USA president Barack Obama today warned the Americans about the decreasing Educational standards and emphasizing them to improve it cause indians and chinese are really coming hard on them. Obama in his speech particularly looked concerned with the falling Educational standards of his country.
Obama said “it was used to be head and shoulders difference between USA and other countries, but it is not anymore. We are someway around middle of it”
“While our kids play video games more, Indians and Chinese kids spend more time in school learning things very fastly. The Chinese, the Indians are coming at us and they are coming at us very hard, they are hungry, focused and really buckling down at us” Obama added.
He questioned that , Once America used to provide high number of college graduates, then why its standards in education fallen?
The US had ‘kind of settled into mediocrity when we compare ourselves to other advanced countries and wealthy countries,’ he said. ‘That’s a problem because the reason that America over the last hundred years has consistently been the wealthiest nation is because we’ve also been the most educated nation.’
‘It used to be by a pretty sizable factor we had the highest high school graduation rates, we had the highest college graduation rates, we had the highest number of Ph.D.s, the highest number of engineers and scientists,’ Obama said.
But now the Ph.D.s, engineers and scientist level is no longer more when compared to other countries and finally he appealed the students to concentrate more on studies then video games.
