Public Schools…a costly failure

Thanks to the Marietta, OH  9/12 Project for the heads up on this article dealing with the failure of American Schools:

https://fee.org/articles/the-failure-of-public-schooling-in-one-chart/

Some excerpts:
“The problem isn’t limited to minority students. Only 46% of white fourth-graders—and 35% of fourth-graders of all races—were judged “proficient” in reading in 2015. In general, American students are outperformed by students abroad. According to the most recent Program for International Student Assessment, a series of math, science and reading tests given to 15-year-olds around the world, the U.S. placed 17th among the 34 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development countries in reading.”

“This is very grim news, especially when you consider that the United States spends more on education – on a per-pupil basis – than any other country.”

(LFC Comment: We have been told that up to 70% of Cleveland Public Schools’ children cannot read when they graduate from high school!!!

Our lobbyists in Kirtland have told us that many, many students that enter the early college program at Lakeland Community College are not ready for college work, and must take remedial courses to get up to speed.)
