    Hmm, spelling and math, not so much, but throw in sex education, biology, history, and physical sciences, and you’ve got a lot of “religious conservative” home schoolers right here at home.

    In the last few decades, it has become increasingly clear that humanity is facing a crisis of unprecedented proportions. Modern science has developed effective measures that could solve most of the urgent problems in today’s world—combat the majority of diseases, eliminate hunger and poverty, reduce the amount of industrial waste, and replace destructive fossil fuels by renewable sources of clean energy. The problems that stand in the way are not of economical or technological nature. The deepest sources of the global crisis lie inside the human personality and reflect the level of consciousness evolution of our species.

    Sounds very smart. Research dark matter. You can make it sound very smart but there’s no real proof yet. History is filled w lots of science that didn’t pass muster.

    This is not about science it’s about equality. Even the Koran doesn’t support boko haram social planning

    When I see all the violence and stupidity in the world, I find it amazing the human race has lasted as long as it has.

    Radical religion fears education. There’s opposition to scientific education within developed nations and democracies. Now that is odd.
    Wasn’t there a Christian parable that mentioned a beam in one’s eye….?

    Yep. Check George Will and Charles Krauthammer’s recent diatribe against climate science. Since they can’t accept the results (because it would mean that they’ve been wrong), nor can they deny the data (because it’s overwhelming), Will attacks scientists for being shills and sellouts without challenging a single conclusion; and Krauthammer insists that ALL science is bogus and useless at making predictions. Our own Boko Haram, right here in America.

    @omQ Release the Desaparecidos

    I intended to make the same point, omQ.
    Where the USA once lead the world in the quality of education, it seems that ever since Pres. Eisenhower warned it would take an informed and educated electorate to stand up to the Military Industrial complex (his draft included the word Congressional) there has been a slow de-emphasis on education to a point that we, as a nation, are far behind others in primary and secondary school education, and our colleges are doing better at educating foreign nationals who take their knowledge back home, than they do for Americans.
    If this hypothesis is correct, and if there has been a deliberate plan to ‘dumb down’ Americans, it is working. We are more divided and more willing to jump at hype than to take time to learn the facts and the science. Education is the answer to many of our problems, and that is why lobbyists and politicians would just prefer we stay stupid.
    Sadly,
    but Respectfully,

    Wow, I came here to say that it needs to be in the hands of Women and girls alike in those countries! The men only use it to make bombs!
    But then you loony liberals go and equat Muslims to Climate Heretics and Christians? What is next, home schoolers?
    What is even sadder when a loony liberals religion is flawed science and they try to use it politically!

    But yet Loony liberals want to use this as proof they need to be in charge. They need to be the ones to collect the money to absolve our sin of CO2.
    They also miss the simple message in a comic strip. That being with basic instruction that the masses do not get in the muslim world and that goes double for girls and women, but with basic fundamental skills of simply reading and writing a person, female, can empower them self! Leading to a revolution! There is a reason those RADICAL ISLAMIC MUSLIMS targeted a school house of little girls.
    Oh wait Mrs. Clinton could not even be bothered to put them on the terrorist watch list and NBC still will not say the Radical Muslim part. Denial?

    @Respectful Troll

    But here is the problem, whose “facts” do you use? This strip is about teaching the basics. I would point out that it is the females that get the least amount of education in most Muslim States. And it is the basics that is needed.
    When you say here? The State is only responsible to lay out a path in order for a person to follow. If the person does not want to learn in this country, well that is a choice. Unlike say in Nigeria or other Islamic country’s where you can have a religious leader get on a bus and shoot little girls.
    And here, well, You have the ability to be educated up to the point where you can be a good little idiot for the masses. You can not according to most liberals be an individual who say wants to read the bible at school. You must be indoctrinated to the liberal way or nothing. And if you do not believe in the “science” of say global warming, or being “diverse” in making sure Christians are shut out over any and no religion, well then you are nothing but a hater.
