According to a report at cnycentral.com, "The global exam, which was given to 15-year-olds around the world, is considered the worldwide benchmark for education ranking by country.
The report reveals that, "U.S. performance was extremely low, doing average in reading and science and well below average in math. We failed to reach the top 20 in any of the subjects tested. America fell notably below the United Kingdom and well behind most of our Asian counterparts."
"Education Secretary Arne Duncan calls America's performance education stagnation. Duncan says average scores in the U.S. are dragged down by a large number of poor minority students."* (our emphasis).
David Horowitz is the founder and current president of the conservative 'think factory,' Freedom Center, and editor at FrontPage Magazine.
Horowitz also founded the organization Students for Academic Freedom, whose self-stated goal is combating what it calls the "leftist indoctrination" in academia.**
His new focus of attention is an organization called "Go For the Heart." Breitbart.com describes "Go For the Heart’s first offering, a sixty second web spot called "Atrocity,” and declares the presentation, "pulls no punches in an attempt to focus the tragedy of failing public schools on those he sees as responsible for the ongoing and dismal failures of these schools: Democrats and the Teachers Unions that support them."
