The Marlin, TX, school district postponed its high school graduation because, school officials said, only 5 members of the senior class met the state standards for graduation (https://www.cnn.com/2023/05/26/us/marlin-high-school-texas-graduation/index.html#:~:text=A%20rural%20Texas%20high%20school,5%20seniors%20meet%20graduation%20requirements&text=A%20high%20school%20in%20Marlin,seniors%20met%20requirements%20for%20graduation.). The other 28 were held back because of poor grades and poor attendance.
Update: 17 seniors, in just one week, have supposedly made up for their insufficiencies.
Never mind! CYA Inc. has provided a solution.
Yes, why let your high school twist in the wind because nobody can graduate? Shift the blame to where it belongs–parents, grandparents, Donald Trump, and even the kids themselves if things get really gnarly!
CYA’s Substitute Diploma will get educators off the hook. Here’s a sample:
This is to certify that the ________ School District has attempted to give So-and-so an education conforming to state standards and that it’s his/her own fault that he/she is still an idiot. This is what they get for cutting class–it’s not our fault!
This way the school can still have a sort-of graduation celebration. Hand out these certificates as if they were diplomas and tell these wayward students “Hasta la vista, baby!”
Endorsed by 36 teachers’ unions nationwide!
Vouchers! Let’s go get those vouchers!
To stop a legislative vote on a school choice bill that would provide education vouchers to persons at all income levels, North Carolina’s Democrat governor declared a State of Emergency–yes, an “emergency” (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/05/north-carolina-democrat-governor-roy-cooper-declares-state/).
What in the world can this mean? Are North Carolina’s public schools so awful that they’ll all be left empty within hours of the vouchers being made available? Not so hard to believe. But what would the state do with all those empty schools?
But what’s the emergency? And whose emergency is it? The public escaping from the public schools, to the teachers’ unions, that would be an emergency. To “educators” and school administrators with six-figure salaries, it would be an emergency. And certainly the groomers wouldn’t like it.
Well, any Democrat governor knows who butters his bread, doesn’t he?
And it ain’t the normal people.
Just in case you were wondering about how well our public education system’s working, there’s a report out by Emily Hanford, American Public Media, stating that some 65 percent of our fourth-graders “can’t really read” (https://www.thefp.com/p/why-65-percent-of-fourth-graders).
No, it’s not due to COVID Etc. It’s due to trendy teaching methods that just don’t work–and, I might add, to enormous amounts of classroom time wasted on Far Left crapola.
They can’t read, but I’ll bet they can rattle off a couple dozen “genders” if given half a chance.
Parents! Are you absolutely, positively sure you can’t do better than this? You can’t do better than the teachers’ colleges and teachers’ unions?
Shame on you, if it’s so. Time to homeschool!
