George Carlin on Dumbing Down America

In honor of the great George Carlin, here's his take on education in America.
Show this to all kids who are thinking of boycotting a test.


  1. I say, we don't need any further dumbing down. By the way, old chap, I'd like to thank you and all the Bootless and Unhorsed who will be subsidizing the Smellington Academy, a revolutionary charter school that should open in 09.

    We will be providing lodging for teachers in our basement, feeding them in our cafeteria, and seeing to all their needs in the Company Store.

    I say, must dash. Muffy and the poolboy seem to have locked themselves in the boardroom again, and are making some otherworldly noises in there.

  2. Love this clip and really enjoyed his wit and candor.
