The Sputnik moment metaphor (or is it a simile?) has made resurgence in the media stream intended to be a rallying cry for Americans to the true challenges facing the country. Most recently this NY Times article on Shangai students outperforming their western counterparts in standardized test scores. Reminds me of a TedX talk by Blair Taylor who shared his lessons learned by observing the Chinese education system and gave a rousing call to action for fixing the school system.
