This is so disturbing.  The level of knowledge among American school children is dropping lower and lower.  In fact, things that every school child knew when I was growing up are now not even TAUGHT in school (do YOU know Lincoln’s ACTUAL birthday, or just that we celebrate “President’s Day” some time in February?)
A recent survey was done for July 4th, and 26% of the population didn’t know or were not sure what country we fought to gain our Independence!!  What other country COULD IT HAVE BEEN? Not only are students uninformed, they also don’t seem to be able to use cognitive thinking and reasoning!
Sadly, most of that 26% who didn’t know who we gained our Independence from, were under 30 years old.
Have educators just given up?  Teachers were paid crap when I was in school, too, but they still managed to get the knowledge into our heads.
Is it that the teachers just can’t compete with iPhones for the students’ attention?
