It's a beautiful country with a lot of things to do. I love this country as a tourist and there are definitely states where you could live at least as good as in most developed EU countries (if not better). But whenever there's any political discussion about the US, I dont have a single good word to say about it.
And yeah, I think the whole word knows that the US isnt really known for having great secondary education. We are not talking about Harvard applicants, we are talking about average people with casual jobs like waitress, warehouse worker, construction worker, electrician etc. These are good, normal jobs and nothing to be ashaned of but most of these people will be less educated than the same EU person because unless you are rich enough to attend to high-valued unis, your education will be below EU standards
