Education in general is much better than it ever has been, and it runs an incredibly large gamut.
Let's look at what is probably relevant: were people even capable, 30 or 40 years ago, of having half-intelligent conversations about whether vaccines were a good idea?

Go check out what YouTube has to offer on the subject, if you haven't already.
