This article seems fitting after the crap I've read on here today.
Other Nations Outclass U.S. on Education
I will post the link below.
No, unfortunately. It doesn't surprise me at all. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that we spend too much time trying to implement 'feel good curriculum' instead of focusing on the basics.

No child left behibd crap. Totally ruined our countries education. We were better off before it.
Actually, we were still ranked pretty low for a nation of our caliber BEFORE the 'No Child Left Behind' crap...

Why do American kids need an education?
The government is there to care for them cradle to grave!

It's because we have to teach the liberal agenda above all else, sex education, my two dads, my two mommy's, how to put a rubber on a banana,.and learning songs praising Obama. I bet we rank at the top on these.

In the US if you have MONEY you can receive a wonderful education- if you're middle class or below, the odds decrease dramatically. There are wonderful public school districts in the US, but they are found in the high rent (property tax) areas. We chose private schools and were not disappointed in the outcomes. The reports have shown these same trends for years.
