Is the generation in education getting less intelligent than the ones before them or smarter?
Human knowledge is said to increase by 2/3 of the total accumulated knowledge every year. With these numbers please bear in mind that with new knowledge comes new applications for the knowledge. Every generation has its own advancements as well as its own challenges. To judge wether one generation is smarter than another is not very practical considering the different events and happenings as well as technological advancements in each generation. On a sepparate note, different people learn in different ways. Some people are linguistic others are logic oriented. With today's world, people are more accepting of those who do not persue higher education. The problem is not that the education system is flawed, it's that the paradigm is different. People nowadays can choose not to persue a post secondary education and still make a decent living. So in conclusion the generation is neither geting smarter nor less intelligent than the generation prior to this one.

How we can use social media on a world scale to launch a global campaign to recognize Internet access as a basic human right?
To be completely honest, Internet access is not a basic human necessisty. The internet is an entity of computerized proportions which connects the word not on a personal scale but on a purely objective scale. Litterally anyone can post a piece of information on it. Your suggestion of putting internet access into underdeleloped countries may result in catastrophe due to the lack of education in said countries. The internet may become a new tool of propaganda as well as political influence and may also act as a catalyst for extremeism in these countries. The internet requires a safe level of educational "back up" to be able to function at its maximum potential.
