"Dumbing Down America: Miss USA- 'Should math be taught in schools?'"

"Dumbing Down America: 
Miss USA- 'Should math be taught in schools?'"

"Funny, but we're not that far from this. No one actively prevents people from learning. It's not like slave days where it was a crime to teach slaves to reach and write and a crime for them to learn how. Yet, our culture - as projected by television - doesn't really encourage learning, does it? This video is a joke, but it skates uncomfortably close to the truth. What do you call a society that has every opportunity to learn, but actively chooses not to? "Doomed" is one word that comes to mind." 
As the Mogambo Guru says, "We're so freakin' doomed!"
