Numeracy test scores of tertiary graduates and teachers S

Source: OECD Education Today
U.S. teachers (red) rank rather low among developed nations in numeracy, but so do college graduates  (grey).  In the United States, a significant portion of college graduates score below 275 in the PISA math test and the line does not reach a score of 325; contrast that with the countries shown at the top of the graph.

Part of our problem is that too many of our students get a poor education, but a part is also that we are not producing an adequate number of students with really strong quantitative skills.
