USA public schools NOT the worst in the developed world!

Between the ages of 16 and 19, virtually all Norwegians attend upper secondary school – an optional, three-year add-on to 13 years of compulsory elementary education. Most opt for public schools over private ones, and a goodly chunk of that group chooses a course plan whose emphasis is on history, social science, and the humanities. As our educators admit, though, Norwegian students would be remiss to expect to actually learn anything about those subjects. This is not an accident caused by the quality of the school system, which the international body PISA has repeatedly found to be among the worst in the developed world – it is a consequence of design. The bureaucrats and intellectuals who create the curriculum for Norway's State schools, most of whom attended university during the 1960s and 1970s and partook of that era's student radicalism, agree that the goal of education is not the transmission of knowledge, but the propagation of soixante-huitardisme, relativism, and a bellyfeel hatred of white Europeans.

And here I thought we're the only country with right wingers whinning about schools being "liberal."
It's "pea-can", man.

They are. You're either lying or in denial if you say otherwise. The same goes for academia.

I had to look soixante-huitardisme up. of course I had to use google to translate. what an interesting philosophy. Here are some translated slogans from the movement

Never work.
End of the university.
We will claim nothing, we do not ask. We will, we will occupy.
Be realistic, demand the impossible.
We buy your happiness. Steal it.
The alarm goes: First day of humiliation!
Imagine: it's war and nobody will!
Election trap cons.
It is forbidden to forbid
Under the cobblestones, the beach
Enjoy unhindered

clearly, some things don't well translate. or they do but are far less convincing.

Now look up 'dada' and 'LHOOQ'.

Same sort of thing, but applied to student unrest rather than painting. :BigGrin3:
