Do you want to know why my job is so easy? It’s because idiot Democrats keep coming up with crazy ideas.
One idea, that comes out of New Mexico from a young lady who happens to be a member of the Democratic Party, is crazier than most.
We spend more money than every other country on the planet in public education. That’s kindergarten through 12th grade. And yet despite the fact that we spend all that money, we produce a very bad result. About a third of the kids drop out and of those who stay behind, about half of them actually make the grade.
High school graduates go off to college, and a quarter of them – a full 25% – aren’t even capable of college level work.
So what does this young lady from New Mexico want to do? She’s a state lawmaker and she says “Well if we want more kids to graduate from high school, maybe we should lower the standards, and give them a sub-standard high school diploma.”
Yeah, there’s an idea – just lower the bar – and then they can all get a blue ribbon.
