The Struggle For Stupidity

Bill Whittle recently stumbled upon a 100-year-old sixth grade textbook titled Literature Reader: Sixth Year, by Leroy E. Armstrong, a compilation of written tales and their analyses, basic literature and story structure. But amazingly, Whittle says, a passage from the California textbook would probably elude most college students today.

“That’s what sixth graders were reading 100 years ago in 1914, but if a college student graduated today with a full and complete grasp of that one single paragraph, they’d probably be better educated than they are today after a quarter-million dollars or so of student debt.” Whittle elaborates on what he calls the progressive struggle for stupidity in this edition of “Firewall” on Truth Revolt.
