Well here we go, the latest Harvard conclusion by one of its esteemed professors is that America isn’t attracting the best and brightest from around the world! I say oh well. Whatever happened to the Best and brightest American born students?Let’s see if I can follow the logic here. Based on his premise the majority of the best and brightest come from overseas number one. We open our universities to the foreign student(taking the place of an American student by the way). We educate them(because the best and brightest are not teaching in their own universities)  and then we HOPE that they stay here in the US and open a business but in many(and rapidly growing) instances they return home with our OUR technology that they learned HERE and proceed to take INNOVATION and JOBS with them. Am I understanding this correctly?  It seems to me that we taught the Japanese how to beat us at our own game thru the 60’s 70’s and 80’s Then the Korean’s and Singaporen’s 90’s  then the Chinese currently and next stop India and Brazil. Now if the best and brightest are coming from overseas and they are learning from us and turning around and using the knowledge they gained from us to beat us in the world economy is there something not flawed in that logic. Hmm sounds like maybe our educational system is flawed and all the dumbing down needs to end or possibly we are still the brightest and the best even though those lovely education validating test scores have slipped and dropped our world ranking.  Remember we need to cultivate Homegrown talent,we need to educate our children first Not the children of the world and we need to get back to making things in this country not just servicing things.  Americans are the Best and Brightest!!!
