You are correct, they had no idea what they were talking about.
The American educational system has been going down hill since at least 1960, the year I was born.
Every year we fall farther and farther behind the rest of the world in Math and Science at least.
I for one would be very interested in finding out what the British Educational system says about the American Revolution.

We are no longer melting the whole person. Just their heads. This saves a lot of money, and energy. Especially when melting our infamous Hotheads. They practically melt themselves.
In all honesty, I think all countries have a fair number of Jeenyusses. We're just louder, and we're always right. Always! Dontcha know?

Wouldn't surprise me. Teenage culture in this country is largely one of willful ignorance and stupidity. For some reason, it's cute to be an idiot.
I want to say the majority of folks aren't so stupid, but I'm not sure if I'd be lying. That is to say, I honestly have a hard time gauging it. I do suspect that most people are complete morons though. Especially in history, we're terrible at history; it's one of our most understressed subjects in schools.
But, what another poster said is true, kids are taught to test, not to learn.
Also, please fix your grammar, OP. It's pretty terrible.
Oh, and Ghost, Britain didn't really get its ass handed to it in WW2. That little island withstood the brute force of the Nazi war machine for a good long time and kept fighting. Sure, it was no match for a power that had taken up well over half of Europe and had the resources of those lands, not to mention conscripts and many scientists from Germany's top world class universities, but it held its own.
WW1 was all but won when America joined, we had been helping in other ways though. WW2, we were the turning point, we can take credit for it, but down downtalk Britain for not being able to launch an offensive from an island while dealing with 24/7 Luftwaffe bombs.
