I can't seem to leave some news stories alone...
The key point that the article misses is that it doesn't address the goals of the American Educational System.
Actually, I should say "goal", because there is only one, and that can be summed up in one word...
The single goal is to make sure the student conforms to accepted thinking and current political thinking. Nothing more, and nothing less.
There are many examples to back this, but the clearest and the most obvious is the simple fact that every college student knows, and that is that on any particular exam, the correct answer is not the answer that best answers the question, but the answer that the professor/instructor says is the right answer.
In other words, all the elegant proofs and detailed analysis to prove that 2+2=4 doesn't mean squat if the professor says that 2+2=3. If you answer "4", you fail. If, on the other hand, you conform and answer "3", you pass.
Yes, it really is just that simple.
But we need people how can think analytically. We need, to use an old term, free-thinkers. But there is a problem with that...
Free-thinkers have always been seen by the regime in power as being dangerous. This is because the free-thinkers can see the fallacy of what the regime is saying, they can find the flawed logic. And they can lead the revolt that brings down the regime.
Therefore, we must nip free-thought in the bud, crush the creativity of the masses, and stop any activism against the regime before it gets started, before these dangerous individuals reach adulthood and can effect change.
God save us all if anyone should disagree with the tyrants.
