American Kids Got DUMBER Under Obama

Written by Robert Gehl


Schoolchildren in America got dumber under President Obama, according to a group that ranks exam scores worldwide.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development produces an exam administered every three years to 15-year olds in 72 countries.

The exam tests reading, math and science knowledge.

The results? American schoolkids saw an 11-point drop in math and flatline scores for reading and science, Fox News is reporting.

For the first time, Obama’s America fell below the average set by the OECD and failed to crack the top ten in any of the categories.

As it stands now, according to the results, thanks to Barack Obama and his failed education policies, children in the Slovak Republic are better in math than Americans are.

So what were Barack Obama’s disastrous education policies? Or, is it possible, that in many cases, school districts, and schoolchildren, rise and fall regardless what the policy is from bureaucrats in Washington?

Barack Obama opposed private school vouchers – where parents receive taxpayer dollars to send their children to schools that are succeeding. Donald Trump has said he supports then.

Obama’s Education department was obsessed with making sure African American students and other students of color did not receive harsher punishments or reprimands than other school kids.

The Progressives have been all over our education system for a long time and done a lot of damage in their effort to create Stepford people who cannot think for themselves but engage in the groupthink the progressive propaganda feeds them. Thankfully we still have free thinkers in this country (actually more than I thought), so we may turn this around yet.
