The United States has never ranked at the top of international education tests, since we began comparing countries in 1964, yet has been the dominant economic and innovative force in the world the entire time. Despite this fact, a popular annual education report has once again stoked fears of America's impending economic mediocrity with fresh stats on how far the U.S. “lags” behind the world in college attainment, pre-school enrollment, and high school graduation.

The reason for the apparent disconnect is because ..

.... the USA bombed Europe flat in WW2 and were the only remotely industrial power to survive intact throughout the 1950's

There corrected the article for you.

Hardly. Do a little more research, eh? Pretty sure Germany leveled a few bits here and there (London, e.g.). Russia, too. Also, Britain did it's fair share (Dresden: 722 Brit bombers, 522 US, according to the Wikipedia entry). In case you hadn't heard, it was a World War.

But no, the US just came over to Europe and flattened it for no good reason. What's the emoticon for roll eyes again??
