A country that leads the world in educating its people.

from President Barack Obama – State Of The Union 2012 on Rap Genius


The United States—though once a global leader in education—has slipped in relation to its peer nations

Despite Mos Def’s best efforts, the US doesn’t even show up among the top 25 in mathematics

In higher education, though, the U.S. still dominates, holding about ½ of the spots in a ranking of the world’s top universities
