It is kinda weird when you think about things from the way they "used" to be....
People were smarter SOMEHOW (:puz "back in the day" compared to now.....
This stuff really makes you think about some things.....
As "anti-conspiracy" as I typically am, I have to agree with you.... It's no secret that I do NOT believe there is some secret "elite" cabal trying to enslave the masses....
However, I do believe that there has been a "change" in the effective capacity of our generations....this "change" may be genetic or not. As a society, we seem less intellectually capable than previous generations but it extends to more than just that. We are more overweight, less healthy....less of a "threat" to our enemies (both real and imagined).
Once we accept this premise (even if it is just for argument's sake), the question becomes "why?" What is the agenda or is there one? Are we being engineered to be dumber, fatter, and more complacent (i.e. conspiracy)? Or is this just the natural evolutionary path that our "success" or "societal ideology" has taken us (i.e. no conspiracy)?
In regards to education, I believe it has been engineered. I believe that "junk science" has been utilized to push "better teaching methods" to get industry & general society to adopt these changes. What did the quote from Russell say in my OP? "The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated." That starts by removing the ability to think critically, downplaying logic as an "eccentricity," and changing the role of education to focus on behavior (or "indoctrination" as someone else put it...) instead of facts, knowledge, and history.edit on 7-3-2013 by CIAGypsy because: (no reason given)

They are of course illegals and probably the source for much of the education testing. Then you have the black population.
To give you and example ted just posted a talk by a black american yesterday and his whole theme and I quote is "plant #" - That's the most intelligent black person they could find to talk about urban gardening - someone who basically is reinforcing ghetto ideology but applying it to curbside gardens now. And even if it wasn't why highlight low class ghetto behavior?
I hear people say that's not indicative of an entire ethnicity and many point to my room mate Ken who is very nice, hardworking and black.
Ken just totaled his car drunk driving - he crashed it once before and now has no car and no license. His parents - one whose a minister and the other a professor lost there mcmansion a few years ago after there ARM rolled over (imagine that) and now there credit like their sons is shot. Even my parents friends who are highly educated and successful lawyers told my family we should pay reparations.
Because apparently there was still slavery in the 1930's when my family immigrated to the US...
Even my black girl friends all refused to date black males, refused to date there own kind.
But lets not talk about any of that.

It is not just the schools that are dumbing us down, TV viewers are under constant barrage of justifying dumbness using humor. It's funny so how can it be bad?
"Survival of the fittest" no longer applies to the human race, and indeed it is generally the least intelligent, the least educated that perpetuate their genes in greater numbers.
Genetic disorders that once would have been eliminated by nature through natural selection are perpetuated as though they were positive genetic mutations.
Human kind is de-evolving even as we speak. If you consider the above,.. then the future of humankind will be a less intelligent race of sickly genetically messed up humans.
I believe that mankind will be less equipped to deal with any catastrophic event that we cannot fix with technology...
There would be an irony when the most highly evolved creature in the solar system dies off because they could not adapt to some change in their ecosystem that their less evolved forefathers would have been able to weather.
That doesn’t mean it’s all downhill, though. Dr. Crabtree says, “although our genomes are fragile, our society is robust almost entirely by virtue of education, which allow strengths to be rapidly distributed to all members."

The California Education Policy Fund (CEPF) is housed and managed as a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA). RPA has engaged Capitol Impact, LLC, a Sacramento-based education consulting firm with deep knowledge and expertise in statewide education reform, policy, strategy, research and project management to provide management support to the Fund. In addition to working with RPA to ensure successful implementation of the grant program, Capitol Impact provides targeted technical assistance to further leverage the reform-oriented work of grantees as well as encourages collaboration amongst grantees.
CEPF is intended to support a balanced ecosystem of nonprofit organizations working to improve the conditions for education policymaking in the state of California, with an emphasis on underserved students. CEPF invests in high-performing, action-oriented advocacy and organizing groups, as well as groups that focus on research, policy analysis and information sharing.
As of August 2012, CEPF has selected its second cohort of grantees.
The Fund seeks out partners working on statewide policy in one or more of the following areas of interest:
Standards and Accountability: Standards, assessments, and accountability policies that prepare students to succeed in college and the workplace and to compete in the global economy
Data Systems: Improvements in state education data systems that measure student growth and success from pre-Kindergarten-through-college and the workforce, and inform teachers and principals about how they can improve instruction
Effective Teaching: Recruiting, developing, evaluating, rewarding, and retaining effective teachers and principals, especially where they are needed most
College Readiness: Policies to increase college readiness and the proportion of and pace by which low-income young adults progress through community colleges to completion of a credential with labor market value
Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten-12, and/or community college finance reform
Other evidence-based policy reforms: Initiatives including but not limited to extended learning time, universal preschool, and making A-G the default high school curriculum

The Scientific establishment in the US does seem to be crashing. I have hope though.
We are lazy... spoiled... and have lost our integrity. www.abovetopsecret.com...
Why we pull others from other countries and not strive to create our own first is beyond me. The US should be striving to create geniuses. We would rather dig for Gold, I suppose.
The education system here is in need, this is for sure. Here in my city, it's awesome. Some though, do not have the capability to be in a good school district and they are truly few and far between. That to me is troublesome, we could strive for better.
I push my kids to be great in Science and Math. We need children who are pushed to their limits and not filled with excuses as to why they are not top of their class.
We also need to know our kids and be involved.... it makes a world of difference.
I digress.... going to sleepy town and dream about it. lol
