Is my paranoid meter permanently stuck on high or does it seem that this is a disturbing statement?

"An objective of the Kids and Learning First plan is to keep students interested and motivated to stay in school, graduate, get good jobs and become good citizens."

The Government of Nova Scotia openly states it is an indoctrination machine. Nova Scotia has a high graduation rate, but other sources indicate it has one of the lowest standards for graduation. Also, I have always felt that "Good Jobs" has been setting their sights mighty low. 

Oh how I yearn for a return to the "trivium" and Liberal Arts where the objective is to learn stuff, make great things, and become a discerning individual.

Update: Statcan contradicts Nova Scotia's claims of high graduation rates. Infact, NS has the lowest grad rate in the country.
