The Oregonian: Gov. Kate Brown Signed a Law That Allows Oregon Students To Graduate Without Being Able to Read, Write or Do Math

Hold on.

The progressive lunatics in the Pacific Northwest come up with an even better idea than abolishing the police, teaching CRT in public schools, toppling statues of George Washington and encouraging homelessness and drug addiction. Why not abolish all standards in public education to fight racism? If standards are leading to racial inequity in graduation rates, aren’t those standards a racist policy under Ibram X. Kendism? Why can’t everyone be a winner and a high school graduate?

The Oregonian:

“For the next five years, an Oregon high school diploma will be no guarantee that the student who earned it can read, write or do math at a high school level.

Gov. Kate Brown had demurred earlier this summer regarding whether she supported the plan passed by the Legislature to drop the requirement that students demonstrate they have achieved those essential skills. But on July 14, the governor signed Senate Bill 744 into law.

Through a spokesperson, the governor declined again Friday to comment on the law and why she supported suspending the proficiency requirements. …

Boyle said in an emailed statement that suspending the reading, writing and math proficiency requirements while the state develops new graduation standards will benefit “Oregon’s Black, Latino, Latina, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color.”

“Leaders from those communities have advocated time and again for equitable graduation standards, along with expanded learning opportunities and supports,” Boyle wrote.

Lawmakers and the governor did not pass any major expansion of learning opportunities or supports for Black, Indigenous and students of color during this year’s legislative session. …”

Come home, White man.

The BoBos have seized control of the coastal metros and have gone mad. The opposition to their rule is consolidating between the Appalachians and Cascades.

  1. When I was young, high school graduation was equivalent to a bachelors today, and grandparents were proud of their performance on the eighth grade county or township examination, which was quite difficult by today’s standards. Poor working-class youth had to stop at eighth grade and begin full-time employment, while the middle and upper class youth went on to senior high, and a few to college.

  2. 60+ yrs ago , a HS diploma had value.
    Today, most employers will dismiss such a diploma as nothing more than a scrap of paper.

    This is another instance of the lower standards of POC pulling the entire nation down.
    Ever lower standards and the degrading of achievement will pull everyone down.

    Pity the WHITE kid who worked hard to achieve.

  3. The Left is tacitly acknowledging by their actions that The Bell Curve is correct and that their colored pets don’t have the intelligence or other qualities necessary to function productively in society. The Left itself is admitting now that all men are not created equal, that colored people are on the bottom as far as intellectual work goes.

    The only logical inference to be drawn is that 75 years of “equality” policies in all their permutations have failed. The U.S. has gone so far down the rabbit hole of “equality” it’s now impossible to admit that this was a huge, nation wrecking blunder and it’s past time to reverse course. Instead, it’s time to double down on failure as the USS Titanic is driven at 100 MPH into the iceberg even though the captain saw it on radar 100 miles away.

    Get the lifeboats ready, it’s all one can do at this point with the lunatics in charge.

    • @12AaX7 – But the Left is not admitting that all are not created equal. The only reason they can accept for the failure of poc is that it’s racism and inequity holding them down.

      • “the failure of poc is that it’s racism and inequity holding them down.”

        Any lame excuse.

        (The exact opposite is true, POC hold backcWHITES, while WHITES pander to the disruptions of POC.)

      • The Left’s admission that “All Men are Created Equal” is false is an implicit admission, not an explicit admission thus the ever changing rationale for new anti-racism projects. The Left will never admit directly, explicitly that the colored folks are way to the left on the bell curve and that this is genetic but their actions e.g. “systemic racism” tell the tale told by an idiot (themselves) that “All Men are Not”created equal.

        There is an air of panic about the whole “systemic racism” project. The Old Left actually believed that horseshit about equality but after 75 years and trillions of dollars of failures to bring about equality they have given up. Instead of trying fruitlessly to lift up the coloreds the emphasis has shifted 100% to driving down Whites, consequences be damned. This is their implicit admission that equality is a fraud, instead of lifting up they are pounding down.

    • Maybe Hunter should create a fag dictionary with all the LBTQ terms and what they mean, I can’t keep track, nor do I want to. Sort of like a public service, there always seem to be new genders.

  4. In other words brown people are too stupid for reading and math. Getting 20 year old Pee Wee out of high school who has been a junior since he was a junior is seen as a benefit to our ruling elite. It isn’t going to benefit the people they’re claiming to help.

    Cuckservatives are kinda right. Libtards are racists who don’t know how to be racist.

  5. If they can’t read, how will they read holocaust study materials to attain holocaust competency? Isn’t this bill anti-semitic?

  6. Folks, it’s not the “Bobos”, the liberals, the Democrats, the leftists, the boomers, etc.
    The European, White culture is being systematically destroyed by the Jews.
    It’s time to proact, not react.

    • We need a new party. One that represents us. Neither the Dems or the Repubs represent me at all. We need a party that doesn’t care about “immigration reform” or being fair. One that will save the nation.

  7. Doesn’t matter if they can’t read, write or do math…… long as they know to be less waysis.
    Safe spaces and LGBTQABCXYZ awareness is important as well….

  8. The high school diploma in the United States has been pretty useless for awhile. When this kind of proposal takes hold, and you know it’s going to spread, all it will mean is that you had a pulse on your 18th birthday.

    Credential and diploma creep in the United States has gotten so bad, that I read an article last week that the real status marker for cognitive capability has now fallen all the way back to the master’s degree.

  9. They want masses of dumb mongrels
    1) to terrorize the WHITE population
    2) pull down wages
    3) easily herded into voting SJW

  10. School is racist. They should be allowed to NOT attend school and be given 4 GPA points for Diversity. They shouldn’t be forced to conform to White academic standards.
