    I'd happily provide statistics if that helps.

    America's educational attainment is typified these days by the White House Comedian, Sean Spicer. I can offer examples there too.

    That would help.

    Not that it matters.

    My problem is with not so much the video, but it's application to the entire USA. The cry iilliteracy is a crisis.

    By what measure? When did it start? If it always was, why now a crisis?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Excuse me for asking but..............How old are you Dawg ?
    I am trying to answer your question about when the crisis began. In your short post there are two(2) errors................knowing when you were in school might be able to pinpoint the start of this crisis.

    I said that for comedy affect, you seem to like my puns.
    But what would you call it when education professionals, or employers, or school leavers..........fail to educate....or.....fail to find literate staff to employ......or fail to read and write enough to advance their lives ?.......in that order.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    It was Unreported World which said education in the USA is in crisis. My posts may be short, but so was the UW story which is no longer available.

    So there is a problem in Detroit. Detroit is not a small city. Is the YOUTUBE example representative of the whole city, much less the state?

    I dunno.
