Actually, the "discussant" said that the system is failing 30% of the students, not that 30% of the students are failing. And the word "crisis" was attached by you, o'wise one. I know, for someone with your expertise, the difference is so minor it is hardly relevant. Fortunately, it matters for the rest of us.

And when talking about educational systems, I will gladly throw in Sweden... and Holland and Hungary...
