A new exam given to 15-year-olds around the world found American students scores were average in science and reading and below average in math. What's also troubling is America saw little or no gains in the last decade while other countries raced ahead. Anderson discussed what all of this means with Fareed Zakaria, host of Fareed Zakaria GPS and Amanda Ripley, author of "The Smartest Kids in the World–and How They Got That Way."
David Gergen, Charles Blow, CNN’s Newt Gingrich and Fareed Zakaria discuss the nature of a potential U.S. strike in Syria.
Watch the rest of the conversation here:
Critics pounced on President Obama after he didn’t hold bilateral meetings with world leaders during his visit to N.Y. for the U.N. General Assembly. Anderson Cooper talks to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria and David Gergen on the importance of personal relationships in foreign affairs.
Jessica Yellin, Jim Acosta and Fareed Zakaria discuss attention to foreign policy in the U.S. presidential race after the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
