An Oregon high school diploma does not guarantee that students who earned it can read, write or do math at a high school level.
Governor Kate Brown dropped the requirement that students demonstrate they have achieved those essential skills by signing Senate Bill 744 into law. She declined again Friday to comment on why she supported suspending the proficiency requirements, reported OregonLive.
The bill was not entered into the legislative database until July 29, a departure from the standard practice of updating the public database the same day a bill is signed. Charles Boyle, the governor’s deputy communications director, said the governor’s staff told legislative staff the same day the governor signed the bill.
Boyle said in an emailed statement that suspending the reading, writing and math proficiency requirements will benefit “Oregon’s Black, Latino, Latina, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of colour.”
Ignoring the fact that they know what they doing is wrong, which is why they lie, hide or do not follow the normal procedures for these things I want to discuss the most egregious issue with the above. How the hell are they so stupid to include Asians as a minority that need education levels to be reduced? I expect they just threw in every minority they could think of to make it sound better but by doing so they dismissed their own argument in the process (as wafer thin as it was to begin with).
The bigotry of low expectations is not slowing down that’s for sure.
