American education is only slipping when you look at the system as a whole. It works fine in the wealthy areas that get the highest funding and best teachers. It is the lower class, poorer school systems that have smaller budgets and parents who are not active in there children's' educations that bring down the curve. If we had equal quality of education for all our countries children we would excel on the world front.
