The Governor of Oregon has signed a bill into law that removes all requirements for high school students to demonstrate their proficiency in reading, writing, and math. We’ll get to the supposed “reasoning” behind this legislation in a moment, but it’s first worth mentioning the timing. As the Oregonian found out, this law has actually been in place for a while now. Governor Kate Brown signed the bill back on July 14th, but nobody knew about it until this past week. The reason for that is that the Governor didn’t hold a signing ceremony, there was no press release about it and the bill wasn’t entered into the legislative database until July 29th. At that point, journalists finally noticed it began writing about it.


*As to the reason for dropping all of these critical standards, it’s based on allegations of racism, of course. The governor’s deputy communications director said that dropping the requirements “will benefit Oregon’s Black, Latino, Latina, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color.”

We’ve seen this in so many liberal school systems by this point that it’s almost becoming routine. They weren’t getting enough minority students who were able to pass the proficiency exams. So rather than putting in the work to bring those students up to speed, they simply dropped the requirement for everyone, essentially turning their diplomas into participation trophies. It’s hard enough to get the more successful students accepted into universities as it is. How well will those students do when the college acceptance offices can’t even verify that they can read or do sophomore-level math?



* So the Left says they are to stupid to Read Write Add.


And We're called The Extremists and Racists.
