Newsweek and Washington Post contributing editor Robert Samuelson's latest opinion piece notes the good and bad news from the 2010 Statistical Abstract of the United States. Listed among the bad news he culls from the expansive report, Samuelson notes, "Since 1970, the student-teacher ratio in schools has declined dramatically, from 22-1 to 15-1 in 2007, with little effect on test results." Another interesting statistic revealed in the report: "Almost one-quarter of elementary and high school students are immigrants or have immigrant parents."

Examine the full 2010 Statistical Abstract.
