Even Singapore Is Kicking Our Butts Now?

When it comes to science, math and reading, Singapore's teens are the best in the world, according to a international education survey published Tuesday.

In all three subjects, Singapore students demonstrated knowledge and skills equivalent to almost two additional years of schooling compared to students in the US, France and Sweden.
The US improved on its 2012 performance by moving up to 25 on the list.
The findings are part of the 2015 Program International Student Assessment (or PISA) -- a benchmark of education systems conducted every three years by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), a grouping of the world's richest economies.

It is easy to bust on the public education system and in many ways, our public education system is failing.

But our citizens put zero stock in their kid's education.  You can talk inner city all day long but you can also talk rural redneck America as well.

I thought Singapore had been "testing" up near the top for years. Maybe it's because they using caning as a punishment.  Huh

That may very well be. I have to admit, I haven't followed it closely. I did know compared to a lot of the world we're getting our butts kicked in education.

Maybe they're on to something?

I have a feeling that principals don't paddle like they use to in most states now. Probably, less Nuns beating kids over the head with a ruler also.

Sure.  Over 50% of parents today with kids in school could care less about their kid''s education.

It's 'debatable' if that number that don't care is over 50%. I do agree there's a smaller % that don't care. This, I believe is not our problem


Our problem I believe is dedication. We cannot compete with parents/kids from Asia/India etc...

They're willing to give up everything for an education. That's even playing sports.


Example:  I talked to a guy once who lived in a city(forgot the name) near the silicon valley in Calif. Huge immigrant Indian/Asian population due to the High tech jobs there.  The High school, doesn't even have a Football team. Who ever heard of a High school that does not have a Football team?  The kids are dedicated to their school work only.
