'Your' Dumb—But 'Your' Confident!

"Students are the product of a decades-long, therapeutic educational culture in which personal self-esteem is privileged over knowledge, coherence of expression and academic integrity. Their chutzpah is the logical conclusion to a pre-university lifetime of reassurance from teachers that everything they said or wrote was 'creative,' even if it was full of objective mistakes."
And now for $17, you too can display the results of a generation schooled in the "Johnny and Susie can do no wrong" mentality. An "F" in spelling? Heavens, no, it might hurt their feelings! Now, nationwide retailers are bearing the brunt of our high-esteem, low-learning education system.
