Hot Blog Post Of The Day: Ignorant Youth

This one’s going around like wildfire: University prof points out that a significant number of his students think Iraq blew up the World Trade Center.

I wonder if these constant “oh shit, our youth are ignorant” surprises are a way for grownups to feel better about themselves, or if undergrads really are that dumb.

  1. It’s not undergrads who are that dumb. It’s people. People are that dumb. As someone who has devoted his professional life to trying to give people tools to be less dumb, this has been a painful realization. They are apparently not using the tools I have on offer. It’s my fault! Better tools!
