When you think of a day care, what images pop into your head? Do you see animated little children playing with lettered blocks, mini locomotives, finger paint, and puzzles while frolicking around a brightly-painted room? Do you imagine all the butterflies and rainbows and unicorns and fluffy stuff? What is that's not the whole story? What if, beneath the surface, something darker looms and waits to prey upon the ignorant? What if there was someone infiltrating American education to purposely create the next Hitler or Stalin or Marx?
Parents work and leave their children to people they"ve met all of a few times at PTA meetings, etc. Some parents have never met the school"s staff at all? Public education in America has fallen to its lowest heights. You might say that SAT scores and college acceptance rates have gone up, but in comparison to what exactly?
Take a simple third grade level test from the 1800s. I bet you"d fail " most people would. What does that say about society as a whole today? You"ve heard of the show "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?" right? Some people can"t even modern fifth grade level questions right! Sure, make the excuse that you haven"t reviewed in a while. If you really know your stuff, it should be near impossible to forget.
What happened? Someone must be doing something if education has gone this far down the drain. They are out there. They will pounce " whether you like it " or whether you know it. America is letting this happen. They are dumbing us down to destroy us all. For all we know, people in the highest positions in America"s government could be tearing down everything the nation stands right under our noses. And it all starts from day care.

I was with you, but how does making people dumb cause marxism or commmunism or nazism or fascism?

Oh boy, how many times do I have to explain this -- SAT scores CAN'T go up! And if they do, it's purely the choice of the college boards. SAT scores are essentially a percentile.

I've read that these socialistic concepts and people who promote in have sneaked into our educational system in order to take us down from the inside. If we get "dumbed down" while they remain "in the loop," it can become much easier to fool us into their idealistic traps and mind games.

Looking at history and current events deep enough, certain things start to pop up, especially if you know what you're looking for.

I, personally, think it's happening without the public's notice.
