ENDNOTE: Zbacnik, Raymond [MC1977] says it all about US educational results

2015-Apr-04

Zbacnik, Raymond [MC1977] 

The NYT had an interesting article on the American edutainment system.
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/20/education/turning-to-education-for-fun.html?_r=0
The edutainment in the U.S. is putting Americans on the bottom in world math rankings, close to the bottom in science, and somewhat literate.  My physical chemistry professor from Oxford was so entertaining (dramatic presentations, no homework, few exams, no feedback) that all 7 of us students in the special class for chemical engineers turned off our brains, and learned nothing.  We all received a “D” for “dumb.”  The professor, may he rest in peace, died: 16 Dec 1989.  It was very upsetting for Professor Onwood, but other professors told him that sometimes you get a class of stupid people.

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.
