1 in 4 Americans unaware that Earth circles Sun

Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday.

The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.

Ten questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score -- 6.5 correct -- was barely a passing grade.

Just 74 percent of respondents knew that the Earth revolved around the Sun, according to the results released at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago.

Fewer than half (48 percent) knew that human beings evolved from earlier species of animals.
Oy vey. America is well served by her edumcashoon systems.

Why study the movement of the planets and stars when you have such "science" as the following article to study?

I don't know. It's Detroit. As such, it is probably a 100% exact description of life there.

You can tell which would actually be helpful for solving the problem - the left and the teachers unions fight it tooth and nail.

Can't have kids actually getting knowledge, they wouldn't grow up to dutifully vote democrat.

All those programs are placebos for The Issue Which Cannot Be Named.

In education, even big government is actually placebo for the Issue That Cannot Be Named.

The issue can be named, you don't have to mask.

Well, fine. Be my guest. Go to your friendly neighbourhood school board and tell them that the reason US education is now officially trailing Zimbabwe is that filling the nation's schools with imported and home-grown savages while the remnants of the white population huddle ever more desperately in their gated communities will invariably lead to a generation of dysfunctional ignoramuses.

Report back on your finding about how this issue can be named. I'll wait with baited breath.

Everything you mention there falls into the "Big Government" category, working hand and hand with the corrupt teacher's unions.
