"For all the promises made by elected officials over the past several decades, not to mention all their costly federal programs, plans, and spending, American students still perform toward the bottom of the pack internationally. In 2015 compared to 35 developed countries, the U.S. ranked 19th in science, 20th in reading, and 31st in math. To be sure, there is no silver bullet when it comes to improving academic achievement for all American students. But one thing is clear: DC does not know best when it comes to educating other people's children." (12/12/16)
