Okay, hear now the nooze! I can’t see what I’m doing, so I’ll fit right in.
Oregon now has a brand-new law freeing high school students from any requirement to learn how to read, write, or do high-school level math (https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/the-demise-of-america-new-state-law-wont-guarantee-high-school-graduates-can-read-write-or-do-math/).
Go ahead, try to guess why they’re doing this? Betcha can’t! [cue Jeopardy theme music]
Give up? Well, of course you have. You haven’t learned how to think like an out-to-lunch West Coast politician.
The reason they’re going to, er, “suspend academic requirements” for the next five years (!) is so they can dream up “equitable standards for minorities”. No surprise! It’s just them poor dumb ‘n’ stoopid minorities again, they just can’t learn hard stuff like readin’, ‘riting’, and ‘rithmetic. They can just barely dress themselves in the morning. Imagine what trouble they’d be in without white liberals to run interference for them.
Guys, I’m not the one who’s insulting you. The Oregon legislature and governor are insulting you.
Five years. So what are those diplomas going to be worth?
