Is the American Higher Education System the Best in the World?

USA Today has an article today about a new report, comparing the American higher education system with its counterparts in other parts of the world. It draws alarming conclusions from the disparity between the number of college graduates in the 25-34 age bracket, vs. 35-64 year olds. In the 35-64 range, the US has the highest percentage worldwide of college grads. In the 25-34 range, we're #7.

They suggest that a major culprit though perhaps not the only one) is affordability of a college education.
