In a study of 34 developed nations, American students ranked 25th in mathematics, 17th in science and 14th in reading skills. Members of a University of Florida student group called “Gators Can”  say they believe these low rankings point out a serious problem for the country’s education. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Stephanie Bechara reports how these students are trying to solve the issue while spreading awareness.
