Are American Kids Stupid?

Looking at the poor performance of American students on international comparisons such as the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), you might think “Are American kids just stupid?”

Not exactly. It turns out, however, that there’s a lot of stupidity in the way that we handle K-12 education. That’s the contention of John Stoessel’s report Stupid in America. The report aired on ABC’s 20/20 early this year. It’s going to be rebroadcast this Friday, 10 p.m. Eastern.

Program your VCR or TiVO if you can’t watch it live. It’s great TV.
