All signs point to a deterioration in American schools.
According to Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the U.S. ranks 14th in reading, 17th in science and 25th in math. Countries such as Europe and Asia are rapidly expanding their educational systems. The U.S. high school graduation rates are also lower today than they were a decade ago.
Should we care? According to the Hoover Institution, “Weak educational systems won’t ruin the country overnight, but prolonged incompetence will eventually prove consequential”.
Boosting America’s Education system won’t be easy, but if we all join together America will have a fighting chance.
