The scores for all the high schools in the state came out recently. Looking at the school I graduated from, I was pretty unimpressed. Only 58% of 10th grade students (the highest grade tested) were proficient or better in reading, 44% in writing, and 10% in math. Reading and writing scores are actually worse than the year before, math improving slightly to a pathetic 10%.
I often wonder how it is our country is slipping away from us but I shouldn't. I shouldn't wonder. This is why.
I've decided to go ahead and take this blog completely toward politics/economy. It's all I talk about anyway. Remember, you can email me at randy [at] circularlife [dot] com or use the chat box in the lower right.
