The main reason for the generalized failure of the education system is due to the fact that it's primary goal has shifted. No longer focused on "the three r's" (skills required by a productive member of society) the system is mainly engaged in promoting a liberal/progressive thought process. Students come away with a misunderstanding of what is required to be a personal success, but a strong desire to fit in with others. Blending well with the rest of the uninformed, the entire 'product' of the school system agrees that they have no reason to be a productive member of society because they deserve to be given what they need to live ... just as they were given their grades, trophies, and diplomas without any real effort on their part.
