I propose a better answer. How about:
The lack of adult leadership/participation and focused schooling that is the current tread in early childhood education which deemphasizes the need to teach kids academics in their formative years, may be a major contributor to our failing educational system. A system that is overly focused on kids doing what *they* want to do in lieu of learning proven valuable academic lessons, will surly result in a society of adults who cannot locate their own country on a world map. Quite possibly too much 'play' and not enough 'work' is contributing to the stupidity of Americans.
Having said that...she'd get my vote. ;o)
