The shoe is on the other foot now because other countries are beginning to take a reciprocal dim view of American degrees and credentials. Other countries are now demanding that American Universities measure up to European, Chinese, Japanese, Indian or other National Standard of Excellence.
The International Community has become aware of the fact that some of the largest Universities in America use graduate students as teaching assistants to teach required courses.
The grading of papers and evaluation of student progress by Teaching Assistants instead of Professors is also an indication of a poor quality education.
Some graduates of American Universities do not do well in Graduate Schools outside of America.
International Trade, Cultural and Science Exchanges have burst the mystique bubble, among the more educated in the world, that "American Education is always better."
The time has come for Americans and all of the Nations of the World to appreciate what is best among their Education Systems and to Learn from each other. Professionals in the Education Community share a love of Learning and demand Excellence from students. Each Nation should Trust that Education Professionals in other countries have provided Degrees only after proper preparation and demonstration of knowledge by the student. Degrees should be accepted as equivalent among countries unless there is a reasonable evidence of corruption or abuses within the system.
