Common Core Results: America's kids got more stupid in reading, math and science while Team Obama was in charge

American school kids became more stupid under the Obama administration, according to rankings released by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

They recently released the results of a worldwide exam administered every three years to 15-year-olds in 72 countries. The exam monitors reading, math and science knowledge.

Based on their findings, the United States saw an 11-point drop in math scores and nearly flat levels for reading and science.

The Land of the Free, Home of the Brave, fell below the OECD average – and failed to crack the top ten in all three categories.

    It's the bright, the curious, the hard-working who matter most to society. They have potential whereas others might not. Those who for whatever just can't excel, no matter the circumstance, should be steered towards a better occupation - prevented from weighing others down.
