The progressive lunatics in the Pacific Northwest come up with an even better idea than abolishing the police, teaching CRT in public schools, toppling statues of George Washington and encouraging homelessness and drug addiction. Why not abolish all standards in public education to fight racism? If standards are leading to racial inequity in graduation rates, aren’t those standards a racist policy under Ibram X. Kendism? Why can’t everyone be a winner and a high school graduate?
“For the next five years, an Oregon high school diploma will be no guarantee that the student who earned it can read, write or do math at a high school level.
Gov. Kate Brown had demurred earlier this summer regarding whether she supported the plan passed by the Legislature to drop the requirement that students demonstrate they have achieved those essential skills. But on July 14, the governor signed Senate Bill 744 into law.
Through a spokesperson, the governor declined again Friday to comment on the law and why she supported suspending the proficiency requirements. …
Boyle said in an emailed statement that suspending the reading, writing and math proficiency requirements while the state develops new graduation standards will benefit “Oregon’s Black, Latino, Latina, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color.”
“Leaders from those communities have advocated time and again for equitable graduation standards, along with expanded learning opportunities and supports,” Boyle wrote.
Lawmakers and the governor did not pass any major expansion of learning opportunities or supports for Black, Indigenous and students of color during this year’s legislative session. …”
Come home, White man.
The BoBos have seized control of the coastal metros and have gone mad. The opposition to their rule is consolidating between the Appalachians and Cascades.
