    Mostly they try to justify the differences with the different amounts of black students, and when someone points out the accusation's worthlessness, they start crying about how there are many countries in Africa even worse.

    Yes, their last resort is to compare the United States of America to developing countries in Africa. Well, I guess it's kind of comparable?

      Not explicitly defending the trolls — I agree the US school system sucks, particularly how teachers are undervalued — however, the title is misleading. This video is mostly comparing US directly...

      Not explicitly defending the trolls — I agree the US school system sucks, particularly how teachers are undervalued — however, the title is misleading. This video is mostly comparing US directly to Finland, which probably has (depends on your chosen metrics, of course) the best educational system in the world, by far. The entire planet would do well to take a few more pages from Finland's book.

        Yeah I agree, that's why I tagged it with Finland. I wasn't really thinking about changing the title so I didn't.
