It's time that we take a hard look at the state of education in America. How many of our kids graduate from high school? How well do they perform on standardized tests? How much do we pay our teachers? In taking the pulse of our country's education system—all the way from kindergarten to college—and comparing it to how other countries perform, we see not only where we rank internationally, but crucial ways to repair our system here at home. Because if a nation is only as great as it's lowest performing kids, we've still got a ways to go.
