HOPE FOR EDUCATION October 16, 2013 by MeridaGOround Progress cannot remain forever beyond reach. Good is happening right here in Mexico!
Things aren’t going so well up north, according to this report:
“The average literacy score for Americans ages 16 to 65 places the U.S. 18th out of 22 participating countries. In numeracy, the U.S. ranks 20th out of 22. In “problem-solving in technology-rich environments” — a measure of the capacity to interact productively with computers — the U.S. comes in 14th out of 19.
Those results are actually quite good when compared with the performance of adults ages 16 to 24. In literacy, young Americans rank 20th out of 22; in numeracy, 22nd out of 22; and in problem-solving, 19th out of 19.
