America’s Education Not As Bad As You Think

I've been saying this for years. The sample pools they use are all wrong when they compare American students to students in other parts of the world, because in other parts of the world, they weed people out by ability at a young age.
This article seems to confirm what I have been saying, which I have no specific knowledge of ... just a lot of common sense.
Practically everything can be explained by common sense, logic and demographics.
America’s Education Not As Bad As You Think.“A eye-opening new paper comparing U.S. students to their international peers by social class finds that the richest Americans are world-class readers, and in math, our disadvantaged kids have improved more than almost any other country.”

It's not about the education.
It's about the taxpayer dollars.
And electing Democrats.

Can't argue with history, Bob. I mean where else can pedophiles get so close to so many children with such little scrutiny for so many hours in a day? I mean if Satan himself were to design a place where children could be raped and buggered and tricked into drinking teachers' sperm or licking teachers' genitalia the Evil One would make todays public schools that very place of hell.

That's really the only conclusion anybody can make.
When you take our entire student population and compare them to Germany's elite, and then use that as an excuse to say America's educational system, the most expensive in the world, sucks, the only reason can be that someone is manipulating the statistics.
Like Mike Ditka said, statistics are for losers.
