    We shouldn't be dumbing down our schools

    I say full steam ahead for our smart kids

    No geniuses left behind instead of no child left behind

    Hard work always leads to results.

    You mean chinese children from the select regions that China handpicked.

    Let them do the PISA testings in the rural regions of China to see whats actually going on.

    This is the thing. We educate everyone and test everyone... not an even playing field numerically.

    True, the US is one of the few developed countries who dont juke the stats when it comes to pisa testing.

    Even Canada stays the hell away from native and poor districts

    @Rod1 said what I was going to say.

    China never tests their entire population so the results are pretty much meaningless. Not to mention that their education system doesn't even educate the entire population. By 15, if you're not academically gifted in China, you're probably not still in school. Why would I say that? Because after age 15, you have to pay a fee to continue getting an education. So there's no compelling reason for those without talent to continue in a system that will force them to pay for the privilege. I would bet good money that they have a significant dropout rate (not that we'd ever see the data).

    China's education numbers, like so many things there, are smoke and mirrors.

    So you think it's a coincidence that Chinese people in the US are also at the top of the education heap?

    The ones at the top of the education heap are Indian-Americans, how did India fared on PISA?

    I never said they would do bad, just that they skew their results a lot, also math isnt the only thing PISA tests, reading and science matter too.

    First, do you know for a fact that all those Asian dudes are of Chinese descent?

    Second, imagine how proud that ginger was to have measured up to Asian math standards. :)

    Singapore is still the smartest followed by Japan and S Korea for all the reasons Pan said. China gets away with picking what schools to pick.
