Dumb and dumber: why we’re getting less intelligent

Oliver Moody @ The Times

The IQ scores of young people have begun to fall after rising steadily since the Second World War, according to the first authoritative study of the phenomenon. The decline, which is equivalent to at least seven points per generation, is thought to have started with the cohort born in 1975, who reached adulthood in the early Nineties.

Scientists say that the deterioration could be down to changes in the way maths and languages are taught, or to a shift from reading books to spending time on television and computers.

Yet it is also possible that the nature of intelligence is changing in the digital age and cannot be captured with traditional IQ tests. The turning point marks the end of a well-known but poorly understood.

My Take - Do they really believe this drop it's because they don't know how to properly test for IQ in the digital age?  Here's an example of why the IQ is dropping.  College Kids Say Christian Baker Should Make Gay Wedding Cake, Change Their Tune When Situation is Altered. These kids are not being taught, they're being indoctrinated with leftist flatulence. Teachers have become nothing short of leftist propagandists that would have made every socialist dictator that ever lived proud. And the reason why is because you can't promote leftism if you properly teach kids how to read, write, and most importantly - history. They've failed these kids, their parents and society. But they're a grand success at promoting left wing propaganda. There are a number of things that are anathema to the leftists controlling education in America today. A solid moral foundation, facts, history and consistency of thought.
