"I don't think most people have an idea how poorly educated Americans are, how far behind they are compared to their age mates in other developed (and even developing) countries, how phenomenally undisciplined they are, and how much it matters."
This is so true. If an American parent could spend a day in an average Western European classroom, they would be stunned at the advanced rigorous work kids do. A lot of Americans assume that kids of a certain age aren't capable of doing the kinds of work that millions of their peers around the world easily do.
