A Princeton research group has tested “Millennials” – that’s the generation born after 1980 – across the developed world and found that Americans are at the bottom – often in last place – in terms of needed skills for the modern workplace.
I can’t find the actual data, but here is a brief write-up from Fortune Magazine:
We hear about the superior tech savvy of people born after 1980 so often that we tend to assume it must be true. But is it?
Researchers at Princeton-based Educational Testing Service (ETS) expected it to be when they administered a test called the Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC). Sponsored by the OECD, the test was designed to measure the job skills of adults, aged 16 to 65, in 23 countries.
When the results were analyzed by age group and nationality, ETS got a shock. It turns out, says a new report, that Millennials in the U.S. fall short when it comes to the skills employers want most: literacy (including the ability to follow simple instructions), practical math, and — hold on to your hat — a category called “problem-solving in technology-rich environments.”
Not only do Gen Y Americans lag far behind their overseas peers by every measure, but they even score lower than other age groups of Americans.
Take literacy, for instance. American Millennials scored lower than their counterparts in every country that participated except Spain and Italy. (Japan is No. 1.) In numeracy, meaning the ability to apply basic math to everyday situations, Gen Yers in the U.S. ranked dead last.
Okay, but what about making smart use of technology, where Millennials are said to shine? Again, America scored at the bottom of the heap, in a four-way tie for last place with the Slovak Republic, Ireland, and Poland.
Even the best-educated Millennials stateside couldn’t compete with their counterparts in Japan, Finland, South Korea, Belgium, Sweden, or elsewhere. With a master’s degree, for example, Americans scored higher in numeracy than peers in just three countries: Ireland, Poland, and Spain. Altogether, the top U.S. Gen Yers, in the 90th percentile, “scored lower than their counterparts in 15 countries,” the report notes, “and only scored higher than their peers in Spain.”
That doesn’t list the actual countries involved in the study, but it is obviously the developed world.
This corresponds with other testing in schools, so I’m not sure why Princeton was surprised.
There are multiple things going on here. First, our “Millennial” generation is significantly less White (or yellow) than the corresponding populations in Europe. This not only means that the average IQ is brought down by the Blacks and browns, but that the entire education system is brought down by having to cater to these hordes.
Beyond that, America is ground-zero for the rapidly intensifying Jewing the whole world is experiencing. America is significantly more decadent and depraved that the rest of the developed world, and due to this, White Americans tend to be much less intelligent than White Europeans. That is just simply a sad fact of life, which even as an American, I must admit. Though often more liberal, in terms of actual knowledge and general proficiency, there is no White country that is lower than America.
One unique difference is the American University system, which is so focused on alcohol, sex and sports. Other countries simply don’t do things this way. People in Europe generally live with their parents when they go to college, or in apartments, not these binge-drinking party houses. Due to this American tradition creating an environment which is nigh completely incompatible with education, universities have been forced to lower their standards.
I don’t really have any positive slant to add to this, save that while being generally more dumb than the rest of the world, we also have some of the world’s greatest minds, such as Andrew Anglin, the publisher of the Daily Stormer. No, seriously, we still do dominate in terms of influence because we do have a minority of people who are just better than anything else the rest of the world has to offer, but the average remains abysmally low.
The obvious solution is to eject Jews and non-Whites. Then the education system will basically fix itself. Being dumb is an unnatural state for a White society, and it is taking an extreme amount of force to hold us in this position.
