How high is American education compared to other countries? | Yahoo Answers

Higher education or k-12 education? Our k-12 (pre-university) system is horrible. Personally, I think this spills over into college/university (really folks, you should leave high school knowing how to write a basic essay, I shouldn't have to teach you how to do it in Anthropology 101), and yet it seems that the American university system in general has an excellent reputation around the world. Unfortunately, I can't find statistics on the actual quality of education at American universities vs. universities anywhere else, I'm just going on what my friends overseas have told me.
