    Default Race To LCD

    It's been going on for years and years. Wasn't always about systematic racism either.

    Had to get rid of the "Stawberries" because they made the "Chocolate Chips" feel bad with their reading group.

    Getting rid of ability groups was to make the lower performing kids feel better and keep the high kids in check somewhat. Shockingly some of those former "Strawberries " became behavior problems, especially during reading and math classes.

    A few years later the evening out appeared in gym and extracurricular sports. Everyone plays and everyone gets a trophy.

    It just keeps devolving.

    A great post and linked video.
    Race to the bottom as was said, hits it exactly.
    And that is the core of the dem agenda--the dumbing down of America!
    So that the dems get more future voters.
    As the dem agenda is steadily more and more getting (dumbed -down)voters to vote-against their own self-interests.
    This process was basically conceived and set into place in the 1960's.
    Now these 60 years later we get to see the moronic fruits that it is currently bearing, imho.-Tyr

    Sure it is, as always lied about by the dems and the leftists that always seek to hide their
    deliberate and methodical actions taken to weaken this nation and insure more blinded voters
    to vote for them in the future. They are masters at renaming the insidious and devious crap they engage in..-Tyr

    So what, if presented with a child in the 8th grade performing advanced calculus equations with ease and showing an extremely high IQ - and they would prefer to hold him/her back instead of helping promote that if the child wants to or is eager for advanced classes? So all of those amazing stories about kids ready to enter college at like 12 years old, wouldn't want that crap around anymore!!

    Why ever limit classes or advanced education for those who have that knowledge? Afraid of offending others with smarts? Trust me, they don't care.

    When I was in high school we had a few genius students. An Indian kid, a brother-sister of Chinese kids and one local nerdy white girl. Taking like Calculus 1 and 2 and done with all Algebra & on advanced level of several languages. And of course they were top of the class and 2 of them the valedictorian stuff. All took advanced courses of several kinds. Who cares? They were smarter than me. I didn't want to be in those classes and fail!

    This is just stupid and will only hold students back and do harm, IMO.

    Here is a thought

    Itís a radical idea, but since things are all about radicalism these days, it is worth suggesting.

    Letís get rid of these short sighting social programs and give the money back to the taxpayer. Make it a requirement to work if you need welfare... there are a lot of things that need to be done. Letís actually enforce the existing immigration laws. And letís make it possible for public figures to sue the media for printing lies. Also, if youíre caught being violent, letís put your ass in prison for a long time.

    Letís make Washington less important than our State Capitals, and town halls


    Letís require universities and schools to teach the things they used to teach and outlaw critical race theory, gender/queer/African studies and other curricula that brainwash students. Letís teach the Constitution to kids, the classics to high school students... and teach kids how to handle money and the fundamentals of economics

    Letís go after Antifa, Black Lives Matter and throw them in prison.

    Letís throw the book at Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters, Barak Obama, Andrew Cuomo, and other politicians who have broken the law

    Letís build more prisons and require bail for criminals.

    You may say Iím a dreamer but Iím not the only one
