    Interesting that America has pushed to once again create another “Silver Bullet” that will miraculously cure all and make all their students outstanding performers. This is akin to taking a diet pill, but not changing your diet.

    When are Americans going to learn that there aren’t any really easier ways to learn but to get in there and do it? I’ve taught at least 500 American students and by and large most show an alarming trend towards not being prepared to compete at a world class university against peers from “lesser countries”.

    So go for it America! Draw a line in the sand and continue on your exciting path towards being a second rate world power.
