U.S. Continues to Slip in Educational-Attainment Levels, Says Report Comparing OECD Countries

Original Article

Summary goes here!

Well. I am not very excited about the data they used. I question the compatibility of those data. For example, the 91% graduate rate of Japan could very well because of the selectivity of the Japanese higher ed institution. Also the culture difference in the higher ed institution.

The other thing that is more important is that completion rate only mean something if the quality of the graduates are comparable.

So. I would not put a lot of weights on these numbers. I will prefer to guide by our common sense and be truth to ourselves and really try to understand what kind of graduates we produce.
