The following may be an important factor as to why ours are not measuring up:

"Recent research reveals an apparent paradox for U.S. millennials (born after 1980, ages 16-34): while they may be on track to be our most educated generation ever, they consistently score below many of their international peers in literacy, numeracy and problem solving in technology-rich environments. Equally troubling is that these findings represent a decrease in literacy and numeracy skills when compared to results from previous years of U.S. adult surveys. As a country, simply providing more education may not be the answer. There needs to be a greater focus on skills -- not just educational attainment -- or we are likely to experience adverse consequences that could undermine the fabric of our democracy and community. This vital new report sheds light on the growing inequality of opportunity in the United States and the impact this has on both skills acquisition and outcomes for both current and future generations."

It's not all bad news for US millennials. They're number one in wokeness and undeserved sense of entitlement.

You don't think European millennials have a bigger sense of entitlement, with their free health care and free college, and ------- on network tv and drinking at 16?

Definitely entitled. The moment the pie starts to shrink in their countries, right wing parties make record political gains to throw out the undesirables and maintain the pie.

No.

They have huge VATs that Americans would scoff at having to pay. It's only a good deal if you're able to feel the Bern and make someone else pay.

In the United States before Obamacare medical expenses was the number one cause of bankruptcy. Trump is determined to bring that back. Nuf said.
