The following is a satire article I wrote for bowdownbefore.us.

The U.S. congress has decided to take a new tactic to fight global terrorism - Education. The upcoming anti-terror education bill will change the way schools in the U.S. are run, and lobby the rest of the world to do the same. "We're trying to make the world safe from terrorism. If the rest of the world adopts our public education system, then we can make the populace too stupid to do any real damage".

The new bill plans to make testing standards consistent with the wide range of students taking those test. "We want to give tests that don't discriminate based on race, socioeconomic status, or education level".

Will this have a real impact on global terrorism? Unfortunately, at the time of writing, no qualified expert was available to answer this question.
