In Little Soldiers: An American Boy, a Chinese School, and the Global Race to Achieve, journalist and parent Lenora Chu offers a rare glimpse inside China’s insular education system and uses her parenting journey to launch a wider investigation into whether its educational methods are something to which the West should aspire. “We’d moved across the Pacific Ocean to escape the American parenting rat race, only to land squarely in the Chinese equivalent,” Chu writes. “I wondered about the contradictions I was sensing: Was the obedience I observed in my son Rainey part of the Chinese secret to academic success? Were Chinese schools pumping out robots as the critics say, or was China’s education system really superior? Although the world seemed to hail China’s march towards global superstardom, are Chinese methods what the West should measure itself against, much less emulate?”

This program is presented in collaboration with Brazos Bookstore. Pre-order Lenora Chu's book from their website. (
