Funny how half of these "All Together Now" threads always end up becoming Beatles-related! (I'm as much to blame as anybody, I know, obviously, gratuitously inserting a picture of John Lennon with prominent "Safe As Milk" decals into my Captain Beefheart thread, for one thing...)

I liked "That Thing You Do" too - just wished they'd played the title song less than two dozen times during the course of the film.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

You're certainly right about the lack of education, or interest really, when it comes to history among the younger generation. The problem is that we've been given these tools to make learning easier, calculators, the internet, TV, etc., but rather than helping, those tools basically erase curiosity because history is just taken at base value. We accept answers without questioning them and so our education is based off of memorization rather than critical thinking. I went to a public high school and I can tell you that I was pretty unprepared when I went to college, but now, only a few years later, it's even worse because there are entire classes devoted to giving the answers to the graduation tests now needed. Think about that, an entire class devoted to just giving away the answers versus actually teaching, but as long as graduation rates go up or stay about the same no one will really care because it will be seen as "progress." It's a joke and the worst part of it is that these people who receive these "educations" have no idea of how ignorant and uneducated they really are because of how bad their education was. Their education was so bad that they have no way of realizing how bad it really was, it's genius really from the perspective of those who are keeping the population under control with these awful educations.

The only way our education system has any chance of improving is if grammar, logic and rhetoric, or the trivium, are taught in our schools.
