Don’t get too down on education systems in the US

You may have noticed that this year’s crop of Nobel Prize awards are again dominated by Americans. With all of the moaning and gnashing of teeth about the public education system, this fact generates responses that show that creative rationalization is also not in short supply.

All we have to do as the adults is make sure the local school systems and Internet institutions are capable of living up to our children’s expanding expectations.
