Are American schools the best in the world? The answer is a resounding maybe.
"As Stanford University education professor Linda Darling-Hammond points out, U.S. 15-year olds in schools with fewer than 10 percent of kids eligible for free or cut-rate lunch "score first in the world in reading, outperforming even the famously excellent Finns.""
I'd like to do a bit more research to see the set-up and numbers in that study.
However, it's refreshing to hear a different tale than "get better teachers". And maybe lessons can be learnt from elsewhere, should pride not get in the way.
