How Dumb Have We Become? Chinese Students Are 4 Grade Levels Ahead Of US Students In Math

Authored by Michael Snyder via The End of The American Dream blog,

How in the world is America supposed to remain “the greatest country on Earth” when other nations are absolutely running circles around us when it comes to education? As you will see below, one survey found that 15-year-old students in China are almost four full grade levels ahead of 15-year-old students in the United States in mathematics. This is one of the most damning indictments of our education system that I have ever come across, and it is yet another clear indication that what we are doing is simply not working. Our children are not being given the tools that they need to compete in our modern society, and we have only ourselves to blame.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the biggest burdens on the education system in this country, was the adoption of "Common Core", inflicted on America's schools by Barak Obama in 2009.

And so the "gifts" from this program, just keep on giving; American students are, largely, illiterate; innumerate, and incapable of critical thinking, all of which are desperately needed to function in real life.

But if something like "Common Core" is simply allowed to persist, and past the transition from a Democratic to a Republican president, there are reasons why this is allowed to continue.

Intellectually, and sometimes chemically challenged individuals, particularly as kids, make far better targets for governmental manipulation, than does someone who has a fundamentally "top-down" understanding of how things work.

So if a population of a country is unable to think critically, starting with those crucial, formative school years, and is also chemically disabled, through the easy availability of SSRIS, or other pharmacologically active drugs thrust upon them, the government believes that anything it says, no matter how completely ludicrous, is most probably going to be taken at face value, even though it might be the polar opposite of the truth.

Ever since the inception of the Vietnam War, I have understood, very clearly, and painfully, that the US government has a penchant for lying, in order to justify massive aggression against a country which has neither declared war against us, or done anything nasty against us.

But DAMN, it was a "heady moment" for all the military contractors, because so much of their equipment got destroyed, and had to be replaced.

It was only when President Johnson saw the massive march in DC in 69, he realized that he could not possibly get re-elected on the war agenda, that began his pilgrimage on that hard road to reality, that this war was unwinnable.

1969: Millions march in US Vietnam Moratorium.
Americans have taken part in peace initiatives across the United States to protest against the continuing war in Vietnam.
The Peace Moratorium is believed to have been the largest demonstration in US history with an estimated two million people involved.

The wars, and war crimes, in which this country has been monumentally complicit since then, are crystal-clear testaments to the butt-ugly truth; that most generally, the Federal Government has gotten its population precisely where it wants it: sated with readily-available prescription drugs, putting them in a state of stupor; always craving new distractions; and trapped by the inability to think critically, when it comes to both personal, and political decisions.

Can we make our education system the envy of the world?!?

Absolutely.

But the leadership is then going to have to put up with the fact that some thinking, peaceful Americans are going to, both logically and publicly, criticize how and what this government is doing, and ask for a real, and responsible, and substantive change in its course of action.

And THAT is something that those entrenched in the Bowels of Power in this country, never want to see happen.
