I don't think "jail" is the appropriate institution for solving problems, though I realize "putting people in jail" is a favored form of revenge.
Many commentators, including on math teach, have an attitude of vengeance.
Unlike Paul, I don't accept the current crop of tests as measures of what I most care about, so when it comes to "how well are Americans or Finlanders doing?", I'm not necessarily going to run to a book of PISA scores to find out.
I have my own sense of standards and what's acceptable. Most adults get failing grades, not because they're failures but because they are products of obsolete schooling systems. Anyway, you go with the army you've got.
