Michael Moore in his popular essay, “Idiot Nation” that comes from the book Stupid White Men and other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation, discourses on how our political system, lifestyles, and technology are the reason for our country's becoming so idiotic. Nevertheless, he believes that the educational system is suffering the most. Moore accentuates how ignorant the President and politicians are by stating that the President cannot simply identify whether Africa is a nation or a continent
us Americans are unwise. The United States is becoming much more stupid than any other country through the lack of priorities in our education system. The problem we face today are the amount of illiterate people walking amongst us. In Michael Moore’s Idiot Nation, he informs the reader with shocking statistics about how unintelligent us students really are. The problem with our education system is the political leaders pay difference to teachers, school funding problems, and corporate funding.
