American Children Are Strangers In A Strange Land
Public schools said goodbye to teaching knowledge, hello to social engineering. Kids grow up ignorant and empty, feeling like foreigners in their own country.
The Education Establishment has managed to separate the country's children from the country. A secret quarantine is in effect; children have been consigned to live in detached bubbles. To a degree rarely seen in history, children are exiles in their own country.

You could alter the hairstyle, do a little photo retouching, and all the children would look like the children at the time of the Revolution. Nothing has changed. In appearances, that is.
Inwardly, everything is changed. American children wander forlornly in an alien landscape they know little about and understand less. They have no history, no geography, no math, no science. They've been taught to dislike their country. Instead of knowledge, they've learned detachment and sarcasm, indifference and boredom. They've been systematically deprived of the skills and perspectives that would allow them to enjoy culture or navigate intellectual pursuits.
They are inside the society but curiously outside. Separated from it in the way that a neighborhood's birds and rabbits exist separately from the humans in the neighborhood.
