Moonbat-infested unions and government bureaucrats have been entrusted with the education of future generations. It’s not working out. From America’s First City:
Nearly 80 percent of New York City high school graduates need to relearn basic skills before they can enter the City University’s community college system. …
They had to re-learn basic skills — reading, writing and math — first before they could begin college courses. …
In sheer numbers it means that nearly 11,000 kids who got diplomas from city high schools needed remedial courses to re-learn the basics.
Liberals will seize on this as evidence that we need to throw still more taxpayer money at teachers unions. Yet New York already leads the nation in spending per pupil. New York City wastes a jaw-dropping $20,276 per student per year. Yet only 60.1% graduate, and only 20% of those can read well enough to take college courses.
The NYC public school system is a glorified babysitting service; its astronomical cost is crippling.
If we want a future as anything but a Third World hellhole, we need to get education out of the hands of the government and unions immediately.
