A bad report card on American education. New test scores show American students continue to lag in international rankings.
According to results from the Program for International Student Assessment, U.S. teenagers ranked below average in math and near average in reading and science – trailing behind countries like Japan and China where students of the same age continue to maintain top scores.
Can this be fixed and what does this mean for businesses and America`s competitiveness.
Michelle Rhee, former chancellor of the public schools in Washington D.C. and currently the CEO and founder of StudentsFirst shares her insight.
