Once upon a time in America, we led the world in educational achievement, but according to the Learning Curve, we now rank 17th out of 40 industrialized nations. Another survey by the Program for International Student Assessment reported the U.S. is 38th out of 71 countries in math and 24th in science.

If you believe this is not something to be concerned about, you are in the teachers’ union.
