It's pretty amazing that so many people believe that Americans are stupid or uneducated. It seems that anti-American idiots, both American and non-American alike tend to use a claim that they are apparently unaware is completely and utterly false.
-----Here's a little information for you all-----
1) The US has the highest education attainment out of any major industrialized nation. Americans are more likely to receive higher education than Britons, Canadians, Finns, Germans, Italians etc... Take a look at page 42 of this PDF:
2) The US dominates in academic performance. So not only does the US get more of its population into higher education, but the education they receive is the best in the world, and results in vastly superior academic performance in all broad subject fields when ranked among world universities:
Natural Science and Mathematics:
Engineering, Technology and Computer Science:
Life and Agriculture Sciences:
Medicine and Pharmacy:
Feel free to link to this the next time someone on LL says America is filled with idiots.
