i agree with you.
i am a 42 year old midwestern american, graduated from a public school in 1988.
moved back to my hometown and im working at a steakhouse now just a few miles from my old high school.
so we have a LOT of local kids there as hostesses and busboys, pizza cooks, you know..
anyway a lot of these kids look at me like im some sort of a mad science genius. at first i thought that this was because of my computer background
and interest in science hobbies. i assumed that these kids HAD MY BACKGROUND because they went TO MY SCHOOL.
I ask about chemistry, philosophy, ethics, and biology. The kids are almost completely ignorant. they have stopped dissections, no chemistry
experiments are performed...
philosophy, ethics, sociology, and psych are reserved for "college" (if you can get in)
in a discussion about DHS, drones, cameras, and the NWO some of the kids became confused at the term ORWELLIAN. i had to explain. high school
graduates had NEVER EVEN HEARD of George Orwell.
they were ignorant of the basics of LOGIC, could not define a secular basis for morals, had never built a simple electrical circuit, had never written
a short story, could not define the term TAUTOLOGY or explain its importance, could not define fallacy or provide an example.
THIS IS WHY FOX NEWS ATE THESE KIDS ALIVE.
what burns my buns tho is I WENT TO THEIR SCHOOL.
we had a FEW computers, and we learned PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES (in grade school YES)
they have a TON of computers, and the kids are users only, texting and watching celebrity videos... they are masters of media, but could not tell you
how TCPIP works...
we werent allowed NEAR the machine until we had passed all the stuff on paper first...
meanwhile it LOOKS like kids are being educated... look at all the money we spent on new PCs!!
oh yeah one more, when I was young the bright kids were sent into a GIFTED STREAM
whereas now if youre off the bell curve THEY DOPE YOU UP
