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.



How would they benefit? They would have an entire generation of people who don't think for themselves, hence anyway we look at it if this is true, than we live in 1984 and the government is already controling us. You have to start when they're young.

And taught me the same thing for 12 years in a row, and somehow all i came out knowing was how to pass a standardised test.

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.

Absolutely, most of the stuff that we're taught isn't applicable for the real world. A lot of things don't, but that doesn't mean they're not worth learning.
