Why the world is smarter than the U.S.

"According to the OECD, 20 countries have higher high school graduation rates than the United States. Among developed nations, our children rank 17th in reading and 31st in math. Even Poland, with high child poverty rates similar to our own, boasts stronger student achievement and faster system-wide improvement."
Our education system sucks. I know you are all shocked to find this out.

 Gee...cut out all humanities and opportunities for kids to be expressive in the name of excessive, repetitive testing, and we have a nation of under-achieving students. Shocked, shocked...
