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

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.

The Boy Crisis: The Statistics Tell Us That American Boys Are Falling Behind In Just About Every Area

As a society we appear to be really dropping the ball, because the numbers indicate that American boys are deeply struggling in just about every area.  Many professionals are pointing to a “crisis of fatherhood” as one of the key factors, and as I pointed out the other day, approximately a third of all U.S. children are now being raised in a home without a father.  Of course this negatively affects our girls as well, but there is something about that lack of a masculine role model that seems to particularly hurt boys.  However, the lack of a traditional family structure cannot explain all of the numbers that I am about to share with you.  As you will see, we are facing a crisis that will not easily be solved.

18 Statistics That Prove That America Has Become An “Idiocracy”

What in the world has happened to us?  Once upon a time, America had the greatest system of education on the entire planet, and our people were sharp, capable and extremely well informed.  Sadly, none of those things are true anymore.  In 2006, Mike Judge made a movie entitled “Idiocracy” in which an individual of below average intelligence wakes up after being asleep for 500 years thanks to a military hibernation experiment.  When he wakes up, he quickly realizes that he is now the smartest man in America, and that is not a good thing.  The film became an instant classic, but when I originally watched it I thought that such a thing could never actually happen in this country.  Unfortunately, I was wrong.  Since 2006 our nation has been “dumbed down” at a pace that is absolutely staggering, and it is difficult to see a positive future for America if this trend continues.

Now That They Have Deeply Insulted All Men With Their “Toxic Masculinity” Ad, Let’s Respond By Boycotting Gillette

Does Gillette really think that they are going to sell more razors to men after millions of men watch their horrific new ad that is essentially an all-out assault on masculinity?  The new ad is entitled “We Believe: The Best Men Can Be”, and within the first few seconds the term “toxic masculinity” is used.  This is a deeply, deeply offensive term, and it has no place in our society.  After all, could you imagine the uproar that would ensue if a large corporation dared to use the term “toxic femininity” in an advertisement?  Women would be freaking out from coast to coast, and for good reason.  There would simply be no excuse for using the term “toxic femininity”, and there is simply no excuse for using the term “toxic masculinity”.  Gillette owes every man in America an apology, and they better make it a good one.

The American Psychological Association Issues New Guidelines That Say “Traditional Masculinity Can Hurt Boys”

Should we be teaching young boys to reject traditional masculinity?  According to the American Psychological Association, that is precisely what we should be doing.  In this day and age, “traditional masculinity” has been renamed “toxic masculinity”, and an all-out attempt is being made to eradicate traditional forms of male behavior from our society.  We see this happening in our classrooms, we see this happening in popular culture, and lately this new agenda is being constantly pushed by the mainstream media.  For example, the New York Times just published a piece about the new guidelines for men that the American Psychological Association recently issued.  Their article was entitled “Traditional Masculinity Can Hurt Boys, Say New A.P.A. Guidelines”, and it suggests that we need to totally redefine what it means “to be a man”… (Read More...)

Another Sign America Is Done: Teacher Fired For Refusing To Give 50% Grade To Students Who Didn’t Turn In Their Homework

Should students that refuse to turn in their homework receive a grade of 50 percent anyway?  Of course not.  That would be like workers that didn’t show up for work asking for 50 percent of their paychecks.  Our system of education has become a complete and utter joke, and the rest of the world is laughing at us.  Fortunately, there are still a few brave souls that are standing up for what is right.  52-year-old history teacher Diane Tirado was hired by the West Gate K-8 School in Port St Lucie, Florida for this school year, but she was fired when she refused to give students that didn’t turn in anything a 50 percent grade on their assignments.  When Tirado was hired, she was never told that the school has a “no zero” policy.  And when she found out, she refused to go along with it.

California Is Being Sued Because So Few Of Their Public School Children Can Read

At one elementary school in California, 96 percent of the students are not proficient in either English or math.  How is that even possible?  Unfortunately, the more the federal government gets involved in education, the worse it seems to get.  At one time the United States had the greatest system of public education on the entire planet, but these days we only seem to make headlines when news comes out about how poorly we are doing.  This has been a hot button issue for me for a long time, but even I was surprised when I learned that the state of California is actually being sued because so few of their public school children can read… (Read More...)
