The collapse of public education

This blog post from the 21st Century Fluency Project came across my desktop.   The infographic is interesting.  It certainly paints a bleak picture of the state of education these days and provokes some thought.  I thought the section comparing public vs. private school was overly simplistic, generalized, and vague.  It did though spur thinking about what qualities of a school matter and make a difference.  Also, what struck me was that private school graduation rates are much higher (not surprising) but the percentage of kids that continue on to a four-year degree isn’t significantly higher than the percentage of public school graduates.  What do you take away from the infographic?
