More reason to worry about American education

The first graph indicates than not only is income inequality greater in the United States than in other developed nations, but that a child's income is more determined here by that of his/her father than in other rich countries. This was once the land of opportunity, but apparently less so now.

The second graph indicates that not only do American school children show up worse than those in other countries on key measures of educational progress, but they are falling behind.
