Check out these social studies questions from Wisconsin--theoretically one of the top five states in the nation for educational achievement. It's supposed to be a test on recognizing different political movements, but really ought to be named "how to stereotype and ignore the real issues."
One would figure that teachers would at least get their own political persuasion right, instead of a pitiful caricature, but apparently not. And one would also figure that a teacher who had spent some time in Madison during college ought at least to quote Marx correctly in questions about Marxism, but that dream is dashed on the hard rocks of reality (near Superior I believe, or perhaps in the Dells) as well.
If that's as good as public education gets, I think I'll keep homeschooling, thank you very much.
