- Of the world’s richest nations, the US has the most children (15%) living in poverty.
- Of the OECD nations, the US has the most people in prison – as a percentage and in absolute numbers.
- 25% of 15-year-old students performed at or below the lowest level in an international maths test – worse than Canada, France, Germany and Japan.
- If the US infant mortality rate were equal to first-ranked Sweden, more than 20,000 babies would survive beyond their first year of life.
Eye opening stuff. The interesting thing for me is that I didn’t find any articles at CNN or the New York Times about this report.
