A Brit looks at U.S. test scores

By

Harry Hutton, my favorite British blogger, who's done incredible work on the real situation in Colombia, seems to be spending time in the States lately and blogging about all he sees here. He notes that the states with the lowest test scores also seem to be the most economically dynamic — while places like Germany, where test scores are stellar, are languishing in stagnation. What's with that? Is are high test scores all they're cracked up to be? Harry's perspective on statistics about U.S. education is light—hearted and refreshing.
