Is Our Schools Failing?

Chad Orzel has a great post on the "declining" public education system. Basically, the furor over our poorly-performing schools has always been around, or at least has been around since the 1870's. Like pretty much every hysterical, over-hyped fear, this one is generational, just always around (declining morality of the youth is another).

That's not to say that we don't have problems that need to be addressed, serious ones at that, as Chad points out. But we can probably stop worrying about how we test against other countries, and start worrying about the scores of other problems we face.

Anyway, go read his post, he says it all as well as I ever could.
