5 Ways the GOP Is Valiantly Trying to Make Americans as Dumb as Possible
NOTE: Look, it goes without saying that the poor performance of our high school graduates compared to other industrialized nations can't be laid only at the Conservative/Republican/Tea Bagger doorstep. Wait. Let me think a minute here. Actually, yeah, now that I think about it, it is perfectly rational to attribute plummeting OECD assessments (PISA scores) to teaching Creationism in schools, banning Toni Morrison's "Beloved" and everything Shakespeare from public schools because they might cause impressionable middle schoolers to rape someone, allowing Genesis to be taught as science, and re-writing history books to depict slavery as a mutually beneficial social contract between Black slaves and their White owners.
Anyone have any more questions about why American 15 year olds rank No. 36 behind such global powerhouses as Estonia, Viet Nam, Slovenia and Latvia?
Hey! How easy was that?
