US Public Schools — Still Terrible

The Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development has released their latest rankings of US schoolkids.

Combined Mathematics Literacy: 24, below Poland, Hungary, and Spain
Space and Shape Skills: 24, below Hungary, Spain, and Ireland
Change and Relationships Skills: 22, below Slovakia, Norway, and Luxembourg

It goes on, and on, and on, but its actually worse than this. Non OECD countries aren’t ranked, but Hong Kong, Liechtenstein, and Macau (?!?) are better than us too.

But at least we don’t have a public education monopoly to blame or anything.
