Not in my experience. Ignorance in America s usually self-imposed by failing to even pay attention in required classes, then by not pursuing information independently.It is the concealment of information that gives one man an educational advantage over another;
The amount of information available to anybody with a computer and an Internet connection is staggering.
You don't seem to understand the difference between educated and intelligent. You need to expose yourself to knowledge to acquire it. You might even have to study. That educates you. It enhances your fund of knowledge.if all men were exposed to the same education, all men would be "intelligent" as such.
Intelligence has more to do with processing knowledge and problem solving - analysis. That includes induction - extracting useful generalizations from that knowledge in order to better apply it to solving future situation specific problems.
LOL. Is that why you haven't learned about evolution yet? You've been looking for your night's dinner?The only thing you can be proud of is the fact that you have been able to go to school while other men cant find their nights dinner..
