Steve Sailer Quotes Michael Lind on American Education and Offshoring

"The claim that America's K-12 system is inferior to that of other industrial nations is another myth whose purpose is to divert the attention of the American public from the real reasons for the offshoring of U.S. industry" — Michael Lind v. the Sputnik Moment.

Mr. Lind notes that "the countries at the top of the list in 2009 -- Korea, Finland, Hong-Kong China, Singapore, Canada, New Zealand and Japan -- tend to be small or homogeneous or both" and that "overall PISA scores of American students are lowered by the poor results for blacks and Latinos, who make up 35 percent of America's K-12 student population."

Also important is Mr. Lind's suggestion that "American CEOs who offshore production have no right to complain that too few Americans are going into science and engineering," asking, "Why should young Americans commit career suicide by entering occupations that are going to be offshored?"
