We Are the Best

Also, since people seem interested in this topic, I want to add that in my experience with these international graduate students, 100% of them tell me that it is a lot harder to be a student in the US than in their countries. These are all Humanities students. A lot, lot harder because you are expected to work and produce results daily.

They say it’s very intense, tons of readings, a lot of work. The methodology of teaching (which is a course they have to take) is completely different and very demanding. Teaching is a completely different endeavor in the US. One student said, “teaching means something very different than in my country.”

This means our education system is still the best in the world.
