US Education: States Ask To Shutter Proficiency Testing

With students out of school and fumbling about for a year+, the result would appear to be a loss of upwards of 2 years of education.   Thus an eighth grader would remain in 8th grade for 2-3 years just to catch up. As a result, states have called upon the federal government to alleviate standardized testing. Why? Because no student will pass their grade level.   Why?   Because CoVid shutdowns denied children their right to education.

The elimination of the standardized tests simply extends the illusion of education.   In actuality, these children across the GLOBE have been damaged severely.   And in the US, states and state governors are busily trying to shroud that truth in a cloth of illusion.

The US public school system was already incredibly abysmal with students graduating from high school who couldn’t put together a declarative sentence, couldn’t make change at a cash register, or couldn’t tell you the name of past presidents much less our first.

It was widely accepted that children integrating from Australia, South Africa, and parts of Europe would automatically graduate to a year or more of their supposed grade level by US terms or standards.

Given the CoVid nightmare of equalizing every ‘DOWN’, that would include making US students even further removed from grade levels in order to create a new global ignorance.   Today, an eight grader in the US might test as a 5th grader in Australia. And this is the definition of equality.   Down.   Everything must be down –

Instead of lifting, the Powers have decided it is much easier to simply even the field by making everyone an – idiot.

Down.

Who is onboard?   Washington, Colorado, North Carolina, California, Ohio, etc… just look for the Blue Light and there you will find the desolate.   A sweet boy in my state battled against his anger because he was relegated to online learning for college and it simply wasn’t working.   He dropped out.

While we mourn the elderly in nursing homes and Alzheimer’s facilities for dying by the hands of murdering governors, where is the outrage for the children!?   Raising a generation of lost souls and embittered minds.   The school solution is more mental psychologists and counselors!    Really! Really!

That is parallel to the Pharma solution.   Drugs. Not cures.   Drugs. Drugs that create more side effects requiring more drugs to combat the side effects.   The CURE for our children is NOT Psychologists – it is normalcy.   Normalcy is based on sports, relationships, interaction, and lastly – education.   It is just the way it is and always has been.

Life skills.

For example, South Carolina recently asked to be relieved of the following requirements:

  • South Carolina College-and Career-Ready Assessments (SC READY) in English language arts and mathematics (grades 3-8)
  • South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS) in science (grades 4 and 6)
  • End-of-Course examinations in Biology, Algebra, U.S. History and the Constitution, and English (all grades)
  • English Language Proficiency and alternate assessments (when applicable)

How freaking sad is this that a state governor would desire to reveal that the middle school students in his/her county, or state, can not even read English with proficiency, much less have career ready math at a grade level of 8th, or Science at a grade level of 6th, or any grade level evaluations in the collective of Math, Reading, Science, English or History!

Public Schools are mainstay of our Property Taxes.   We Pay their salaries, their benefits, their holidays, their pensions.   And NOW – We PAY for them to do NOTHING.  I want a rebate.  Not just a renouncement of current taxes, but a renouncement of prior  taxes that gave a DEAD Education.  I want my Money Back.  Because I did not authorize a fake education.  I AM PISSED>

Having raised three boys in the public school system, I can attest to the constant battles, the awful teaching, and once in a while the perfect teacher!   And we had 2.   They shined!

But it took a shitake of parental involvement each day to mitigate the faulty teaching, faulty teachers, and down-right messes of civilization authorized to teach. It should NOT be so.

I cannot imagine the mess that is defined as “Public Teaching” today whether it be in kindergarten, elementary, middle, high school or college.   I would pronounce them all incompetent and advocate for Charter and/or HomeSchooling.   Period.  And I certainly don’t think I should have to pay for their idiotic Mess.   I am – Afterall – Their Employer.

US EDUCATION: Dumbing of America for Control

The Department of Education has a federal taxpayer funded budget of $71.5 billion, which represents about 8-9% of funding.   State and local property taxes comprise about 31.5% of collections of which roughly 40-50% is spent on schools.   Last year state and local tax collections totaled about $1.1 trillion.   Each public school pupil costs between $11,000 and $25,000 per year with a total budgetary expense for 2017 at $694 billion covering 50.8 million public school students.   That would represent an average of $13,661 per child or about $2500 higher than the average public state college. In addition, school fees and supplies can add upwards of $1200 per student per year – not including a computer and backpacks. By contrast, the cost to homeschool a child averages about $450 per child – or 3% of the average public cost.

