OBAMA: Tearing Down US Education Achievement

Wildthingstopboards Speaking of Obama, FactCheck.org is slamming the President for under-playing US kids' academic achievement:  "The high school dropout rate hasn't "tripled in the past 30 years," as Obama claimed. According to the Department of Education, it has actually declined by a third. Eighth-grade scores haven't "fallen" to ninth place compared with other countries. U.S. scores have climbed to that ranking from as low as 28th place in 1995."
