The things you can't be told: The latest international test scores have been released.
They come from the 2018 PISA (Program for International Student Assessment), a major test battery which is administered every three years. In the PISA, 15-year-olds from 79 "education systems" (mostly meaning "countries") are tested in reading, math and science.
The results were reported this morning, after a manner, in both the Post and the Times. For unknown reasons, this suitably gloomy news report, complete with suitably gloomy headline, appears on the front page of the hard-copy Times, but it doesn't appear in the Times' "Today's Paper" listings at all.
At any rate, we're not sure we've ever seen such carefully bowdlerized reporting. Starting tomorrow, we'll spend a few days showing you what sorts of things you're allowed to be told, along with the basic facts to which you won't be exposed.
There are things these papers don't want you to know. According to major anthropologists, this is the way of our species. Our species' brains were wired for this, these top major experts have said.
We allow in a bunch of illiterate illegal immigrants, and a lot of students score badly. Who woulda thunk it?ReplyDelete
Illegal immigrants? Hmm, I don't know 'bout that.ReplyDelete
I think I would rather attribute it to the erosion of the middle class, a result of liberal globalization efforts, initiated back in 1970-80s, and turned overwhelming since the 90s, with NAFTA and all that followed.
No more stable well-paying manufacturing jobs; a lot of temporary, low-paying, manual service jobs instead. No middle-class jobs means no middle-class culture means no middle-class attitude to education. Something like that, perhaps.
I too support labor unions.Delete
All Red-blooded Americans support labor unions. The only folks who don't are the entire Republican Party and the Blue Dog Dems in the pocket of the corporations.Delete

I never believed in Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster called DR BEN.. The man i wanted to marry left me 3 months to our wedding ceremony and my life was upside down.he was with me for 4 years and i really love him so much..he left me for another woman with no reasons..when i called him, he never picked up my calls and he don't want to see me around himso,when i told the man what happened. he helped me to do some readings,and after the readings he made me to realize that the other woman has done some spells over my Husband and that is the reason why he left me..he told me he will help me to cast a spell to bring him back. At first i was skeptical but i just gave it a tryIn 4 days, My Husband called me himself and came to me apologizing..I cant believe he can ever come back to me again but now i am happy he's back and we are married now and we live as a happy family..Am posting this to the forum if anyone needs the help of this man.Can contact him through this email address : email@example.com or Whatsapp +2348151642717..ReplyDelete

During the first year, I had faith in God that I would be healed someday.This disease started to circulate all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, a few weeks ago I came on search on the internet if I could get any information concerning the prevention of this disease, on my search I saw a testimony of someone who has been healed from (Hepatitis B and Cancer) by this Man Dr. agaba and she also gave the email address of this man and advise we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so I wrote to Dr. agaba telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! hmm i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks later I started experiencing changes all over me as the Dr. assured me that I have cured, after some time i went to my doctor to confirmed if I have been finally healed behold it was TRUE, So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other at all you can email Dr. agaba (firstname.lastname@example.org) sir I am indeed grateful for the help I will forever recommend you to my friends!!! with your lovely Email Address (email@example.com or whatsApp him +2349074536486ReplyDelete
