To put it another way, this "explosion" shines a revealing light on the dishonesty of The Education Mafia. That they are playing at something is perfectly clear. Just exactly what they are playing at can be debated. >
This is false since not only does this "mafia" not exist, but, as evidenced by what the cited article itself says, it is parental pressure that has and still is dictating things here.

in which I show, among other things, that via a link containing vast amounts of documentation that Haim's prior claims are wrong when he claims that US public school math education has collapse is utterly false, that the opposite is the case, Haim is above talking about my references to the Scandinavian countries, especially Norway, how each one of their per-capita nominal GDPs have for every one one of or almost every one one of (depending on the country) the past few decades been larger than and growing faster than that of the US, and how, according to the ongoing studies of which countries are best to live in terms of which ones have the highest levels of happiness according to the measurements of the studies, these Scandinavian countries, especially Norway, top the entire world. (Norway's per-capita nominal GDP is now around around $100,000 while that of the US is only a little under $50,000. The Norwegian economy is now roughly twice as large as the US economy, adjusted for population.) See
