DeVos in at Department of Education Maybe we can get out of 36th Place in Math; 18th Place in Science, and 14th Place in reading

I'm not sure how it can be done but obviously it hasn't worked so far.
Average scores in math have been on the decline since 2009, and scores in reading and science have been flat during that same time period.
Across the globe, American students were outperformed by their counterparts in 36 countries in math; 18 countries in science and 14 countries in reading.
I blame stupid Common Core but whatever the Obama people were doing it was not good enough. America should be at least in the top 10 in all of these scores and hopefully DeVos can get us there. If she can somehow scoop the top 10% out of these failing schools and give them the same choice that the Obama's gave their kids then it would be mission accomplished.
