How Obama Got Elected

I've seen this on a few blogs, and thought I'd post it. Our educational system is a shame!

It is sad! Unfortunately "teaching to the tests" has taken a lot of time away from teaching historical facts. Seriously! Our main focus is Reading and Math. Science and Social Studies~ in that order. :( Love that grandpa knew! That says a lot! I was also taught in public school and remembered all but one of those questions. I also was interested in the subject in college and remember most of the kids weren't. I had been out of school for 14 years at the time and was competing against the "typical" student. (18-21 year olds from public and private schools) I made A's and they made C's and D's. Most of them, anyway. Most kids aren't really motivated any more. I'm not sure if the fault lies with the school/teachers or with the parents. Usually, it's a combination of it all.

This is so funny, but not really! I cannot believe that we have so many ignorant people running around and then we parade them on TV for the world to see!
