No idea personally, however the Americans spend almost double per primary-school pupil than the British do:
In spite of this, Brits rank 12th on world rankings by IQ as opposed to the United States which ranks 19th:

Having the experience of both, I'd say for the basics; such as Maths, Sciences, English etc, America is far better.
(Maybe it was the schools I went to idk; but I went to good schools both in the States and in England tbh)
The American system seemed far more advanced and capable of teaching children efficiently. However things like geography and R.E were severely lacking, which probably is one of the many reasons why Americans can be so ignorant at times.
I think it's also cultural though. American children don't seem to interrupt class or mess around nearly as much as children do (that I've seen) in Britain.
However if you're asking about University then I really wouldn't know. But people tend to prefer going to Britain in order to gain qualifications.Last edited by Horatio-; 26-12-2010 at 04:04.

Having been to both I think they both have strong points.
America is better when it comes to doing projects/building charisma etc, but I think the British system is better for covering the essential foundations.
Also, I'd have to agree about the whole 'American children don't mess around as much' thing.
I think they're about the same in terms of unis though.Last edited by No Man; 26-12-2010 at 17:11.
