Failing Schools?

In an attack on conventional wisdom, Tamim Ansary questions the myth of the failing American school.
So you're left with a circular proposition, it seems. "Failing schools" is the explanation of a national problem. The national problem is finally the proof that the schools are failing. If that correlation is valid, we should see the perceived problems disappearing after school reforms.

Similarly, I wonder how many who are determined to see the failure of "liberal" education will refuse to consider the results of an educated study of the "failure" of liberal education.
