I just have no words for this type of stupidity. It used to be that young people were taught how to think now they're just mirroring what they hear around them without thinking about it critically.

Is this the effect of affirmative action on campus', where people who score lower on the SAT's are let in?

Is this a failure of the parents or teachers?

Thoughts?

Not only is the SAT not really required anymore, they made the test much easier. 
The university I went to had high STANDARDS.. but they were not enforced! 
Even though I had extremely high SAT scores, they forced all incoming students to take the universities OWN placement test.. which is why I was able to start taking junior level engineering classes in my freshman year.  (that did not work out that well because at least one engineering teacher HATED having a 17 year old that looked 14 years old sitting in his class of people in their 20's.  I have to add an interesting thing about that class... everyone had to share a drafting table with another student... The guy I sat next to me in that class was 27 years old, and was an army veteran.  He was extremely quiet, and the instructor would nearly do that guy's work for him while completely ignoring my questions.  Despite sitting next to the guy for 4 hours a week for a semester, he completely ignored me outside of the classroom when I would see him on campus.  Just one year later, I heard his name on television.  He went into a building on campus, strangled a secretary to death, and sodomized her butt after she was dead.  This was witnessed by 3 students through the small glass window in the office door.  They thought they were watching some kinky sex.  He is in prison and will never be released.. which is GOOD in his case, however, from a LEGAL standpoint, that is a bit harsh.  He had no prior record, was not a violent person (although serving in the army must have required him to do some aggressive things).  So much for being insane!   Florida is famous for very long sentences, executions, etc.  They have the same public defenders for capital 1st degee murderers working on things like petty shoplifting and trespassing charges.  )
About 1/3 of the students admitted to the college had to do 1 year of non-credit remedial courses.  They failed to learn to reed, ryte, and do rithmetic in hye skool. 

Honesty, college is a waste of time for almost everybody these days.  There is not much need for educated people in society anymore, especially since the computer age.  The medical field is one of the few vocations that REQUIRE a college degree, but even then, most medical functions could be done by just about anybody trained to do that one specific function.   Train some people to do dressings.. some to do injections, some to do liposuction, some to do colonoscopies, some to do catheders, some to do CAT scans / MRI,  some to take X-rays, some to administer anesthesia, some to do LASIK / PRK,  some to do EKGs, etc.   Most people think that doctors are super smart and knowledgeable.. WRONG.   Some people also believe that cops are hard working, brave, and honest.. hahaa!  He He
