yes, we're uneducated because we discard irrelevant information learned in our teens in order to pass memorize-then-purge-the-information classroom tests and fill the void with relevant information that is useful and important to daily living
if you wanna slam a majority of americans for being uneducated, do it because most couldn't fill out a blank map of our 50 states. Do it because basic financial concepts (loans, stocks, etc.) completely baffle people. Do it because, despite living in this country, most don't have any idea how our government is setup. Do it because most don't even come close to having a basic grasp of physics.
But don't do it because we don't care about retaining irrelevant information like who Cicero is. Life isn't a jeopardy episode.
(you may have been giving verno a hard time, I'm more or less just speaking generally here though)
