FP blames American high school Lit. teachers for lowering the standards because:

  • they lack passion

  • they sacrifice complexity for diversity; they constantly lower ‘’the educational bar’’

  • they make mediocre choices: they do not choose works of merit

  • some of them have stopped teaching Lit. altogether and replaced it by teaching what was already done in civics or ethics classes

  • they have stopped to believe in their students’ capacities; by giving their boring classes, they prevent students from developing their infinite capacities and a deeper understanding of ‘’complexities of human experience’’.

FP blames these educational methods for their inability to teach students to think, and therefore, for turning all our high school students into McDonald’s employees.
