    No, unfortunately, we don't. In fact, the US is, for all intents and purposes, a country without a functioning public education system, especially at the primary and secondary level. The college picture is a little brighter, but not much. As for your question about "illegals", let me remind you that we currently have an undocumented population of around 12 MILLION people who are already here, and most of them have kids in US schools. We manage okay, but just barely.

    Do we have too many teachers? The answer to that is most definitely NO. There's no money in education unless you're teaching and doing research at the college or university level, and even there, people have to fight for money and resources to be able to do their jobs effectively. Teachers in America have lives that are regulated by a lot of different people- parents, the principals at their schools, the districts they teach in, the state legislatures, the UNIONS that they join, and on and on. Being accountable to all these different stakeholders means that the teachers have precious little time to do anything on their own except follow a preformulated schedule that is set by the district. They "teach to the tests" because they have little choice if they want to keep their jobs. And that's wrong, because it interferes with real learning on the part of the kids in their classes. As long as we continue to use the current educational model, which places so much value on grades and standardized test scores as the prime indicators of student achievement and teacher performance, things aren't going to improve.

    The American education system is the most flawed excuse of a system that has ever been supported by any single government. It is terrible, illogical, and downright broken.

    MOST of the successful and educated individuals in this country are foreign (such as the most successful doctors, specialists, engineers, etc..)

    I was born in America and I am victim of this terrible system and can safely tell you that migrants are better off seeking refuge elsewhere. That being said, America could support them nonetheless, but it would be a miserable existence.

    US has excellent teachers, but the bureaucracy has made them affordable. Teachers are paid very little and supposed to teach in a classroom of 30+ students. Must follow the guidelines that is place for each district. Which only teaches the students for the standardized tests, not teaching to learn, but to indoctrinate them

    Are schools are crap now. Thanks to Obama for the CommonCore. Which teaches kids how to do math the stupid way.

    • cry6 months agoReport

      To be fair, states had the choice whether or not they wanted to adopt common core. Blame your state legislatures for that one

    No. No. Absorbing more illegal immigrants kid into our schools will cost billions.
