We all know that American public school system is really terrible by my question is this:
What would the US government benefit from watering down our children?
Or whoever is behind this 'grand conspiracy'... why would it benefit them to stupid our children.
I know a lot of people who have 5.0 gpa's, 1500 SAT scores, going to University of Florida, Michigan, Miami... even some people in Harvard.
Me, I came with my 3.2 gpa and 1100 sat scores and when I have a convo with them about history or politics or anything else they dont know JACK shyte.
It amazes me how those people got 5.0 gpa's and 1500 sats when they dont know who Imhotep was.
And to the person who said the prince from Wales discovered America is wrong... The Egyptians discovered America 4,000 years ago...
But anyway... they only teach you what they want. Independant learning is what I have been doing all through high school.
I guarantee you my money that I am getting a better education in $1.50 worth of late library charges than my friend in Harvard spending 50 grand a year... that's the way it is.
At mi skool thiy touht mi how too spell.

Did it ever occur to anyone that we'll never even need most of the stuff we learn in high school for the real world? It's all a bunch of b.s. that they try to teach us because they think it's actually going help our future. The public education system is a joke.
