taurusowner: Throughout all of human history, the amount of people who were "smart" has been pretty small with the rest of us performing menial labor. For the last 100 years we've gotten to the point where we are actually capable of attempting to school entire populations. And I think we're seeing that it's not working. Just like not everyone actually belongs in college, not everyone has what it takes to really learn. For whatever reason, there's just a lot of people out there who are almost meant to be idiots, and the more we see this in practice, the more hoops we jump through to try to make all of the idiot square pegs to fit into the smart round holes. Not everyone is capable of being a doctor or lawyer. In the past, everyone else would just be a farmer or some other simple job. But now that we've automated most everything, we're discovering we have a lot more imbeciles than we know what to do with.

Mine was a couple semesters ago. ADHD is the new name for ADD.
