I'd like to see Mr Gillihan to take those test scores and make a list of the countries that lead the United States. Then, make notation of the economic models of those countries. Which ones provide free primary and secondary education with state-sponsored post-secondary education? Which ones have a centralized education system? Which ones concern themselves with humanism? Then look at which ones concern themselves with teachings of god and religion and the ones which ones have strong private school systems. I think you'll find the ones he support on the bottom.
