We're Number One! China Can't Compete!

[Editor's note: Fred Reed is a sassy libertarian with loyalties to no one. His sense of humor gets less subtle and easier to discern as the article progresses.]

America again wins the annual International Math Olympiad! The contest pits the brightest high-school students of countries against each other in six-member teams. The American victories continue the mastery by the European cultures that invented most of modern math. This supports the claim (I hope I do not sound racist) that European superiority is genetic. In any event, the outcome is crucial because these young prodigies will shape the future of their peoples for many decades.

Yet another American victory. Will they never end? The 2019 European Girls Math Olympiad. U.S Championship Team: Emma Qin , Ishika Shah, Janabel Xia and Catherine Wu. Meghal Gupta served as team leader and Rachel Zhang as deputy leader.

We should be gratified by America's victories over all other Asian countries.

I for one, don't share that view at all. The education system in the U.S. SUCKS bigtime and is designed solely as a money spinner for the vested groups running them.

The standard of education is mediochre at best. The Chinese students attending, are not there for the education per se, but rather to learn American English and how the Western system works and looks upon China in their dealings. They will return to China, much the wiser in the ways of the Western World and use that knowledge to further their country. I for one, find nothing wrong with that, Western nations have been doing exactly the same thing for centuries. Kudos to the Chinese for taking a page from our book and utilising it to THEIR benefit for a change.
