Quote of the Day: Lazy American Students

From an op-ed piece in the Boston Globe:
We’ve got a knowledge gap, spurred by a work-ethic gap.
Kara Miller, professor at Babson College.

I think that describes large segments of American society, not just the students. We have a big sense of entitlement coupled with a disdain for personal responsibility.

If you're at all concerned with the decline in performance of American students compared to international students and how that might affect the global marketplace of ideas, then I highly recommend you read the whole essay.
