This from today’s New York Times:
Most New York Students Are Not College-Ready By SHARON OTTERMAN In light of new data, the state may have schools report both the graduation rate and the college ready rate.
So after nine years (and counting) of imbecilic federal laws, state and city laws concocted by politicians and their corporate employers, New York State education officials released graduation statistics showing that less than half of students in the state are leaving high school prepared for college and “ well-paying careers.”
Only one thing to do. Put even more pressure on teachers. Bust their unions. Degrade and demoralize them that much the more. Remove even more responsibility from students and administrators. Have Bill Gates fund more inspiring movies like “Waiting For Superman.” Close more schools. Create new and exiting ways to fire teachers and do so.
That’s the ticket.
Been working so far.
