    It was a nice headline, but not what the article stated. They only surveyed 20 countries and about .002% of the world's population.

    Not really a surprise that the smartest countries also happen to be high income low population countries.

    Pretty tough to make people want to improve when 50% of the country gets handouts. All you have to do to graduate high school is show up.

    You guys are all safe. It's Hawk fans and politicians that are dragging everyone down.

    And he used big words and like percentages and stuff in his post, so now I'm really confused.
