Stupid in America to Air Tonight on ABC

"In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made School Boards."
-Mark Twain


Listened to John Stossel on the Laura Ingraham Show this morning, plugging his ABC Special, Stupid in America.

In light of the recent NEA financial disclosure, and the idiocy of the Florida Supreme Court ruling on school vouchers, I think it's important to educate Americans on the true nature of our education system, and explore in earnest, in what areas it is, where we are failing our children.

You can see a sneak preview here, of the special.

Also worthy of mention, is the book, Education Myths, by Jay P. Green and Marcus A. Winters.

Lillian Perry is RIGHT! also mentions about the Stossel Special.

Aaargh! This means I'm going to have to decide between Stossel or BSG. I suppose I could stay up and catch BSG when it repeats late at night. Or set the VCR for one of the programs. Oh, the trouble and toils of living in such a priveleged society!
