One unifying principle on why our students are not meeting basic standards is the fact that our students are not actually in the classroom.
The info-graphic explains it all, please pass it around.
— Around 45,000 students are not in class because of the Portland teacher strike.
— The Oregonian reports, “Approximately 200,000 students were considered chronically absent — defined as missing at least 10% of school days — setting them up for not learning to read and failing to graduate from high school, according to data released Thursday by the Oregon Department of Education. An astonishing 45% of Oregon kindergartners missed school that often.”
— Class is routinely disrupted for all-day walk-outs for various liberal political causes (protest natural gas, protest climate, etc..). This disrupts the class for students who remained in class.
