Just wait until the states in the South start teaching their alternative history and creation and other nonsense once the education department is dismantled. Republicans will have generations of idiots for them to con and manipulate
It's the generation of helicopter parents that gave participation trophies that have done damage to our school system. School should be hard. Not everybody should pass. BUt we have dumbed down public education so everybody passes. Our stupid political system has it so people are elected based on bs numbers. Oh, our dropout and fail rate is bad, we have to get that up. how do we do it? Lets dumb down our curriculum. When standards are raised, parents throw fits. School is too hard, that test was too hard, my kids carry too many books, they have too much homework. Wow, wonder our education standards are so low
In many European countries, its an accomplishment to graduate from primary school. Here it has become almost a right. Every kid must graduate. THat's not the way it should be.
People in asia come to universities in the US and the first 2 years they are repeating what they already learned in high school
And guess what, without immigration of all these smart people from other countries, we would be screwed
NO!!!! Arabic numbers were invented in India! Not the Middle East!America’s decline isn’t unprecedented, Tyson said.

So were Arabic numerals — the numbers we still use today.
Everybody should make a point of watching the documentary "The Story of One," hosted by former Monty Python member Terry Jones. It covers the whole history of written numbers.
No one's allowed to post again until they've watched the whole thing.
