I like to know why people think what they think. You'll notice I never said you were wrong...
So other countries score better on a test(s). So what? I don't mean that sarcastically either. Why does that matter?
Do you know how many times I've used Algebra since I first took Algebra 1 my freshman year of high school (2001). One time and that was to prepare for, wait for it, a test. Geometry? Zero times. Trigonometry? Zero times.
They weren't in both at the same time. They couldn't possibly be bias either. Maybe they switched from a very good school to a poor one or vice versa.

How many business' only offer two weeks? I've never worked for anyone that offers less than 3 and usually it's 4 after the first year. I don't' know anyone that has less than 3 weeks paid vacation, plus sick days, plus 8 or so federal holidays.
Anyway, teachers get 3 months off plus at least 2 weeks vacation plus federal holidays plus inclement weather days.
Ya, I googled it.
