Toodles!

If I become a moderator I will hand type every piece of socialist literature that strikes my fancy to share.

Socialists love to share.

which works beautifully when you have insanely high taxes (which causes people to either work less or commit themselves to tax fraud on a nation wide scale)

Mediocrity is the socialist ideal. Take your free cheese from nanny. But don't try to do better for yourself, don't bother we'll take it from you to pass out as we see fit anyway. Hard work , good ideas and drive are of no use.

Given the state of the American education system, it would appear that mediocre achievement is the American Dream. Or, at least, the best they can hope for.

but that's only because it's state run, smug. if only it was run by the omnipotent private sector, oh, what wonderful wonders would it promptly materialize.

Private schools don't can be more selective about whom they take, though.

In the UK, private schools are certainly better than state schools, but they cost a damn site more (way more, quite often).

you are citing past figures, not future. you see when the level of excellence in the education system declines, it affects future results, not past.
