Video "Stupid in America" - about education in the USA: LINK

Well, kid graduates from school and parents find out that he cant either read or write... and cant even connect two words to express his thoughts if any... What do they do in school then? They just spend time under teachers' supervision and learn how to rat on their parents, if they would want to educate and raise them in a real sense...

And the wish of fairness from liberal educators has been granted.
No one child smarter, better or more well prepared for life than another.
The American Education has produced equality.
They are all as equally stupid as the most expensive educational system in the world can make them.

Now lets all go pledge alliegance and the farce will be complete.

"Jonathan Kozol, author of Illiterate America, refers to the millions of illiterate people in America as “half-citizens” (Kozol 25). As Kozol explains, illiterate citizens seldom vote because they are unable to make “informed decisions based on serious print information” (23). More than often, illiterates vote for “… a face, a smile, or a style, not for a mind or character or body of beliefs” (23). Furthermore, illiterates are unable to discern fact from rumor because they cannot read and analyze a variety of sources. Thus, they are unable to truly make informed decisions. Moreover, illiterates must rely on propaganda or word of mouth to ground their opinions, which affects how they choose to vote. Without the ability to read, an illiterate person may be voting for someone whose political beliefs go directly against theirs."

Schools seize homes over fees

EVERY week parents of private school students are losing their homes to bankruptcy actions taken by cash-strapped schools that can no longer wait for overdue fees.

There had been a 25 per cent increase in schools pursuing debtors to bankruptcy in the past year, said Roger Mendelson, the chief executive of Prushka, a debt collection agency that represents more than 400 private schools.
