Campus Reform, a project of the Leadership Institute, is a conservative watchdog of the nation’s colleges and universities, which exposes bias, abuse, waste, and fraud on the country’s campuses.
In this video, titled, “Were American Students Smarter 100 years ago?” they ask students at Denver’s Metropolitan State University general knowledge questions given to 8th graders 100 years ago, reprinted by Smithsonian Magazine earlier this month.
When one was asked the requirements to be president, he replied, “To be president you have to have a high school diploma, you have to be at least 25 years of age, that’s what I know.”
By the video’s end, it’s apparent that if the students 100 years ago weren’t smarter, they were certainly a heck of a lot better informed.
