Study Compares U.S. Education With Other Countries 

A new study by American Institutes of Research has found that American students outperform their counterparts in many countries in math and science according to Sam Dillon of the New York Times. The negative part of the findings is that the U.S. is not keeping up with kids in Asia.
"In this case, the bad news trumps the good because our Asian economic competitors are winning the race to prepare students in math and science," said the study’s author, Gary W. Phillips.
The study looked at the standardized test scores of 8th graders in 45 countries and in all 50 states.
