State Educashon - Dumb and Dumber

Soon all children will have to stay in some form of education till they are 18- a sort of protracted illiteracy programme to keep them off the unemployment rolls. The dumbed-down curicula is plumbing ever new depths with the government's numbingly moronic proposal yesterday to scrap subjects like geography and history in favour of a politically correct miasma of studies in touchy feelyism,exploring emotions and Mickey Mouse soft social non-subjects to boost exam results and further erode the last scintilla of academic rigour in the sorry State education system.

Now why would any government want its subjects to be geographically and historically ignorant I wonder?
