Our public education system is excellent. Steve Sailer analyzed a couple of years ago that we educate our whites better than almost any other white country, our Asians better than any Asian country, our Latinos better than any Latino country, and our blacks better than any black country. It’s just outrageously expensive because the marginal costs of it go to educating the uneducable.
Well let’s give credit where it’s due anyway. Sailer is virtually a Republican Party operative at this point, but I guess he is willing to buck the Republican National Committee on a few things. The RNC holds that the US public education system an outrageous failure, but as Sailer shows, it may well be the best on the face of the Earth instead! I worked in public education for six years as a substitute teacher, and I can tell you, they really put us through the grinder. See this post for more on that.
