10% of college grads believe Judge Judy sits on the Supreme Court

That’s today’s “higher education” for ya…
Judge Judy shakes head rolls eyes
This doesn’t surprise me at all. Today’s college students don’t recognize Reagan.
They spend a lot of time studying issues other than history like sex toy workshops.
They get extra credit for not shaving their armpits.
And they want to abandon traditional applications, transcripts and test scores because they are ‘all about privilege and wealth’.
It’s no wonder they can’t even distinguish between a TV judge and an actual judge on the Supreme Coutr.
Todd Starnes over at Fox News reports that a recent survey showed that nearly ten percent of recent college graduates say that television star Judith Sheindlin is on the Supreme Court.
The American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) said their survey uncovered a “crisis in American civic education.” The ACTA describes itself as an independent organization committed to academic freedom, excellence and accountability at America’s colleges and universities.
Their findings reveal “that recent college graduates are alarmingly ignorant of America’s history and heritage.”
In it’s reporting on the study, US magazine reports that students could not identify the father of the U.S. Constitution or name one of our First Amendment Rights.

As Mr. Starnes put it, “We’ve gone from the Greatest Generation to the stupidest.”

If you look at what people studied back then–you will know this is correct. So much for the decline of America. I personally owe much of this to the decline of family values, and the institution of “Unions” for teachers.

Our friends/neighbor’s parents attended our church. We were like “family” through many years of vacations, special events, birthdays, religious celebrations. I recorded my neighbor’s father’s WW II story in my OWN family records b/c I didn’t want them to ever disappear. The thing that amazed me the most—-and keeps me contrasting today’s “kids” with that generation is this story: He grew up with his dad, a single parent in Depression Era Oklahoma. Much of the time they ate rattlesnake meat if they were going to have meat at all on their subsistance farm. He left high school in his senior… Read more »

If there is any doubt on the decline of working brains, just go back and watch old clips of Jay Leno’s Man on the Street interviews or the current ones done by Watter’s World, when he goes to college campuses.
Like the good Dr. said, there is no excuse for ignorance.
If people would lay down their phones for two hours a day and pick up a book, the changes we could see.
