U.S. High School Students Suck at Math; on Par With...Hungary?

So, it's that time of year again for U.S. high school students to suck eggs in international math scores. But, this paragraph flattened me:

Among 29 industrialized countries, the United States scored below 20 nations and above five in math. The U.S. performance was about the same as Poland, Hungary and Spain.

What's wrong with that picture? Is it the mold in the paprika? Has McDonald's and mall culture just warped those once-promising little minds? Erdös and von Neumann are turning in their graves. Guardian reports.
