WHY??? Are American Kids Dumber Than Dirt?
I keep running into American college students and foreign college students lately, and what a friggin difference.

As a matter of fact. We just had a 4 year american college student work with us for a month and the kid was freakin USLESS! Brought his usless dog and usless college girlfriend to work with him every day and all 3 of them just hung around. They're all gone now.

I run into foreign college students all the time and they all are getting job offers in the U.S. because our own student are just a bunch of drunks.

I guess it is true that stupid people spend more money, so the American Gobbermint wants everyone stupid.

You never spent time in Boston did you? The biggest COLLEGE town in the world. From what I saw there was a lot of smart and stupid americans and a lot of smart and stupid other students.

The thing is...the students all worked together and unlike you didn't give a crap where the others were from (except to learn more about other cultures) they all were equal. Some smarter, some dumber, some more creative, some better looking, some younger, some older, but all for a quest to learn, explore and meet others.

American adults still vote on their children's future on one topics. Ex. Abortion, Gay Marriage. Thus it is no surprise to me that our children in general are fairly much dumbasses.

Better than going hungry I guess! I would think that you would want to travel many places around the world and meet many people..why did you say you wouldn't want to? Just curious. I think that there are a lot of young and old people in the world that you would love to meet if you get the chance.

It is because school districts keeping lowering the bar.

Some of the recent changes in Dallas Independent School District:

1. Allow students to retake tests they have failed. Can keep the higher grade.

2. Homework grades will only count if they help the overall average.

More at the story.

LOL, no I am not personally hurt..I don't have anyone in college for a few years. I have worked hard on teaching my son to think and grasp things not just memorize things. So, we'll see.

I do believe however, that smart and dumb is nothing new to students and not just one, two or three countries. The students of the world are not ALL dumb as you say...it is a numbers game..we have more people than we ever have. Thus, we have more stupid and smart people as well.

Re: WHY??? Are American Kids Dumber Than Dirt?
So many of the kids in my city that I see waiting for the school bus look more like they are going to a gang meeting than to school. It's a pretty scary vision of the future.

I hold the parents responsible. The government is not here to raise our kids. We've been brainwashed into thinking that we have no responsibility for our children's education but the truth is that the primary responsibility for a child's education lies with the parents.

It's funny you mentioned this I watched the US-remake pilot episode of Red Dwarf after a thread on here the other day.

Most of the humour was just pulled directly from the original UK series but in the US episode they seemed to go out of their way to explain all the gags, as if they just expected most American's wouldn't understand the humour which on the whole was pretty simple.

Re: WHY??? Are American Kids Dumber Than Dirt?
I have a friend who has two teenage daughters. She lets them dress in scandalous clothing, dance nasty and put provocative pics all over their myspace and youtube sites. Her oldest one is 16, and she barely passes low level high school courses with D's and the occassional C. The younger teen is a little smarter, but her mother allows her to act like a hoochie. Why? They see their mother dressing like a hoochie and putting sexy pics all over the internet supposedly just taking them for her husband...but she has cheated on him (he cheated on her too) and all her kids know about their affair, and yet the girls emulate her behavior after seeing the turmoil their parents brought into the home with their choices. The oldest girl puts no effort into her studies, all she cares about is looking good, having makeup, having expensive clothes and shoes, and of course, boys. She sneaks boys in when her mother and father are not home. What can be expexcted? They get it from their mamma. Don't blame Americans. This behavior is universal.

Re: WHY??? Are American Kids Dumber Than Dirt?
If it is anything like the present system in the UK then it is at least partly because they are being taught to tests. This sort of education system teaches people how to pass tests but not how to think, reason or create. It doesn't give either depth or width of knowledge and certainly doesn't teach people how to learn for themselves. It produces competent form fillers essentially unless the family background can compensate for the system and sadly that is often not the case (but that is an entirely different debate I think).
