And these are the people who teach our children . . . Forty-five years ago, "education" was the field-of-choice for that generation's "low-information" high school graduates . . . that has continued for two generations: teachers drawn from a pool of the mediocre, often barely-literate . . . no emphasis on, or requirement for, "hard"/objective subject knowledge -- just a willingness to be an "agent of change" and parrot the fashionable teaching-technique-of-the-day. No wonder that today's public school teachers are the ultimate in "low-information": having none, and providing none . . . possessed only of a distorted view of history/reality, and a boundless sense of entitlement. And these are the people who teach our children .
