statistics can be manipulated according to one’s own bias quite easily
and the so called indicators of societal health are beyond suspect.

divorce rates are low because people are shaking up and women are choosing single motherhood over stable two parent relationships

is it really good for society when a large portion of society is currently ingesting anti-depressants?

sure you can lower high school drop out rates when the curriculum is dumbed down and students with failing grades are still issued diplomas

the chinese also thought things were great under Mao when 60million people starved to death... do not believe the hype

Of course and even more so when college graduates are incapable of passing a tenth grade final exam from a public school circa 1960. I am serious when I write this, it is no joke, we would have a real need for only a tiny percentage of the current number of university classrooms if K-12 education was anything like what it used to be.
