Note from webmaster: We are 27th in Healthcare and 37th in Education.
- The US now ranks 27th in the world for its levels of healthcare and education, according to a new study.
- This represents a significant decline from 1990, when it ranked sixth.
- The nation has seen a marked decrease in educational attainment — partly the result of reduced and poorly allocated funds for elementary and high schools.
- By improving its education and healthcare policies, the US could see faster economic growth.
