In sum, enlisted military members are better educated, get higher test scores, and come from higher socioeconomic backgrounds than their similarly aged peers in society.

Selection effects have a lot to do with these differences. The military recruits young people who are particularly bright and fit. They tend to perform better."
Good find! See, this is another example that facts don't care about your feelings.

And on the flip side, a CO phys-ed teacher (older lady) *allegedly* assaulted a middle school kid for not standing for the pledge of allegiance (Bellamy Salute excluded, of course).

Quote:
Police are investigating the alleged attack by Karen Smith, a physical education teacher at Angevine Middle School in the Boulder Valley School District, according to the report. Lafayette police Cmdr. Brian Rosipajla indicated that officers responded to the school around noon on Thursday, following reports that a teacher was assaulting a child for refusing to stand for the pledge.
Another mind controlled 'Super-Patriot' - Post Revolutionary War school children from 1783 to 1892 (109 years), had no idea what a pledge of allegiance was. In 1892, Benjamin Harrison was losing the election to Cleveland, so in June he authorized the 'money grab' (by Daniel Sharp Ford) that was selling flags and the 'Youth's Companion' magazine to every school in the country, with Bellamy (a Socialist) and Upham - to commemorate Columbus at that, LOL. There's your "pledge"
