no, the reason the world is full of idiots has nothing to do with schools, but with previous idiots that breed. However, the way schools are set up doesn't help the situation much, either. students learn, through the constant bullshit they are forced to trudge through, that schools are not there to provide education. the "information" they provide is almost always useless and definitely always boring.
the only thing most students "learn" at school is that school is a joke, and a student's purpose in school is to pass tests and make good grades ONLY. whether or not they actually gain knowledge and benefit from this is irrelevant. the only thing that really matters, at least in secondary education (high school), are the final numbers that a student gets and nothing else. period. school is merely a stepping stone onto something better. a MEANS to and end, not the end itself, and the only people who say that school today is successful and beneficiary are politicians because they need to kiss ass to get votes, and teachers who need to justify their miserable existance on earth by constantly barking out the lie that diagraming sentences and doing the same damn useless math problem 70 times in a row is actually beneficial to people, which it isn't.

Stupidity is often a by-product of sitting in a stale classroom, being spoon-fed boring "knowledge", which discourages actual thinking, which may actually result in varying degrees of stupidity, depending on the person's genetic makeup and other things. I base this analysis on absolutely nothing.
If you want to know the true sinister purpose of public schools, go here and here.
