I'm aware we have a youtube thread; however, this is more than deserving of its own.
I'm curious... how would you rate your school, and do you think anything's improved since this was aired? I can tell what's going on, though since I haven't been to the US (aside from airport stopovers) since I was a baby, I'm really not sure as to the true extent of things.
I must say though; it does worry me when I know more about the American Civil War (which is given only a passing mention at best outside of the US) than an American student of my age (5:00 or thereabouts). I also can't really pretend that what I see on the internet in terms of people's attitudes or even basic literacy don't bother me. Clearly there are plenty of smart Americans out there, but where does the school system sit in all of this?
I'd rather this didn't turn into an e-soap, let's get some intelligent discussion happening on these forums. By all means, if you don't live in the US, feel free to assess your own school system too.
