    Those are the Countries you named off. That pattern is very easy to see and recognize
    Quite a few of those 13 to 24 countries come from Europe. And Europe is actually facing a pretty big immigration problem especially after the establishment of the EU. Granted not as big as the U.S. but a big enough problem none the less.

    Okay, simple enough.

    What are they doing that we aren't?

    That's my whole point. I would love to know what it is. We could benefit from it and save money in the process.

    But, who's really saving money?

    I stick by what I said. Pro Athletes make 10X? what they should, and top-tier teachers make50%? if what they should.

    My math is MUCH better than my reading, and even considering the ratio of Pro Athletes:Teachers, this is an easy problem to solve....

    But truth is, many teachers are also handcuffed to what they can and can't do.

    I still think that diversity of what is being professed is part of the story.

    I'm not so sure that isn't a false choice, but even so I think if one's idea of education includes treating the students as mindless automatons, it doesn't matter how many teachers you have.
    Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.

    No false dilema there unless you want to make the entire thread one. Anyhow, moving on from going tit for tat into that, as I stated from the start I'm not for this. As with lottery this is just a means of politicians and voters to avoid making tough and smart choices in government. For instance, my county doesn't build a 100 million dollar Taj MaJail if there isn't millions from lotto free money for the school budget.
