and for being Anti-Intellectual. Well, let's look at one more example of what Experts and Intellectuals are doing to us:
High school students won’t have to be “proficient” in either math or English to graduate, under minimum required test scores proposed by State Superintendent Paolo DeMaria.
They will just need to know enough to do the most basic of jobs.
DeMaria said the “competency” scores are not meant to show readiness for college, or even a career, only that a graduate knows enough to do the basics of an entry-level job.
“The competencies that we’re describing are meant to be about that high school-only job position,” he said. Graduates can then learn more on their own.
And the shitheads in the legislature seem to be happy to go along with this.
We've got people in college who, not that long ago, would not have made it into high school until they repeated a grade and got it right; now these idiots deliberately want to dumb-down education to the point of "You'll be- barely- able to do some entry level jobs, as long as they don't require much."
I'm afraid it's long past time a bunch of the bastards behind this were tarred and feathered, and a bunch of them hanged.
