Oregon Just Got Even Dumber

We have watched the streets of Portland, Oregon taken over by BLM and Antifa Marxist, Terrorists Thugs rioting, looting and burning down the city wondering when elected official were going to stop the mayhem.  But of course, they continue to fail to end the chaos on their streets.  Just when you think Oregon can't get any dumber, their Socialist legislature and Governor Kate Brown just eliminated Reading and Math proficiency requirements to graduate from high school.  

It is important to recognize that the kinds of tests public schools implement have been dumbed down anyway so it is not like kids have to be at grade level in Reading and Math; but they theoretically have to prove by testing that they can read 2 plus 2 and understand that it adds up to 4.  Now in Oregon, they will not even have to do that because testing is deemed racist.

The fact is that public schools often fail to teach minority students basic skills.  This has been happening all over the country for decades.  Most inner city kids are way below grade level in Reading and Math.  So rather than focus on helping them achieve academic success, the state of Oregon will now just ignore their failures.  

Instead, since Oregon is a blue left wing state, they will focus on Critical Race Theory and 1619 Project, which is racist Marxist, revisionist Fake History.  Of course, the kids probably can't read their state adopted history books; but who cares.  Oregon has concluded that graduating from high school with Reading and Math proficiency just does not matter.  As Forest Gump always said, "Stupid is as Stupid does."
