      Frankly, people don't need the "education" we get today to be a productive member of the society.
      In fact, people develope their skills more and better while working.
      This shitshow all began with the industrial revoltion and banning of child labor.
      Now we are stuck with a bunch of grown ups with useless degrees and no skills, and almost 1/4 way through their lifespan.

        Agreed. The biggest disappointment of my life was realizing that after graduating college I had no life skills nor job skills, and that my diploma was nothing more than a way of filtering out morons. I went through four years of pretending to learn so that HR people could put me in a 'we'll consider it' stack.

    the internet is still the best source of human knowledge out there, and if you have access to it, ignorance is outright a choice. there should be no pity given to those who throw away gifts like these.

          The internet as we know will never teach kids how to use it by itself.
          This burden relies on their parents and school (I know, schools are laughable but still)
          if the kids don't know how the frick internet works, they will never have the drive to use it in a different way than to consume slop.

          I'd say that there should be a kickstart of some sort to teach them that

          An excerpt from the pdf:
          Criterion 5, Band description text, assessed the accuracy with which students replicated the text describing the band from the email students were provided as part of the task (see Figure 3.8) on to the band webpage. The text could be copied and pasted or (somewhat less efficiently) transcribed from the email to the page. Full credit was awarded on this criterion only when the band description text on the webpage exactly matched that in the email. Students who included the signoff message in the email (“Thanks a lot!”) received no credit for this criterion, as the signoff message was deemed to be irrelevant to the webpage. On average across all countries, 27 percent of students achieved full credit on this criterion.

          Level 3 in that chart is (I'm paraphrasing) you being able to find all e-mails sent by John Doe from six to three months ago that pertain to environmental issues.
          Level 2 was being able to only find e-mails by John Doe.

          Yes, ladies and gentlemen, if you know how to use your e-mail client's search feature and know how to set it to limit to emails sent by John Doe in a specific timeframe, you are smarter and more competent than 90% of the people out there, at least on computers.

            Watering down the employment age cohort with huge swathes of immigrants took away the social status inherent in having skills while simultaneously removing all of the financial and material benefits. People aren't even finding marriages, religion, or communities of like-minded people to devote time and effort to outside of carefully curated online bubbles like Discord groups.

            Basically, people garnered and cultivated skills in ages past for status, money and women, and we're no longer allowed to have status, money and women by getting educated and getting a job.

            You can have status, money and women by becoming a TikToker or Youtube Influencer though, so those are the only jobs anybody wants.

        You're not. Millennials are moronic. They're also the ones raising kids now. Shouldn't be hard to see how this ends.

    I would not educate them because the job market is dog shit and the less competition the better
    actually I would educate them in law and national socialist doctrine so that they might come to power and bring an end to H1B visas and deport all the pajeets and chinks in order to lower competition even more

    The exact same classes I had and that were useless to me except that you do the test first to see who needs it.

      Or also, zoomers who wanted to play with friends without paying Minecraft and zoomers who bought it.

    Retro 90s computer classes where you “ironically” learn all the basic things like power point, word, telnet, windows movie maker, etc

    >How would you educate the newer generations, IQfy?
    I would not. Keep them on Minecraft unless you are into grooming.

    Gen Z can do things with their phones that baffle the older generations. To me, a phone is pretty much useless for anything other than watching YouTube. But Gen Z can actually use it for productivity tasks some how.

    its all because of those damn phones. probably why the internet is in the sad state it's in now because everything has to be made for the phone format and that automatically hinders discussion and the amount of information that can be shared. tiktok is popular because watching a video is easier than typing or reading text on a tiny ass screen.

    not everyone should operate gadgets. the fewer 70IQ morons on the internet the better.
    also, it should be a criminal offence to let a child use a smartphone or tablet or social media.
    also, most social media should be banned.

    >minecraft mentioned
    One would think redstorne helps with instilling logical thinking in the zoomzooms.
    It's not a big a leap from there to actual programming.

      logic circuits are moron proof, but they're still active components that needs a power source.

    Why is there such a gap between older zoomers and younger zoomers? Most people my age don't sound exactly like how most of these articles describe them as.

      generations are an incredibly loose group, how you turn out depends on a ton of things, with when you were born only being one small component of it
