This is like reading the Beavis and Butthead “Ensucklopedia” (e.g., “Spanish-American War: 1840, Rambo kicks Germans’ ass”) and THAT was an obvious parody to illustrate how dumb they were. Aaiigh! :O

There is a reason why this country hit its economic peak when the average education was at the 8th grade level.
But that was a long time ago, and I am too friggin’ tired to get into the concept of the millions who have now been “educated” far beyond their intelligence.
Most of them currently reside in academia and government.
No further explanation required.

This same experiment was done on a beach on July 4th and people were asked what the significance of the day was and who we fought to gain our independence. A large majority of them got it wrong as well. I suppose bias plays into it somewhat because the same questions could be asked in an Ivy league school with nearly 100% correct answers. I would also assume most all of the kids in the video would have had a complete recall of who won last year’s American Idol. What we value in this country has a great deal to… Read more »

Please show me the evidence for how more funding for public schools will improve student performance. The plain truth is that funding has continued to increase through the decades while, at the same time, student performance has declined. It’s a NEGATIVE correlation. But you propose that the “solution” is to increase funding public schools! It’d be funny if the consequences weren’t so awful. Ever thought of alternatives to public schools — such as charter schools and school vouchers? How about ridding the school curriculum of socio-cultural engineering content of teaching indoctrinating students on “safe sex,” “tolerance,” “multiculturalism,” and “gender neutral”,… Read more »

You took some of the words right out of my mouth, Dr E (I say it that way because you are much more erudite than I) I have my doubts that Jeff did that much studying of the problem, if he had, there is no way he would have come to his conclusions. Yeah, the teachers unions have single handedly ruined the schools. After installing all of their “progressive” programs, our students began their decline into ignorance. Our public education system is horrid, but an answer is coming… My governor Bobby Jindal is on the move. After Hurricane Katrina destroyed… Read more »

Kheta, you sorely underestimate yourself. Your “soapbox” comment is exquisitely articulate and brilliant. 😀

Ah, the liberal solution -more money! Why don’t schools try cutting spending to become more effficient, you know, like public sector?
Schools seem to have time to teach kids how to put a condom on a banana, what GLBT issues are important, “tolerance”, etc. Maybe if they focused on the three Rs, and history (not their version but actual facts), kids might have a chance.

The problem in my opinion is not the funding, it’s the Unions. It’s too hard to fire a teacher who is a member, and therefore they aren’t held accountable when their students fail.
I also believe education does not stop at the school steps! Parents must take an active role at home in their kids education. Those kids are a byproduct of those schools and their parents.

the public education system has been dumbed down so the dumb get a chance to graduate…. think about this fact the national average for black americans on the act test is a 17 my dog could score a 17 now these kids with their mighty 17 test scores go on to college where race norming exists and they waddle through a state university with their degree in sociology, african studies (which was primitive cultures when i went to college), and education they in effect become our teachers and if you have stupid teachers and stupid administrators the product that comes… Read more »

Enough of the teacher bashing! There are many, many, wonderful teachers who instruct appropriately! As a former staff member in an elementary school MOST staff members were competent and dedicated. These students are pathetic but I know that my seven year old granddaughter would have answered most questions accurately and she attends a public school.
I do not support teacher’s unions. I do not suppport their political agenda and their unrealistic contract demands. Most staff members have little to do with the politics endorsed by the union.
I taught for twenty one years and I am proud of my profession.

I didn’t mean to offend any teachers! I think teachers are undervalued AND underpaid. But I still think Unions are a big problem for those teachers that just aren’t doing their job. Ditto with universities. Why should there be tenure?

I have said this before, the November election will be won by the dumbing down of America or the current administration stealing the election. People just a few years older than these students are voting and many have NO clue!
