2011年GCT考试英语模拟试题(六)

and this week sees still another indictment of U.S. education: New details on how thousands of 12th graders in selected countries did on a 1982 algebra test given by the International Association for Evaluation of Educational Achievement. Hong Kong ranked first, barely ahead of Japan. The U.S. Finished 14th among the 15 countries, just ahead of Thailand, just behind Hungary. In a United Nations survey of what students in nine countries know about foreign cultures, the U.S. comes in next to last. One test of American 12-year-olds shows 20 percent unable to locate even their own nation on a world map.“Our students lag behind, and it doesn‘t bode well for our country,”says Herbert Walberg, a comparative-education expert for the University of Illinois in Chicago.“Fifty-five percent of America’s jobs involve information processing. If we don‘t have good, solid skills in language, geography, math and science, we’ll be at a severe disadvantage.”
