What do they teach in school anymore? I am in awe.

Basics people. Basics!!!!

How can you not see how this may raise gas prices? How can you not see how rising gas prices will affect your food costs? How can you not see the posibility for retaliation?

I can add more "How can you nots" but why bother.

Who is to blame for the lack of basic knowledge? The schools? The students? The parents? Society?

  • I have to agree with NP, they teach to the test. Common sense and critical thinking are not on the test so they are not skills to be developed by the public school systems.
