The US is being kicked in the groin by China and most other countries. The USA is a joke in Math. I've travelled around and hear the jokes. Why is this? Is it because US Math teachers suck so bad? Or is it because US math students suck so bad? It has to be one or the other, because the US in Math is a world joke.
