Apparently not very long at all.

I would suggest that education of the youth, at home and in the school system needs to be addressed in some form. Most education, have a larger student to teacher ratio that would not really be conducive to helping people in this area. This would be because everybody learns at different speeds.
Most education systems, lecture students rather than explain how things work. This has built a number of people that would simply believe what they are told by those with credentials suitable enough to be believed.
A good example of this is the Flat Earth society of the past. Many believed, that the earth must be flat, so those heavily credential members must be right. Today, we say it is common sense that it is not.
