“China’s schoolchildren are now the smartest in the world, outperforming their American and Canadian peers in an international assessment on reading, math and science. The U.S. ranked eighth in reading, 30th in math and 11th in science, per The Wall Street Journal, while Canadian students out-scored Americans in every subject — coming in fourth at reading, 10th in math and sixth in science, The Globe and Mail reports.”
According to the book, “None, Dare Call It Education,” thirty years ago public education in America switched its emphasis from educating our children in basic life skills to indoctrinating our children in the new social morales.
Every parent and grandparent who have children and grandchildren in a public school owes it to themselves to read this book. This slide from being first in the world to its present ranking happened in one generation.
Where will it be in one more generation?
