remember??? 'the education of girls/women is the key to a good economic
future for a society'

it was BIG NEWS in the 60s-70s.....studies of 3rd world countries showed that when girls/women had an education, the birthrate fell from 6?+ children and the children had better nurtrition, better chances for a productive future, etc

what I got from the info coming in at the time: education for girls/women AND fewer children per mother are the KEY to a society's prosperous future

I don't think anyone in the bushco believes this....or, if they do, they are consciously working to destroy such prosperous futures for every society, including the one in the US

1. Very, very true
The educational level of a country's women is the greateset influence on that country's birthrate.

If the average woman in a country has the equivalent of a high school education, the birthrate drops to 2 children per woman or even less.

The higher the female illiteracy rate, the higher the birthrate.

2. I think they are more concerned that if only poor people have more than
two kids.. that judao-christians are going to be even a smaller minority in 30 years. And then in another 20 that "group" will be even smaller.

I think they are well aware that if you educate women and give them opportunity - they have fewer kids and invest more in each one.

That isn't what they want.

They want the america of the 19th century. Where the population of White people expanded.

That would be my guess.
