There is a often a hue and cry, sometimes generated by those who hope to make a profit, about our so-called “failing schools.” Many of the challenges facing young people have little to do with what’s going on inside the school’s walls, though obviously there is much that schools can do better.
However, our education system is really not doing that bad….
Here are some articles pointing out some facts. I hope others can suggest more:
The Kids Are All Right is from Mother Jones.
Flunking the Test comes from The American Journalism Review.
Garnet and Jenny made these good suggestions:
U.S. Schools Are Still Ahead—Way Ahead is from Bloomberg.
Quit fretting. U.S. is fine in science education is from USA Today.
Education Guru John Mockler: Our Schools are Succeeding is from The California Teachers Association.
Why Gloomy Pundits and Politicians Are Wrong About America’s Education System is from The Atlantic.
Why U.S. schools are better than we think is from The Washington Post.
Additional suggestions are welcome.
