U.S. slipping in education

Dear Editor:

It would seem that all Americans would want our youth to be as highly educated as possible. The U.S has fallen to “Average” in international rankings, as released by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, with typical scores of 500 on a scale of 1,000: 487 in math, 500 in reading and 502 in science.

Studies also found that in terms of political affiliation, the higher the education level, the more likely the student would be “liberal” as opposed to “conservative.” With education, it appears, comes illumination, which greatly explains why our Tea Party conservatives, having infiltrated Congress, are so intent on doubling student loans interest rates from 3.4 to 6.8 percent.

The last thing their cause could withstand is to be diluted by introducing intelligence.

Sincerely,

Nicholas Zizelis

Do you think Congress should raise interest rates on student loans?
