I stumbled upon this TEDx Talk:
This is a must-see video. It is one of those that when you watch it you will wish you could shout it from the mountaintops and have every network simultaneously show it during prime time viewing in order to ensure that every U.S. citizen that can view it, does. 🙂
Joshua Katz gives an AMAZING, eye-opening Ted Talk… he brings information about the U.S. being in the TOP among SAME demographic schools around the world!! This is something that people will not tell you. They will parrot misinformation and media, PISA-driven worldwide statistics, all while bemoaning our failing school system; but if you are comparing apples to oranges, the oranges will fall short if your standard is only apples.
Check it out. Leave me your thoughts below.
