A report this week that American students are lagging behind their top international peers in math, reading and science should give pause to those who argue that the nation's school reform efforts are going too far and too fast.

A report this week that American students are lagging behind their top international peers in math, reading and science should give pause to those who argue that the nation's school reform efforts are going too far and too fast. In fact, they suggest just the opposite: The, at best, middling scores of American 15-year-olds not only challenge the notion of American "exceptionalism," they also threaten over time to erode the educational foundations of the world's largest economy and its global political and military influence. The Program for International Student Assessment, which measures academic achievement in 65 of the world's wealthiest countries, found that students in the U.S. were outpaced by their peers elsewhere in all three subjects tested. Students in 29 countries or educational systems scored higher in math, while those in 22 countries did better in science, and 19 countries did better in reading. The PISA exam put students from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and South Korea at the top of its rankings, while several countries comparable to the U.S., including Ireland and Poland, pulled ahead for the first time. Meanwhile, American students did only about as well on the test as they did the last time it was administered, in 2009. Optimists might take that to mean that the U.S. is at least holding its own in the global educational competition, but the reality is that America is standing still while other countries forge ahead. And in a rapidly evolving global marketplace, standing still year after year is the same as falling behind. Please: Like, Share and Subscribe ...Thanks!!! Credit:Fox News More

The war against ISIS isn’t going so great, with the self-appointed terror group standing up to a year of U.S. airstrikes in Syria and Iraq. But that hasn’t kept defense contractors from doing rather well amidst the fighting. Lockheed Martin has received orders for thousands of more Hellfire missiles. AM General is busy supplying Iraq with 160 American-built Humvee vehicles, while General Dynamics is selling the country millions of dollars worth of tank ammunition...

Meet the 0.01 Percent: War Profiteers

Help give your local Occupy group the tools they need to fight corporate power by sharing our new video with them... Help give your local Occupy group the tools they need to fight corporate power by sharing our new video with them and posting it on your social networks: http://warcosts.com/1percent War industry CEOs make tens of millions of dollars a year, putting them in the top 0.01 percent of income earners in the U.S. • Northrop Grumman CEO Wes Bush made $22.84 million last year. • Lockheed Martin CEO Robert Stevens made $21.89 million. • Boeing CEO James McNerney: $19.4 million. These guys use their corporations' massive lobbying dollars to keep their job-killing gravy train rolling. Last year, their companies spent a whopping $46 million on lobbying, corrupting our politics and ensuring that their bank accounts continue to fatten at our expense. These executives are some of the main reasons why we're wasting so much on war instead of rebuilding our own nation here at home. Help us fight their propaganda campaign to protect their profits. Use our list to share this video with your local Occupy group and encourage them to show it at their events: http://warcosts.com/1percent CORRECTION: Lockheed Martin's CEO is Robert Stevens. The video refers to him as "Martin Stevens" which is incorrect. More
