These Imbeciles Thought the Titanic Disaster Was Just a Movie
Our children no longer feel compelled to study history because... well, you and I are no longer young enough to know everything!
This is 1984 - stupidity is knowledge - ignorance is truth.
In the UK the dumbing down of the curriculum has been disguised: the government have been saying for years that they need to emphasise 'skills' rather than 'knowledge' since that is what employers want! What a load of BS!!

In a nut shell Charlotte Iserbyt who used to be a Senior Policy Advisor for Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, for Reagan's first term became a not so popular whistle blower. The video lays out a plan on how to dumb down the future generations.
Have a look see.
