When do you think the education system really changed?
#1
I am old enough I remember back when the powers that be thought an educated populace was to their advantage...new ideas, new inventions....new commerce

smart people getting things done and they (the gov) could vampire taxation off of the profits

but at some point, that changed....dramatically

they decided a bunch of idiotic, poorly educated sheep was best and they could still suck a share of their pitiful earnings away but they were too stupid to do anything about it and too stupid to be a threat to power.

I think it came in the late 80's.

I was born in 1965...I went through school with the general consensus of being smarter is good and new ideas were welcomed

I graduated high school in 1983, went to school for awhile and entered the job market hot and heavy in 1987.

but somewhere...something changed

Logic, reason and critical thinking were no longer supported and eventually became openly attacked.

I love me some 80's...the 90's weren't too bad...but the 2000's and beyond have sucked donkey cock as far as the freedom to think and express those thoughts is concerned....

the limits on thought and exploration of reality have been clamped down...there are things you are just not supposed to explore anymore because it might hurt someone's feelings

IQ by race and gender

Strength by race and gender

physical capabilities and limitations by race and gender

none of these are acceptable fields of exploration now because

you might hurt someone's feelings with facts

that well could be

i grew up in hill schools out in the middle of bumfuck Egypt so the radical changes were slower coming

I did not see really big changes till I started seeing the curriculum of my kids....that is when I knew something wicked this way comes

The plan for that cam about with and through our great industrialists. They set about and took minutes hich recorde the intent to change education to teach the childrten not to be lawyers, artists, arcane thinkers but to be taught how do do pe4fectly what their parents then did imperfectly. They began in the souther states. They have their names on our most prestigioys universities and colleges today. When they went to school back then an 8th grade test from a common scho0l had a broade5r coverage of teachings that mst colkleges do today. Read Dr. Doom and get a look at our contemporary schools and thinking.

well yes and no

in the turn of the century, the industrialists wanted better educated folks...they could make money off of them

then as time progressed and industry progressed...

it became clear to "the masters" that they no longer needed smart workers in numbers, just a few, they needed dumb, dedicated workers...

and they set about making that happen

and boy have they had success

just look around you

I bet 8 out of 10 people you meet can not tell you the names of the great lakes or the 3 branches of government

they cannot tell you what the Pythagorean theorem is or how it can be used in day to day life

they cannot tell you how to grow a garden or raise a chicken to give eggs

They can'ttell you how to catch a fish or how to clean it

They can't tell you how to track game and follow a bloodtrail from an archery wound

they did this on purpose...to make people dependent on the gov

My high school opened in '72. It was the first in the state with a smoking lounge/court and one could leave the school grounds for destinations unknown for study halls. This changed in'78 & '79. In '78 they introduced forced busing from the inner cities. In '79, they removed the smoking lounge and restricted all activities to the school grounds during school hours. I was class of '80. That was the closest thing to a definitive line between the boomers and X'ers that I've ever experienced. Some of the change you speak of is generational.

Both Russia and China said that...they would bring down the USA and never fire a shot

they have proven to be quite effective

the weakness and the doubt they have sewn is sad

well not all of us are poisoned....come and get some commies

you will find the weak are the minority and most of us just learned to keep our public opinions to ourselves a long time ago

I have something for you....

it's a hammer and a sickle...

I am going to bash your skull in with the hammer and chop off your head with the sickle

I still want to know why I learned the metric system. Allegedly the whole world was going to become metric. We learned it and it never happened.
I think I received an okay education but I do believe that the No Child Left behind totally destroyed public education. After no child left behind, the schools were allowed to drop the level of education standard down to the dumbest kid.
