Your analysis is wrong - the United States economy is the envy of the world. What you are noticing is the Affirmative Action policy that has created a racial double-standard in education. Our education system is over-filled with foreign born students seeking the most recent knowledge developments. Our welfare system is overwhelmed by foreign born immigrants. Our defense budget provides jobs for those foreigners who refuse to go back to their wonderful countries.

You know, I could have sworn that the US was built off of and essentially around immigration....

Yes, but being a small-minded nativist reactionary is an equally old and proud tradition.

Well, except for the "proud" bit.

I know right, I'm sure it was something like all white people in America are immigrants who came there looking for work within the last few centuries. Drinking Beverage

We don't pay the teachers anything, and no one is smart enough to care because all of our budget goes to the military.

Quote:This paper would be an F from any other student.

Don't kid yourself about that.

When the kids get good grades the parents are happy and they don't bitch to the principal which means that the teachers don't get a load of shit thrown at them, either.

Do you think THIS happens by accident?

Quote:WASHINGTON (AP) — In an abysmal showing, only about one-quarter of U.S. high school seniors performed solidly in math in a major assessment known as the nation's report card, reinforcing concerns that large numbers of students are unprepared for either college or the workplace.

*people I have talked to about why I am leaving america

"Americas not bad. Americas education is actually good."

One data point does not a statistical analysis make.

Or did they not teach you that in your American school?

Also: did anybody follow this trainwreck? Now that involved some real statistics. Well; on my behalf, at least.

Well that's what you get for talking to Libertarians

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.
