If you can’t smarten up the kids, dumb down the test.

March 3rd, 2006

Apparently some States are making their scholastic “proficiency” tests incredibly easy so that their students seem to be doing better for No Child Left Behind.

When the same kids take federal proficiency tests, generic viagra salve they fail miserably.

If this isn’t an argument for federal education dollars to be tied to student performance on a national test, I don’t know what is.

Don’t the adults in these states understand that the only people they’re cheating…are their own kids?

    Sorry, it’s you who doesn’t understand. Schools are no longer about education. They are about INDOCTRINATION. Little Johnny must think politically correct and proper thoughts. His self esteem must not be tarnished. He must think in a liberal, progressive and secularly fairminded way so he can become a good soldier for the movement. This is why my faith in the future of this country is not very high. This type of thinking infests the entire educational system, all the way through college. There are some exceptions, but they are limited in number.
