Good old Mr. Alex Jones, at it again. I am not sure what the deal is with the music in the background, but overall he has some very good points.
America ranks a GLORIOUS 26th place when it comes to global education standards. "Third World" countries are surpassing us in technology as I type this. (India has more working robots in the field of Robotics than America does! WTF? Japan, of course, but India?)
The basic premise is this. The government inacted "No Child Left Behind." during the Bush Administration. They got exactly what they paid for...
Shotty education at best, cheap and low quality education programs, high priced universities teaching high school equivalent material. All of "these" being the education standard of today. The less we engage our children's minds, the less likely they will think outside the box. Free thinker's are dangerous. So, in effect, coupled with the INSANE amounts of "entertainment" and "pop culture trends" and such, create a passive, inactive, sheeple. Satisfied with our own demise, as long as we look good doing it, or it feels exciting long enough for us to forget the real problems.
As said before, the government invested all that money and got exactly what they were hoping... a land of T.V. fed sheeple, eagerly awaiting the next big meal of lies. In dumbing us down as a whole, the government is using education as a weapon against ourselves.
