Stupid Meme

This meme appeared on Facebook page for something called National Liberty Federation, a page that specializes in racist, misleading, and outright stupid images.

That is a stupid meme on many levels. First, government doesn’t educate our children. Schools do, and they are run locally. Secondly, there is nothing wrong with having educational standards so some districts can’t decide to teach that the Earth is flat and history never happened. Third, by facilitating public education, our society could in no better way invest in our future. An educated citizenry is the most valuable resource any civilization will ever have.
