming increasingly alarmed at the relocation of skilled jobs overseas as a result of outsourcing, this book is a welcome contribution to the current debate on education policies and economic competitiveness. . . . [It] warns against the danger of post-September-11th restrictive measures that have begun to erode the country's ability to attract foreign talent. (Jamil Salmi, World Bank)

Asia's Educational Edge is an excellent book and a must-read for faculty and students interested in comparative and international education. U.S. education policy makers will find Guo's analysis of Asian educational achievements both informative and challenging. (Stephen C. Dunnett, State University of New York, Buffalo)

Dr. Guo has produced a comprehensive analysis of Asia's growing capacity in the disciplines that will define leadership in science, engineering, and technology for decades to come. Asia's Educational Edge is a sobering reminder that human capital is a nation's most precious asset and that America's economic future depends on our ability to keep pace. (John Yochelson, president, BEST (Building Engineering and Science Talent))

This is a well-documented argument that anyone interested in the future of American education and especially in the future of the educational underpinnings of the American high-tech economy should read. (William K. Cummings, George Washington University, from the Foreword)

Guo's comparative analysis sets a baseline for Americans to understand the competitive forces at work in the world today. (Alfred R. Berkeley, chairman, Pipeline Trading)

Asia's Educational Edge: Current Achievements in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, and India was undertaken both to provide a comparitive analysis of the educational systems― including K-12 education, higher education, and international education― of these five economies and to ask whether the United States will be prepared to train its own students in science and technology fields as more and more Asians seek tertiary education, terminal degrees, and ultimately, careers in Asia.... Armed with an impressive arsenal of statistics, presented intertextually as well as graphically, Guo predicts that, as opportunities increase in Asia, a smalle proportion of Asians will train for advanced degrees in the STEM( (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields in the United States.... Guo's book should provide a useful resource to scholars of Asia or international education. (Southeast Review of Asian Studies, Volume 29 (2007))
