In a previous article attempting to ‘put Americans back in their place,’ so to speak, Rogue Media Labs explained how, at the present moment in time, “the United States ranks 115th among 200 countries in terms of linguistic diversity, 20th in math and 27th in science. On top of this, out of 40 countries ranked based off their colleges or secondary educational systems, the United States ranks 20th in the world.” Additionally, “according to our own ACT testing agency, it’s now estimated that 76% of all high school students are unprepared to enter into college level courses upon graduating high school.”
This aside however, a new international study conducted by researchers at Stanford University and UC – Berkley an published by the International DOI Foundation (IDF) last week, the scores of senior level graduates from US based secondary institutions within the fields of Computer Science outperform those from all other world leaders, including China, Russia and India. Interestingly enough, the researchers do not attribute our test scores to income or wealth, but rather based on the fact the the US “has a large population of high scoring international students” – essentially on account of the countries ethnic diversity.
