Right now, the Governor of Pennsylvania is nearly adamant about closing as many public schools in Philadelphia as possible. In the past, dumbing down the people has meant its easier to control them, and in my opinion that is what's happening now.
EDIT: To answer all the "schools are about conformity", that's true to some degree. But, as someone else commented about that, its easier to control stupid people in general. If someone is taught to conform, that's one thing; to eliminate the ability to think for yourself is another.
