I keep getting told by my parents how we grow up learning so much less than they have when they were growing up in the soviet union. Is our education really so inferior? I've attended top schools my entire life (until college) and I don't really think it's fair to say that I'm necessarily stupid. My main two questions are pretty much this: Is our education really getting that worse over time? Is American education really as bad as Michael Moore makes it seem? Or are we just being pushed in a sense to be even smarter?
