A new study out today, commissioned by Intel, finds 85 percent of U.S. teens are confident in their math and science abilities, even though the United States lags behind many other countries in those areas. That said, about 90 percent of U.S. students ultimately declined to name their own country as the world leader in math or science - suggesting a disconnect between students’ faith in their own abilities and their thoughts about the country at large.
Broken down, Intel found teens didn’t attribute those shortcomings to a lack of resources, as some educators might argue. Rather, most students (51 percent) said it was because “we don’t work as hard as other countries.” Still, roughly 99 percent of teens across demographics recognize those subjects as somewhat or very important, suggesting it isn’t necessarily apathy keeping U.S. teens from performing as well as they should."
