As I keep pointing out, there is no one system in the U.S. The entities
that have jurisdiction over school curriculum and teaching methods are
local, often smaller than a city (though sometimes coterminous with it)
or even a rural entity. Furthermore, no national statistics are kept,
so nobody can have more than an impressionistic and anecdotal view,
usually with heavy first-person bias, about what the total system is like.
Even the standardized tests are not the same everywhere, with the exception
of the widely used (but entirely unofficial) college entrance examinations.
