Dumb and dumber

This story is pretty scary about students' ignorance of civil liberties.

Lefties will paint this as either a story about red state Hitler youth, or about lack of funding for education. The truth, however, is that the problem with civics education is much the same as the problem with mathematics and reading and writing education: it is controlled by greedy teachers' unions that care more about preserving their own power than improving education.

I'd like to see whether non-union schools' students understand civil liberties better. I bet they do.
