Education Matters

Here is a NY Times article about foreign education. In short, the difference between Americans in school and much of the rest of the developed world can be summed up in this small excerpt:
 “It’s school,” one of them (Finnish school girls) says. “How else will I graduate and go to university and get a good job?” It’s the only sensible answer, of course, but its irrefutable logic still eludes many American students, a quarter of whom fail to graduate from high school.
