Woke Colleges

Did you take the SATs to try to get into college? Your kids may not have to. More than 1,300 schools have become “test optional,” meaning students need not submit SAT scores. Some, like the entire University of California system, now won’t even look at scores.There are seemingly legitimate reasons to oppose the tests. Richer kids often get tutoring that gives them an advantage.Critics claim the tests are culturally biased and say that’s why Blacks and Latinos don’t score as well. But that doesn’t explain why Asians do so well. In fact, Asians get the best SAT scores.I assume it’s more about culture and parenting.

Ditching the SATs opens the door to even more arbitrary admissions policies and likely minority mismatches that result in higher minority drop out rates at elite colleges. Elite colleges' diversity admission statistics might look better, but after admission, things could get ugly quickly.

Sorry John, it's more about study and hard work. India, China and Japan place very high standards for education whereas Latinos, Blacks not much at all. Whites are waning year after year.and, compared to the 50's and 60's we are stupid!

In the face of social promotions and grade inflation, colleges have had only national testing to assess suitability for admission. Yes, some students are able to prove their mettle through other means but for those admitted and destined to fail, we will all be paying for their failures and debt. College is worthwhile for those able to succeed but for those who aren't it becomes a life-long emotional and financial burden. High schools need to resurrect shop and stop pushing college on everyone including marginal students.

Admission will be by wokeness, that is how important are your parents. With no rules, it’s rule by self interest of the rulers.

"Big Education" is an industry like any other. They are selling "careers" and "passion", not education in the sense of actual knowledge. A diploma is a commodity. So, they drop entry standards to expand their customer base. What's so hard to understand?

I took the SATs back in 1970 and when I applied to colleges, the one I wound up attending didn’t look at my scores at all. I went to art school and they were interested in my artistic abilities rather than my test scores. I had to submit a portfolio of my work and that was what my admission was based on. These days I think that art schools no longer require any proof of artistic ability; they let pretty much anyone in as long as the kid can cough up the $30,000 annual tuition.

Easy answer, colleges have been dumbing down their curriculum for so long that even basketball majors are awarded degrees. Even with that, they will experience a high dropout rate but hey, they already got their money. The rubber meets the road when these woke dunces begin their first job, if they can find a job in their "specialty" and the boss realizes that the degree in their hand is worth about as much as toilet paper. Wait - toilet paper has become more valuable in the past year.

Our grandson was a solid C student in high school. He also ran his own lawn service with four employees. Besides individual customers he also had contracts to maintain the grounds in three gated communities. He wrote his SAT’s and scored the the top 3% in the country. This solid C student was now being recruited by outstanding universities and offered academic scholarships. He accepted one of the scholarships, sold his company and banked a very nice sum of money. He is doing very well in college but is missing the “campus” experience due to Covid.

In lieu of SAT scores, they will have to come up with the sappiest, most demoralizing personal story they can muster. Be sure to include multiple rationalizations for why your child is a victim in at least three separate categories.

If admission to an academic program that was formerly competitive and selection based on ability is now to be determined by random drawing from the whole field of applicants so as to avoid being 'Racist', then selection to each position on all the athletic teams- football, baseball, basketball- should also be by random drawing from the whole of the student population. To avoid being 'Racist'. See how that works out.

The media in the US is perhaps the most corrupt and dishonest group of people in the world today. They are one-sided and severely biased. Their actions during the 2020 Election were repulsive and they are again showing their real colors in the way they are reporting Biden’s self-made crisis at the border.Newsbusters released a video showing the differences between how the biased and sick media in the US reported immigrants at the border under President Trump and today under Biden.

The White House is pushing an infrastructure bill that could reshape the discussion around capitalism as it seems to reestablish the federal government as a primary driver of how the economy should grow and function.In addition to traditional infrastructure projects, Biden’s $2.25 trillion American Jobs Plan would make government investments in broadband, electric vehicles, climate change, elderly care, child benefits, housing and developing future technologies. It would redefine classic infrastructure projects to include investments in workers and families paid for by tax hikes on corporations.

Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler knocked Biden for falsely claiming a new Georgia law “ends voting hours early,” giving him its harshest rating of Four Pinocchios for spreading the misinformation.Biden repeatedly claimed last week a law signed by Georgia GOP Gov.

President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan, the so-called “American Jobs Plan,” spends a great deal of space promising to address “racial equity.”As Breitbart News has explained, the term “equity” is not the same as “equality.” Equity is prepared to sacrifice equality before the law to benefit individuals claiming membership in groups deemed to suffer from historic disadvantages.Under President Donald Trump, black unemployment and poverty rates reached record lows, and the gap between black and white unemployment was the smallest ever, thanks to economic growth, Opportunity Zones, and immigration enforcement.

On her way into lunch at the Sunset Marquis hotel in Hollywood, Osbourne gave a thumbs-up to a videographer who asked her how she’s doing. The former host then threw up the peace sign and appeared to smile underneath her face mask when asked if everything was good. For the outing, Osbourne, 68, opted for a classic look that included a loosely-fitted black suit and white shirt accessorized with pearls.

President Joe Biden has introduced a gargantuan spending bill ostensibly aimed at shoring up and expanding America’s crumbling infrastructure, but as usual, there are a lot of things in the measure completely unrelated to ‘infrastructure.’To be sure, the measure would spend hundreds of billions on roads, bridges, airports, and so forth. In fact, a Washington Post analysis found that the bill earmarks $650 billion for those kinds of projects.But again, that’s just $650 billion out of $2.2 trillion. So — if this is an ‘infrastructure’ spending bill, where is the other two-thirds of the money (that we don’t have) going?

CEO Ed Bastian offered his assessment of the new Georgia law in a memo sent to employees less than a week after Delta officials joined other corporate lobbyists to shape the final version of a sweeping measure that could make it harder for some Georgia citizens to cast ballots.

A new poll indicates that Americans are giving President Biden a big thumbs up on dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.But when it comes to the divisive issue of immigration and border security, the survey suggests that the president's approval rating plummets. Just a third of Americans questioned in an NPR/Marist poll released on Tuesday say they approve of Biden's handling of the issue of immigration, with 53% saying they disapprove of his performance. While two-thirds of Democrats say they approve of how Biden has handled the issue in the first two months of his presidency, approval plunges to 27% among independents and to just 5% among Republicans.

Cities in parts of the U.S. that slashed their police department funding last year, in part as a result of police-involved shootings, have seen an uptick in certain crimes over the past year, according to data analyzed by Fox News. Cities such as Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Portland, Ore., and Austin, Texas, have shifted funds from police departments to social services programs. Such cuts have led some departments to lay off officers, cancel recruiting classes or retreat from hiring goals.
