Is American School Education in shambles and peril?, the Higher Education is not looking any brighter?Quote from the following Naomis article captures the reality of Education in America:
American Education Not World Class The schools systematically let kids down. By grade 4, American students only score in the middle of 26 countries reported. By grade 8 they are in the bottom third, and at the finish line, where it really counts, we're near dead last. Its even worse when you notice that some of the superior countries in grade 8 (especially the Asians) were not included in published 12th grade results. They do not need 12 grades""

Ask this beautiful looking journalist Naomi Schaefer Riley, yes she affirms. Most of her arguments are true, if anyone out there really know where exactly America stands today with regard to science and maths, even the third world nations do much better than America, they are on top of America.
I am not surprised to read the report that says:American Education is not world class, wait a minute?, Is it right to say so, I think they might say American
Education is no longer world class. [Link: American Education Not World Class]. The following chart displays the plight of America, for me it certainly is shocking, I never thought American education is so bad. But many academics may not agree or admit this fact.I can almost imagine the commotion among lots of academics and scholars, what is the school education got to do with college or higher education. Well, that has lots to do with college education dear. First, there is a significant number of foreign students on college courses and research labs, including PhD researchers and postdocs. Higher education or research in America is to a larger extent still alive...
......and appreciated because of the contribution of the so called Aliens?, what a Nasty and moronic classification this US Immigration dept adopted, Aliens?. If most of the higher education and research level progress is made by the foreigners, where is the real progress and growth contributed by Americans?. Don't you see the connection, if more than half of the school students fail to gain knowledge in science and math, it has a crippling effect for the rest of education system, even those American students who do well in schools and colleges hesitate or do not like to go for research or higher education, that is another detrimental factor as to why American education is not world class, top to bottom it is not world class. Look at the staggering numbers below. Even Czech and Slovenia is better than America in Science and Math, what a Shame. Go head and read what Emily has to say....! and oh wait, read some of the comments, there you can find a comment from a Tenured Professor, he unequivocally says that tenure jobs must be eliminated.
