As a retired educator, I'm beginning to think we have failed to teach several generations of students.

Look at our current political landscape. We clearly have millions of former students who lack critical thinking skills, lack the ability to separate fact, opinion and lies, lack the ability to respectfully discuss and debate issues and who believe whatever they hear or read without question!

Sadly, we have a president who is using these weaknesses to his advantage!
