    1) unions

    2) lack of competition

    3) free tuition

    Liberals approve of and continue to support the above status quo because it was their dream come true, and so they are 100% responsible for making our kids among the dumbest in the world!

    The obvious solution is to remove liberal influence from education.

    That's a dumb statement. Dumbness is indicative of an inability to speak or a low IQ. People with a low IQ usually have trouble learning, be it in school, at work or on these boards. Parents are usually more responsible for their child's IQ's than unions, boards of education, cheap books or staying up late. If American kids are among the dumbest in the civilized world might check with the parents.

    You cant kill or replace the parents, but you can kill or replace the liberals who run our schools and make our kids among the dumbest in the civilized world.

    Ghetto parents are in theory among the dumbest parents but they are the ones who want Republican vouchers the most. So, even dumb parents know better than liberals how to help or kids.

    We have been throwing money at education for a long time and it still goes downhill. Our kids are spoiled enduledged and under worked. We don't value knowledge, we have been taught over the years that we are entitiled and that we shouldn't have to work for what we want, just sit back and complain and it will be given to you. The dem's are great at fullfilling that need but the Repb's let it happen. I think we are both at fault. Grades go down so we hire an administrator who we pay more money thant the last thinking that this will fix it but it doesn't. Teachers face budget cuts and can't teach because our kids can't behave. That is why our kids are among the dumbest in the world and don't start that play on words, if you can't figure this out you fit the thread.

    Abdication of parental responsibility is the primary cause.

    Public education in the US, one of the world's earliest, was done for more than one reason. It is an example of a US institution which, like the House of Representatives, once served the people. Of course, one could say the politicians are serving the people - to those powers that would consume them.

    the US tests all students for their ststs. Not all countries do that.
    Some countries do not mainstream their special ed students nor do they have special ed.

    The US has more immigrants than all other nations combined. Many of those immigrants are illiterate and have never been to school or very litle school.

    Other developed countries do not have our "diverse" population. Look and see who is at the bottom of the achievement gap folks.

    In short, we are not doing as bad as some might believe.
