So You're a Millenial? Get A Refund From Your School

Egads.  Some of these people are voters.  The rest WILL be voters.

...This exam, given in 23 countries, assessed the thinking abilities and workplace skills of adults. It focused on literacy, math and technological problem-solving. The goal was to figure out how prepared people are to work in a complex, modern society.

And U.S. millennials performed horribly.

That might even be an understatement, given the extent of the American shortcomings. No matter how you sliced the data – by class, by race, by education – young Americans were laggards compared to their international peers. In every subject, U.S. millennials ranked at the bottom or very close to it, according to a new study by testing company ETS.
...--quoted at Vox

Millennials are somewhere between 12 and 35 years of age.

God help us.
