The best primary and secondary schools in the world are private schools which are usually boarding schools, I don't understand the animosity towards private schools ...

I believe the problem isn't with schools (considering the funding public schools get they should be able to easily afford college level texts) but the problem lies in american students who use so much more yet don't produce results up to match with each asian countries ...

The problem with a lot of private schools in America is their religious bias. They teach children what they want to teach, and the religion often supersedes science. If they don't get enough scientific education, the US will start to lag behind in scientific and technological development.
