Toom, Andrei – American Educator: The Professional Journal of the American Federation of Teachers, 1993
Contrasts the author's experiences teaching mathematics in Russia and as an immigrant to the United States. The author is particularly critical of the emphasis on grades and formal records in American higher education. American education is often guilty of confusing good grades or a degree with competence.
