    -First of all, as most really good teachers know, there is a difference between education and turning something into a lesson (which is what Frank did). Education can be done well without ‘lecturing’.-Secondly, I used to automatically accept articles that concluded that US education levels were continuing to fall, until I read a study from Stanford’s Education Professor Martin Carney. The Professor suggests that many of these studies are skewed, because they are not comparing apples with apples.-The Professor pointed out that US statistics include those of students from poorer backgrounds, who don’t start out with the advantages that many of the students from wealthier backgrounds in other countries have.-His finding was that if the socio-economic information on foreign students was included, that US rankings rose to 4th in reading and 10th in math.

    argy.bargy2: And you can get even higher rankings by excluding all those who never get perfect scores, but loaded statistics are useless. Face facts and try to alter the factors that lower the ranking. Carney is advocating skewing, not honest data.
