Best Education System in the World?

Do you know why politicians say the most “uninformed” or “intentionally misleading” things?

Because of America’s gullibility. Until America starts demanding truth and accuracy politicians will feed us a never ending diet of garbage, unvetted claims and intentional misrepresentations.

For example, Obama gave a speech in West Virginia this week and got a huge applause when he said that America has the best education system in the world. Oh yeah Mr. President?

Well Obama’s alma mater, Harvard University conducted a study which found that students in Latvia, Chile and Brazil are making gains in academics three times faster than American students. In fact America is seventh in literacy, 27th in math, 22nd in science.

 

And for young African American boys, who are systematically “under-educated” the picture is gruesomely bleak. 

So I get the President wanting to highlight American exceptionalism but no matter what formula you use, you won’t find American exceptionalism in the American education system. The facts just don’t add up!
