One of the most thought-penetrating columns on education we have ever read is on this page by Walter Williams, who is a professor of economics at George Mason University. Every teacher and school administrator should read what he wrote about our educational system and the dumbing down that has occurred.

Often do we hear comments about how bright our young people are today. Please read his column, especially about surveys that have been taken about events Americans should know, but are completely ignorant. It’s scary. Yes, bright about some things but dumb about other things that make a well-educated student.
