The Dumbing Down of America: Our Failed System of Education

Dumbing Down America

by Yvonne Cousar Reading, writing and arithmetic use to be the staple of our American educational system. Students were only allowed to advance after they had mastered the requirements of their particular course disciplines. However, many graduating students today (including both high school and college graduates) cannot read or write, and do not have the basic skills necessary to secure their advancement into the real world with real life situations. A disproportionate number of the new homeless are college graduates who have a degree, but had not learned any coping skills during their four years walking the halls of our …continue reading

Political Correctness

by Yvonne Cousar “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” – Samuel Johnson “Civility,” what does it mean, how do you recognize it and where did it go?  In the old days when men wore hats and ladies wore gloves and high heels, and men would tip their hats and say “ma’am.”  People would say “thank you” when you gave them something and you said “you’re welcome.” People would say “excuse me” or “pardon me” if they interrupted you in conversation. Were those the “good old days,” or just …continue reading
