PARENTS are lead to believe their kids are reading and doing math at grade level when this is not true.

Nightmare IT'S A NIGHT MARE 90% OF PARENTS ARE WRONG!
Parents should ask the teacher if their child is doing well in the classroom and take a positive answer to mean the child’s performance is grade level. Parents, no matter their income or education level, race or ethnicity, ask the wrong question.

They need to ask if their child’s math and reading are at GRADE LEVEL to learn the truth.

The high school graduation rate is over 80%, and fewer than 2% of students are held back a grade. Parents can't be blamed for thinking their own kids are doing well, when they are on par with their peers. America's children graduate without high school level skills. It's a nightmare.

Half of the white students are on grade level in math and reading by fourth grade; the percentages are lower for African-Americans and Hispanics.

Higher education in America is a racket.
The U.S. system of higher education isn’t the main source of economic inequality in America and making things worse.
A big part of the problem is the avalanche of standardized tests students take from kindergarten through high school, a $10 billion industry that drives much of what’s taught in the classroom. At the top of the pyramid sit the SAT and ACT, the generations-old multiple-choice tests that still help to determine who gains entry to top colleges and universities. The SAT is easily manipulated.

Creating standards that force schools to prioritize teaching students how to think for themselves.
Project Based Learning changing the default settings of the education-to-employment system so that it works better for all kids.” Game-based tests that measure prospective employees’ decision-making, adaptability, and critical thinking
The campuses of elite colleges remain disproportionately populated by the rich. At selective universities—ones that admit fewer than half of applicants—3 out of 4 students come from the richest quartile of families. According to Opportunity Insights, a research group led by Harvard economist Raj Chetty, children from families in the top 1 percent of income distribution are 77 times more likely to attend an Ivy-plus school—Ivy League plus Duke, MIT, Stanford, and the University of Chicago—than those from the bottom 20 percent. 
In 2018 more than 2 million students took the SAT and 1.9 million took the ACT. Kantar argues that these standardized tests exacerbate inequality in two ways. Most obviously, they give an advantage to wealthier students who can pay for tutoring and test-preparation courses—or for fake scores, as was the case in Operation Varsity Blues. The other effect is more pernicious. At least as early as high school, classroom instruction is geared to boost kids’ performance on college-admissions tests. But those tests measure what students already know, not the qualities employers and economists say they need to thrive in the future: problem-solving, critical reasoning, collaboration, creativity, empathy.

As the Economist tells us, new research suggests that persistence and determination “grit” – often count for just as much as natural intelligence when it comes to success in life.
