Jump to: navigation, search
Former good article Education in the United States was one of the Social sciences and society good articles, but it has been removed from the list. There are suggestions below for improving the article to meet the good article criteria. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

Education index of 99.9[edit]

"The United Nations assigned an Education Index of 99.9 to the United States, ranking it number 1 in the world, a position it shares with about 20 other nations.[1]"

- not true, at least not true according to the link given to support this claim. Education index for the US is 0.97 (which is a good result, but not number 1 in the world).

I remove this statement until valid evidence is provided. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.29.87.54 (talk) 06:39, 28 May 2007‎ (UTC)

Issues[edit]

I would suggest adding information under curriculum issues information on the achievement gap and English language learners. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 155.104.239.13 (talk) 13:31, 18 January 2005‎ (UTC)

Headings and ordering[edit]

I have reworked to headings into a structure which should be clear, and have done a small amount of reordering (to keep K-12 funding with K-12 etc). I haven't added to removed any content. PeterEastern (talk)

Mandatory contribution[edit]

Hello, I am required to leave some form of critique on an article for one of my college classes. My only contribution I can really give is under history for this article it seems that there are quite a bit of citations throughout that section that need to be put in there. There are a lot of statistics that are simply not backed up by a source or where they came from. Thanks for your time! Beckacolebank (talk) 02:51, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
