This one has been marinating in my tabs for a while. Vodka Pundit (Stephen Green) at PJ Media: Oregon Learning Lockdown: Lawmakers Say 'You Don't Need No Education'
Oregon students shouldn’t have to prove they can write or do math to get a diploma, lawmakers decide
After useless lockdowns robbed Oregon students of a year-and-a-half worth of education, what’s a smart group of lawmakers to do?
Treat next year’s students as though they can’t learn, either… and the year after that, and the year after that, etc.A bill to prohibit Oregon schools from requiring students to show they can read, write and do math at a basic high school level is headed to Gov. Kate Brown after lawmakers gave final approval Wednesday.There had been requirements in place that students actually gain a few, basic skills before being given a diploma indicating they had gained a few, basic skills — but only since 2009.
Those requirements were suspended last year, an inevitable result of the self-defeating lockdowns.
And they’ll stay suspended, at the very least through the Class of ’24, when Governor Kate Brown signs SB744.
How much education do you need to throw Molotov cocktails at the Federal Courthouse in Portland anyway?
