Then why are the standards lowering? It doesn't matter how applicable to the business world the education system is at all. The status of the business world has no bearing on how well a kindergardener learns the ABCs, how an 8th grader writes a paper, or how a highschool senior places on the SATs. They once could adhere to a higher standard and now they can't. Why?All of your above post has proved my point. The current and former education system wasnt intended to educate, it was to create "good workers". Ones that would never challange the authority of their "superiors".
What is this supposed connection between a "good worker" of 50 years ago and a "good worker" today, in a world consumed by information technology, that makes kids score lower on the same, or even lesser, tests? You suggest a cause and effect relationship as to why students are doing poorly but I don't see one. All you seem to do is say there is a problem that was once not here (lowered standards), and when it wasn't here X was different, so changing of X must be the cause.
