Interesting how the left loves to use statistics such as these to argue that American health care needs reform, but ignores these types of statistics when it comes to one of their own sacred cows - education spending, (not to mention teachers unions).

The U.S. does not achieve 99% literacy rate with its students.
WOW!! The first two posts after the article set the sides. Absolutely unbelievable. Even so, I don’t believe this this study. The US appears almost competitive in some areas, and that’s ridiculous.

The striking public school teachers in Chicago earn $74,839 per year and they get summer off.
The U.S. Department of Education reports that 79% of Chicago eighth are graders not grade-level proficient in reading, and 80% are not grade-level proficient in math.
Chicagos charter schools are still open because their teachers are not on strike.
39% of Chicagos striking public school teachers send their own children to private schools.

How sad that he condemns the rest of his race to such a disastrous system, just for political gain.
