If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Shouldn't this be in the TV forum?

I would unfortunately have to say that I am one of those people who knows more about the Simpsons than the Constitution and all that, but that doesn’t make me dumb. Actually, I’m well above average intelligence. But I don’t know that much about government and the workings of the state. I had a poor education in school and I’m not required to take classes about that in college. To a kid, I’m not going to study that on my own when I could be watching the Simpsons instead. And now, I simply don’t have the time or energy to study things that like that I should know but don’t. If the Constitution were more fun and interesting to learn, more kids might. Maybe teachers should find a cool way to study it so students don’t leave their homework for the television?
