What the heck is going on?
The American education system, is it in shambles? You would think so watching Jessy Waters on fox ask Americans simple history questions like who was the first president of the United States of America? When the answer is I don’t know or Bill Clinton there seems to be a problem in America.
I have started asking my grandchildren a few simple questions regarding our American history.
Who was our first president? Who was president during the civil war? What were the reasons for the civil war? Which side won the war? Who was the president during the World War II? What happened to John Kennedy? Have we ever had an actor become the president? And the real stumper: What the difference between an elephant and a pussyfor?
I know I’m going to get smacked for the last one but if you can’t answer the others you deserve that one.
So far as I see it the biggest dummies come out of our most elite colleges. I do question Mr. Water’s choice of locations to grab people and ask his questions, the beach at spring break or the campus common. Maybe he would get a better result if he made his inquiries at the campus library?
This Water’s world thing has been going on for several years and the results have been less than one would be expected of college level students. I wonder why the educational community would put up with it without starting a counter effort on PBS or one of the NEA touting lefty networks. It makes me think, is that the goal of the left, to dumb down the nation to better control us?
Well Mr. Waters will you check out the libraries or a real collage like Liberty, or Seattle University, or maybe the kindergarten at Highland Park elementary?
