The anti-war liberal left that has infected all levels of our formally great education system in the last 40 years, has achieved their goal of intentionally dumbing down America. Since the DOE began, SAT scores have dropped every year in spite of making the test easier to pass so as not to offend anyone. 70% of college freshmen have to take remedial reading, writing and math before they can even try to understand anything taught at the university level. These socially promoted students ultimately fail anyway. The left needs stupid, ignorant people to fail so they will fall for the empty promises from the party of Santa Claus. The by-product of this failure-by-design was apparent with the re-election of a proven failure of a President.
