Comment: US Ed system ok, socio-economic disparity bad. (Score 1) 412 412

by felixmeister (#42610281) Attached to: US Educational Scores Not So Abysmal

So what is being done in the US education system has improved the performance of those less fortunate.
But because of a widening socio-economic disparity the overall performance is decreasing.
I think the biggest lesson is to continue the improvements in the Ed system but look towards narrowing the gap between the higher and lower social 'classes'.
