  1. Just because the country is rich, doesn’t mean the education system is good, or that the average person cares enough to educate themselves on certain topics.

  2. Funny how you think these go together. Much of why this country has been so successful has been by keeping the bulk of the population under educated.

  3. There’s no need for an entirely competent population, only a sufficient elite, followed by a middling number of competent production integrals, and then a major large trained labour force.

  4. Propaganda and seriously underfunded public education.

    You would think the last decade would be a scathing indictment of the US public schooling system, but here we fucking are.
