“The American Education Diet: Can U.S. Students Survive On Junk Food?” is available from the Center for Education Reform.

Even though it spends an average of $11,000 per student, the United States’ educational system fails to produce students who can compete globally, concludes a report.

The report by the Center for Education Reform in Washington says U.S. students’ deficiency in mathematics, science, reading, language, history, and cultural studies is well documented in a number of assessments, including the Program for International Student Assessment, the National Assessment of Educational Progress, and state standardized tests.
