Our educational system no longer produces well-rounded human beings. Rather, it produces people who can regurgitate answers to standardized tests because schools are evaluated on the basis of those test results. We see the result of this even on social media, where most people don’t know how to construct a decent argument for their position and confuse their opinion for factual evidence. This is largely the result of continuing cuts in education funding. It seems we have plenty of money for killing children in foreign lands but none for educating our own.
