US Falls Behind Other Nations In The Global Knowledge Economy, Says 46-Country Report

The United States continues to fall behind internationally in producing a college-educated workforce as other nations send more of their citizens to university. And in the very early years, many countries are now sending a much higher percentage of their kids to preschool than the United States.
