Below are just a few figures from the wordpress.com who merely compiled several reports from other agencies regarding the ranking systems in education and how the U.S. ranked compared to the other Countries that were evaluated.
Pearson Education: January, 2015: Education: 14th out of 40 evaluated Countries
IPSOS Mori: October, 2014: Ignorance: 2nd out of 14 evaluated Countries
PISA: December, 2013: Literacy: 24th out of 65 evaluated educational systems.
EIU: January, 2015: Educational Performance: 17th out of 40 evaluated Countries
CIA: October, 2010: Educational Expenditure: 54th of 173 evaluated Countries
While statistics alone don't represent the final answer about our current education system in the United States, it does speak volumes about what our Children are going through compared to other places in the World...even some 3rd World countries are getting better results than our current system.
I'd like to propose a poll on opinions of this matter and suggest that our debaters each bring something to the table in the form of a solution to follow their point or argument. If you agree that our Public Schools are more harmful than helpful then please bring a solution and we can debate those as well. If you think the system is acceptable as is then please bring a solution that would bring forth a positive light to our education system that seems to be getting a bad rap.https://rankingamerica.wordpress.com/category/education/http://www.pearsoned.com/about-us/
Is Public School more HARMFUL than BENEFICIAL?
