that's interesting stuff but I'm not surprised by it at all. Somehow I feel Caribbean Education is affected too. In 2006 I worked with British Gas on a project called the Science-Bus which are buses that go around to schools teaching about science but in a fun way with games & activities & stuff; practical science workshops. We did 1 or 2 schools per day & I came across lots of kids who were 10-15 yrs that couldn't read & write well, so they couldn't follow simple instructions either. I remember having them do a simple puzzle activity to place internal organs on a body which was torture to watch. Kids were asking me what was 'lungs' & where do they go. Although there were some smart ones. I think a child that has good parents plus their own capacity may be the only ones that have a chance within the system.

I'll never forget a trip to Bermuda, when I met a Black kid, perhaps 11 years old, wearing a private school blazer, with impeccable manners. He carried on an intelligent and stimulating conversation with me.
I suppose he will be part of what the Bible calls the "remnant." I hope my children are as well.
Here's what churches and schools need to be doing.

"It takes far less effort to find and move to the society that has what you want than it does to try to reconstruct an existing society to match your standards." - Harry Browne, How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World
It's true. My parents sent me to this high school school that required a test to get into, but I wanted to go to the vocational school on the same campus. They figured since I'm a pretty sharp guy it made sense for me to go to the smart school. Well it turns out I was too smart for the magnet school and didn't learn much. If I had gone to the vocational school I'd have at least been well rounded.
This is one of the reasons why so many foreign students ( primarily from Asia) are flocking into US colleges and universities. To them US programs are so easy and competing with Americans is a non-issue. It's easy to get into US colleges as well- entrance exams as such are virtually non-existent- you just take TOEFL/IELTS and you are in.
I suspect the same dumbing down is happening in other Ango countries such as Oz, NZ, etc. It is also useful for the elites because these Asian students are paying huge money to get a US/Oz/NZ degree and when they go back home they are treated like kings.
Very few get to meet Americans ( or other Anglos) or make American ( or other Anglo) friends, though. There is too much racism and jealousy. Just go and look at college campuses and you will see apartheid that will make Henrik Verwoerd envious.
There are no virtually no Western Euros at US colleges and Unis are there? That is because not only US degrees are expensive but also because they are not recognized in many of those countries.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
You're right on the money. Here in Canada lots of Asian or Muslims come to get their diplomas and fly back. They don't even bother to learn how to communicate properly in English.
