It’s not that shocking. As GL Piggy says: “No, you won’t [be shocked] if you understand two things:  that American students’ test scores are low-balled in Chicken Little fashion in order to make it seem like more spending is needed on state-run education, and if you understand that since America is the most culturally and racially diverse of the OECD nations that its students’ scores will have high variance and a mediocre average.” Gucci Little Piggy
