The debate rages on about U.S. education. Some say the U.S. population is different than in countries with higher achievement scores. It all depends upon how you look at it, according to the latest N.Y. Times article: America’s Schools are Lagging: Maybe It’s Not the Schools.
The controversy is interesting. Do people with low incomes in the U.S. live better than people in other developed countries? How different are these countries based on socio-economic characteristics? How different are their educational systems?
