  •  Oh, well, sad for those students. (3+ / 0-)

    If only they were in private school.  This is clear evidence we don't need public education for all.  Private school is so much more helpful.  If you can't afford it, oh well, sad for you.

    The dumbing down of America continues and will continue as long as we allow it.  Until progressives start being more vocal and decide they're not going to take it anymore, it will continue.

    GOTV for progressives.

      whose parents could pay for the help they need.

      It's not a "dumbing down." Those with money are doing just fine. It's a wholesale abandonment of those without money, influence and power.

        It's part of the destruction of the middle class. People with educations and good jobs don't fall for or tolerate being dominated by a cruel Oligarchy. Poor, undereducated people however do.

        It's been the plan ever since the middle class got out of control during the 60's, scared the bejeebus out of the ruling Oligarchy they did. So one Lewis Powell sat down and wrote a plan of action to destroy that middle class and after 40 years, it's pretty much worked.

        It's been an incredibly cynical attack on the real values America once stood for, however briefly, and the promise of the American Dream which has become the American Nightmare and worst of all, the Oligarchy's propaganda organs have succeeded so wildly that the people they most wished to destroy 40 years ago have been converted to supporting that same Oligarchy and have helped destroy themselves. It's really rather remarkable.
