Required standardized testing is a major factor in eliminating critical thinking from schools.


So they claim that before that they were succeeding?

The No Child Left Behind was passed in 2002. And it took several years to be implemented. And it did not initially include Science regardless (it was math and reading.)

But even being generous a 35 year old now would have been 15 in 2002. So little or no impact from that on their learning.

A couple science teachers I know lament how "teaching to the test" ties their hands.



Perhaps ask them how then then explain that 22% of those 35 and older believe that Bigfoot is real? See the following link. (look for the age chart)

U.S. Belief in Sasquatch Has Risen Since 2020 - CivicScience[^]

And how do they explain that those that believe in that, in that age group, have increased significantly in the past couple of years? Seems like if anything, the prior educational experience, before that testing, specifically did not teach critical thinking. Or did a really poor job of it.

The magazines Skeptical Inquirer and/or Skeptic have done multiple articles on this. And one conclusion is that Finlad schools do a good job. And they do so because they specifically teach critical thinking. Not science itself but critical thinking itself.
