“If someone grew up in a barn, that is no reason to look down on him/her. “

You are absolutely correct. I was actually referring to the animals that grow up in a barn, as the original comment implies, and didn’t mean for you to infer that I was talking about people. While I do agree that no one should be faulted for the lack of opportunity to be educated, there is no such lack for most of us; nonetheless, our school systems are NOT educating our young people to speak or even write properly.

There has been a tremendous dumbing-down of our educational system. Instead of elevating our young people and helping them rise to their best levels of ability, we are giving many of them a pass through the system, often to their detriment. This is most evident in many Yeshivas, but is found across the board in the public schools.
