American education standards and quality declined sharply during the 1960s and 1970s along with a new, “politically correct” emphasis on social-racial equality. SAT scores fell sharply, and have remained low ever since. Younger Americans perform much less well than northern Europeans and east Asians on international achievement tests. The 2002 “No Child Left Behind” law, enacted with broad bi-partisan political support, is (predictably) proving to be an ever more obvious failure, in spite of enormous outlays of money. Such wasteful and irresponsible programs are based on America’s prevailing egalitarian-individualistic ideology. Because this guiding outlook is based on false premises about life, society and history, programs and policies based on it are doomed to failure.
