Introduction by Thomas Baldwin:  The report included is one which is compiled every three years and here is the one for 2013.  Although the crooks and bums in the administration and Congress keep telling us the U.S. is “exceptional” the data for numerous studies, including healthcare, show otherwise.  But our elected officials tell us lies so the people will not challenge them.  Here are the results for mathematics, science and reading, critical educational skills.  The U.S. ranks 35th in mathematics, 24th in science, reading, and 27th in reading (counting from the charts below).  For one of  the wealthiest countries in the world, that makes us “exceptionally” bad!

Here’s The New Ranking Of Top Countries In Reading, Science, And Math

The OECD is out with new global rankings of how students in various countries do in reading, science, and math. Results of the full survey can be found and delved into here.

You can see below how Asian countries are obliterating everyone else in these categories.

The United States, meanwhile, ranks below the OECD average in every category. And as the WSJ notes, the US has slipped in all of the major categories in recent years:

The results from the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), which are being released on Tuesday, show that teenagers in the U.S. slipped from 25th to 31st in math since 2009; from 20th to 24th in science; and from 11th to 21st in reading, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, which gathers and analyzes the data in the U.S.
