And We Wonder Why Our Science Scores Are So Low…

I often hear people here in the US constantly complaining about how low our test scores are, and worrying that our children are going to be unable to compete in the world… How did we get here? Could it be that while School Boards in the US are constantly having to fight to keep Superstition out of our class rooms, Other nations are broadcasting Children’s Programming like this:

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of our children being left in the intellectual dust. Its a source of constant amazment to me that so many of my countrymen seem to be able to look back on the incredable progress we have made as a nation and decide that a second Dark Age is the way to go. At least some nations have the right idea, because we are obviously so very lost here…
