Its not always the high ranking private schools that produce the intellects, although the better ones do hire the best and brightest, and offer more courses (but that what you pay for).
You can compare a lazy kid from Harvard, to a hard working intellect from U Mass, and I'd hire the hard worker. Its not the Diploma, its who is holding it.
America is still the best:) Just give us a few more years of meddling through every child left behind and common core and we'll be as mindless as the rest of the world.
Okay I get it we have lousy test scores for Math and Science at the elementary, middle school and high school; but 7 out of 10 best universities in the world. Must be all of the student body at these schools are from elsewhere because our students are so poorly prepared they can't get in.
What a crock... every time I hear about how poorly US students do on standardized testing compared to the rest of the world I want to puke. Anyone who reports that type of data know they are comparing apples to oranges. The rest of the world does not educate every child, and those children in trade schools do not take the tests.
I'm not sure how much i agree with this list. So many of the world's top engineers come from the IIT schools in india. They might not have the same budget as MIT but they've got the brain power to make up for it.