Does throwing more money at schools make for a better education?

NY Buffalo District schools ranked an ELA proficiency rating of about 24%. In Wisconsin ACT scores dropped to 20 out of 36 exam questions – basically an “F”.   Tulsa Oklahoma stated that proficiency rates ‘plummeted’ in 2017.

The curriculum utilized over the last few decades has continued to morph into a vague image of its self once upon a time.   Today, according to Bruce Deitrik, this dumbing down was purposeful and deliberate.

Why?

To create sheeple incapable of accomplishing anything of value thereby subjecting them to the progressive globalization and New World Order of peasantry.

The riots and protests that we have been made witness to over the last decade is confirmation that our public education system is dysfunctional and completely worthless.  Students haven’t the ability to make change, state the name of five Presidents, or debate common philosophy, history, art, literature – or much of anything of value.

But it doesn’t stop there. Supposedly 72% of high school graduates ‘enroll in college’ compared to just 9% in 1940.   Why?  Colleges used to be for the elite, those with money and brains.   But savvy marketing over the course of decades changed the entire frontier from 160,000 students in 1000 colleges to 20 million annually in 5300+ colleges and universities.

It all changed in 1964 when Lyndon Johnson set up the Great Society programs that gave federal funding to colleges, scholarships, low interest loans, and subsidized the creation of 30 new community colleges per year.   Those subsidized student loans now aggregate $1.5 trillion spread out among 34 million students.

And within the Socialist Agenda we should absorb that debt.

Why?   Because the students can’t repay, they can’t afford it, they don’t want to pay it, they feel it should be free…   And in their pee-brains, no other country charges for college…

Today the US has about 20 million enrolled in college, which equates to 6% of the population.   The entire EU had 4.8 million who graduated tertiary education in 2017 out of a population of 513 million, which equates to .9%, an 85% discrepancy ratio.

Why? Because in the EU only those students who have tested intellectually superior – are allowed to go to college. And the determination is made during the formative years by the someones who make such determinations.

Today, facing off the bizarre CoVid appellate court, teachers unions and governors are holding court and digging in their heels to prevent students from returning to school after a 6+ month hiatus.   The ‘online’ mandate has resulted in some rather interesting failures including Michigan declaring that online instruction will not count toward the required annual instruction hours, Virginia’s Fairfax County parent’s filing complaints, and a plethora of failed online tech, poor outcomes and a high dropout ratio.   Thousands of schools didn’t even have an online availability, and the scramble for those that did to initiate 6 months of course curriculum in weeks – was an obvious mud bath.

While Pearson was the Bill Gates go-to, another rather obscure online forum has been quickly rising in the ranks – BYJU’s.   Funded by Zuckerberg, the very liberal – General Atlantic, The IFC whose parent is World Bank, Tencent Holdings out of China, and various venture capitalists connected with Google and prominent supporters of – Obama, provide the composite history of BYJU.  Making it much worse, Disney has collaborated in the ‘learning is fun’ module where basic concepts in Marxism and white supremacy are employed to devalue children.

I suppose we can count on them to provide unbiased, intellectual modes of online learning….

Unfortunately, like Amazon, BYJU is mired in disgruntled employee shrew where videos reveal a toxic environment of verbal abuse, nonpayment of wages, mindless firings, and an overall work-life balance of -1.

Apparently in collaboration with Twitter and You-Tube, BYJU management threaten employees if their social media accounts are not in compliance with corporate standards of liberal ‘tolerance and inclusion’, of those they deem tolerable and worthy of inclusion

While the article concludes that ‘investors should not be concerned’ regarding the complaints and controversies, the main user – students – likely should be concerned given they are being fed a ‘feed’ of information that is controlled by the Liberal Deep State.

In the end, education in the US has now become a choice of indoctrination or intellectual stimulus.   One is provided by the Deep State – the other must be provided by Parents.   One costs upwards of $15,000+ per year – the other costs $450 per year.   One requires students to submit to 12-14 years of primary education – the other shows typical graduation data as of 16.   One is controlled by parents – the other is controlled by The Nazi State.

Ultimately – the choice is yours.
