As Radical Left Continues to Dominate Education, American IQs Fall for First Time in 100 Years

A new study finds that American IQs have fallen for the first time in 100 years as the extreme left continues to undermine our children with its a stranglehold on America’s educational system.

For a century, American IQs have shown a steady rise. But that has finally come to an end as our system of education continues to spiral into the joke of the modern world.

The recent study comes from the journal Intelligence, which measured IQ test results among 18- to 60-year-olds.

According to Liberty Unyielding, the “Flynn Effect” has finally come to an end.

Professors from Northwestern University and the University of Oregon explain the Flynn effect: starting in 1932, average IQs rose around three to five points per decade. In other words, “younger generations” were “expected to have higher IQ scores than the previous cohort.”

Recent data from American adults, however, find a reverse Flynn effect. From 2006 to 2018, they generally experienced declines in the IQ test used by the study, the International Cognitive Ability Resource (ICAR).

All age groups had overall declines, after controlling for educational attainment and gender, but the loss in cognitive abilities was sharper for the youngest age cohort. “The greatest differences in annual scores were observed for 18- to 22-year-olds,” the study observed.

Exposure to education seemed to mitigated the loss of IQ points somewhat. But not for the youngest age group. “Exposure to education may only be protective for certain age groups,” suggested the authors of the study.

They hypothesize that “a change of quality or content of education and test-taking skills” may explain the differential impact of education on the IQs of younger versus older Americans.

Americans have become dumber starting with the Millennials.

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Math has declined, reading is non-existent, vocabularies have shrunk, knowledge of history, civics and geography have evaporated.

Thanks, teachers unions. Thanks, Democrats. Thanks, woke liberals.
