    Darn. I was hoping the USA would fall entirely out of the Top 20. We're going to have to work on that.

    How embarrassing for the United States.

    Can't wait to hear from all those people (read: conservatives) who think we shouldn't pay attention to the rest of the world and have nothing to learn from them or model ourselves after.

    A top challenge in USA seems to be math and physics. When compared internationally USA falls behind there.

    Says there that higher education is related to higher economic development. Assuming the reverse would also apply. should be news worthy and concerning.

    Our problem is that we seriously OVER-educate the vast majority of our students here in the United States; both in the type of education they get and in the amount of it they get.

    Mostly because we are asking people who will never use that information to try and learn it. Why are we doing that? It's ridiculous.

    Indeed, but that is common knowledge. Why this annual ranking is news worth is my concern.

    Not true at all. Wealthy students tend to be properly educated. Many middle class students are properly educated. Most poor students are under-educated - it's that demographic that tends to bring the standing of the U.S. in education down.
