24 Countries That Have Smarter Children Than America

America's children rate embarrassingly low again on the latest round of scholastic tests from the OECD.

Basically, America earned a "C." We tied the OECD average rating of 496. Teenagers in East Asia and Europe scored significantly higher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The title here is misleading.

It is not that the kids from these other countries are inherently more intelligent than kids from the US: the US educational system has been "dumbed down" to the point where our kids have not been given the tools to allow them to compete in a global economy.

Most generally, they are taught completely by rote, taught to obey without question, and simply regurgitate what the teacher says; and real critical thinking, and an ability to put facts and figures together in a way that demonstrates the validity of a concept, is frowned upon.
