Vietnam Outflanks America in Test Scores

Third world students in Vietnam are now outperforming American students with a fraction of the funds.

The numbers

The OCED ranks countries by student test scores every year. In 2015 Vietnam scored 17th in math, 8th in science, 19th in reading which is higher than the United States which was ranked 36th at math, 28th at science, 23rd at reading. Overall Vietnam made 12th place while the US ranked 28th.

[sarcasm]Just another example of how good our government is at running education. [/sarcasm]

Stated reasons

Business insider cites a few reasons for the achievement gap

A lot of the cultural differences had to do with student characteristics. In general, Vietnamese students were more focused and took their schoolwork more seriously. They were less likely to be late for school, had fewer unexcused absences, and skipped fewer classes. They spend about three more hours per week studying outside of school than students in other developing countries. They’re less anxious about math, and more confident about how they’re going to use it in the future.

There are more differences. Parents in Vietnam were more likely to be involved in their children’s academic lives, and help out or fundraise at the school. Structurally, the education system is more centralized. Teachers are less autonomous — their performance is monitored more, and there’s a higher emphasis on student achievement than in other developing nations. source: Business Insider

More money isn’t the answer

While I personally agree with the general Asian cultural emphasis on education I also blame the parental disconnect in education on government schools.

For years liberals have said the solution is to throw more money at the problem. ‘Give teachers more money’ ‘protect teachers from being fired’ ‘have bloated bureaucracies that waste tax payer dollars  and that everyone hates including teachers’.

Lets see how well that has worked.

And you may not know it, my friends, but it is estimated that we spend $500,000 to kill each enemy soldier, while we spend only fifty-three dollars for each person classified as poor, and much of that fifty-three dollars goes for salaries to people that are not poor. So I was increasingly compelled to see the war as an enemy of the poor, and attack it as such.

-Dr. Martin Luther King

In that very ironic speech opposing the Vietnam War Dr. Martin Luther King realized that the government ‘war on poverty’ was a farce and a swindling of the taxpayers. We  spend more and more money on schools which leads to more or less the same or slightly worse results. The silicon valley tech industry is sustained by immigrants from Asia. California spends 40% of its budget on education every single year yet 90% of its students are not qualified to do the jobs in its single largest industry.

Conservatives have ideas and solutions that work! Vouchers have been proven to increase test scores.  According to the liberal Brookings Institute:

The researchers determined that African-American students who used a voucher to switch from public to private school scored 6.3 National Percentile Ranks higher on a combined reading/math standardized test than did comparable African-American students who remained in public school. The evaluation took place after the voucher users had been in private school for two years.

The teacher’s unions will try to say that its because parents that put their children  in private schools are more involved in their child’s educational lives. For the answer to that we continue to read their findings:

The study employed a rigorous randomized field trial research design, where voucher winners were determined by a lottery, in order to control for the motivation and value of education held by both the private school and the public school participants in the experiments.

Nope sorry you can’t blame good parents. We have only badly run government schools to blame. in fact the Liberals continue to advocate for policies that hurt African Americans the most.

We need to get rid of government schools entirely. If we don’t it won’t just be Black students that will suffer the consequences.

All American students and American citizens as evidenced above are not just hurt but getting blown out of the water by their counter parts in not just Vietnam but Singapore, Canada, and even western Europe.

Islamic Group Uses Children As Bombs

Boko Haram Used 83 Children as Bombs This Year

Boko Haram (education is forbidden) has used 83 children as bombs so far this year. This according to the United Nations Children’s Fund.  “Eighty-three children have been used as “human bombs” since the start of 2017. Fifty-five were girls, and 27 were boys, UNICEF said. In once instance, a baby was also strapped to a girl. ”

Traditionally Islamic terror groups have used young men as their vehicle to deliver explosives. Now, however, people tend to be watchful of young men so increasingly the groups have turned to innocent children as their weapons of choice.  This particular group seems to specialize in using children for their purposes. Young girls are often kidnapped by Boko Haram and turned into sex slaves while the young boys are converted into child soldiers.  As a result of this many people are now fearful of the young if they escape their captors.

As a result of its offensive, the terrorist group has displaced over 2.3 million people since May 2013, making it one of the fastest growing displacement crises in Africa. The number of displaced children increased 60 percent over the last year, from 800,000 to 1.3 million children.

More than 670,000 of those children are no longer in school. More than 1,500 schools have closed after being attacked, looted, set on fire or used as shelter by displaced people.

The United Nations says that Boko Haram may have arisen as a result of extreme poverty and famine in the region. Nigeria and several other countries in Africa are facing food shortages due in part to government mismanagement of resources.
