"Here's what everybody knows about education in the United States. It's broken. It's failing our poorest students and codding the richest. Americans are falling desperately behind the rest of the developed world.

But here's what a new study from the Economic Policy Institute tells us about America's education system: Every one of those common assumptions is simplistic, misguided, or downright wrong."*

We've heard it all from pundits before, "America's public schools are failing." But are they really? New data from a Stanford University study shed light on advantaged and disadvantaged students, explaining a big point that's been overlooked. David Sirota breaks it down.
