Sorry to be the one to break it to you, but if you thought the decline in educational standards was driven by cultural factors, you were wrong. It’s UN policy: [my emphasis added]
“Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes. In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.
Unfortunately, the most educated nations leave the deepest ecological footprints, meaning they have the highest per-capita rates of consumption. This consumption drives resource extraction and manufacturing around the world. The figures from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Statistical Yearbook and World Education Report, for example, show that in the United States more than 80 percent of the population has some post-secondary education, and about 25 percent of the population has a four-year degree from a university. Statistics also show that per-capita energy use and waste generation in the United States are nearly the highest in the world. In the case of the United States, more education has not led to sustainability.”

If you think that not being in America might protect you from this – remember this is UN policy, and the UN is intended to become the one-world government one day soon.
What can you do? If you can’t home school, at least pay attention to teaching your kids how to think – how to question and how to research things they don’t know. Teach them somehow, any way you can, to be life-long learners. Help them find the joy in learning, whether it’s book based or practical learning they are best at.
