  4. Released: November 5, 2012 “In 2012, for the first time ever, one-third of the nation’s 25- to 29-year-olds have completed at least a bachelor’s degree. These across-the-board increases have occurred despite dramatic immigration-driven changes in the racial and ethnic composition of college-age young adults, a trend that had led some experts to expect a decline in educational attainment. College completion is now at record levels among key demographic groups: men and women; blacks, whites and Hispanics; and foreign-born and native-born Americans.” http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2012/11/05/record-shares-of-young-adults-have-finished-both-high-school-and-college

But internationally …U.S. reading scores on Program for International Student Assessment EDUCATION WEEKPublished in Print: January 12, 2012, as “U.S. Education Pressured by International Comparisons” By Sean Cavanagh “Concern over American students' middling scores on high-profile tests vies with caution about cultural and political factors that shape school improvement …. ”

  12. But wait a minute … http://nasspblogs.org/principaldifference/2010/12/pisa_its_poverty_not_stupid_1.html

  13. Gasp! “A more accurate assessment of the performance of U.S. students would be obtained by comparing the scores of American schools with comparable poverty rates to those of other countries.” “Schools in the United States with less than a 10% poverty rate had a PISA score of 551. When compared to the ten countries with similar poverty numbers, that score ranked first.” http://nasspblogs.org/principaldifference/2010/12/pisa_its_poverty_not_stupid_1.html

  14. <10% poverty Country Poverty Rate PISA Score United States <10% 551 Finland 3.4% 536 Netherlands 9.0% 508 Belgium 6.7% 506 Norway 3.6% 503 Switzerland 6.8% 501 France 7.3% 496 Denmark 2.4% 495 Czech Republic 7.2% 478

  15. 10 – 24.9% poverty

  16. “The problem is not as much with our educational system as it is with our high poverty rates. The real crisis is the level of poverty in too many of our schools and the relationship between poverty and student achievement. Our lowest achieving schools are the most under-resourced schools with the highest number of disadvantaged students. We cannot treat these schools in the same way that we would schools in more advantaged neighborhoods or we will continue to get the same results.” http://nasspblogs.org/principaldifference/2010/12/pisa_its_poverty_not_stupid_1.html
