20/20 Stupid in America – John Stossel

“20-20 investigation by John Stossel entitled “Stupid in America” highlighting some of the flaws with the education system in the United States.

The story started out when identical tests were given to high school students in New Jersey and in Belgium. The Belgian kids cleaned the American kids’ clocks. The Belgian kids called the American students “stupid”, which gave the piece its name.

Jay Greene, author of “Education Myths,” points out that “If money were the solution, the problem would already be solved: We’ve doubled per pupil spending, adjusting for inflation, over the last 30 years, and yet schools aren’t better.” “

    It would have been interesting to see a group of home-schooled students take the same tests.
    I guess Federally-controlled public education in America has probably been effectively discredited…
