How Do American Schools Stack Up Internationally?

 

On improving schools excerpt from The Egalitarian Illusion by Jane Weir American Renaissance August 28, 2015 quoting Prof. Raymond Wolters University Of Delaware author of The Long Crusade: Profiles in Education Reform, 1967-2014

Wolters

“There is simply not much improvement to be made. Our Asians are as good as Asia’s Asians–actually, better than Koreans or Japanese. Our white kids beat everyone else’s white kids except Finland’s. Our Hispanics outscored all eight Latin American countries. Our black kids trounced Trinidad, the blackest nation on the PISA list.”

Prof. Wolters notes that the problem is not schools. It is increasing numbers of low-scoring blacks and Hispanics who are dragging down our scores in international comparisons.
