High School Diplomas in Oregon Rendered Meaningless

Washington Examiner

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown privately signed a bill last month ending the requirement for high school students to prove proficiency in reading, writing, and arithmetic before graduation.

Brown, a Democrat, did not hold a public signing or issue a press release regarding the passing of Senate Bill 744 on July 14, and the measure, which was approved by lawmakers in June, was not added into the state’s legislative database until more than two weeks later on July 29, an unusually quiet approach to enacting legislation, according to the Oregonian.

  1. In big Democrat cities students aren’t held back a grade anymore, it’s ‘social advancement’ now. Schools are graduating kids who are functionally illiterate and can’t make change for a dollar in their head and it’s been going on for a while.

  2. There is no use bothering going to school except to get brainwashed. The left is insane.

  3. That’s a perfect picture for the article on the front page.

  4. Because proficiency in reading, writing, and arithmetic, are…RACIST!!!

  5. Every college in the nation should now refuse to admit any applicant who graduates from an Oregon public high school after 2022. But you know they will. At least the ones from a protected class.

  6. Then why maintain the pretense?
    Just hand em out when the l’il bastards are born.

    mortem tyrannis
    izlamo delenda est …

  7. A friend of mine owns a McDonald\’s franchise in a fairly large city, and her tales of woe concerning hiring workers who are even the least bit competent are endless. But at least that HS diploma usually indicated that the applicant could read well enough to push the right buttons on the point-of-sale machine that tells the cooks what and how many items are being taken or need to be made, and can read the instructions for mixing the cleaning solutions, and can count the number of cups remaining in an open sleeve… and for that matter how many and what items to put in each bag. Not that a diploma is foolproof – and no diploma indicates whether a student is lazy or has a bad attitude or any of a hundred other potential problems. But at least it indicates a certain level of competence, even if it\’s from a lower common denominator school. Now in Oregon that diploma will tell a potential employer absolutely nothing.

    So tell me, who on earth is going to want to hire new graduates from Oregon high schools?

  8. Oh, wait, it is going to get better as these morons go through medical school etc. and become doctors and such…

  9. @Sippin’ Coffee — Yeah, and airline pilot, HAZMAT truck driver, suspension bridge engineer, petrochemical barge captain…

  10. They forget the margin of students who work for the reward, the grade, the diploma. People who really don’t care whether they learn but will for the little reward coming. Now there’s no reward. The punks and such who never had any intention of doing anything won’t in any case, and those who want to learn will in any case, but that margin of people who will make effort just for the reward but not otherwise now have no reason to. Well done lefty! Well done!

  11. They’re being more fully prepared for a life in which big government provides all.

    What could possibly go wrong?

  12. I am very proficient at good old-fashioned writing in cursive. I used to take notes in cursive while in college with a Schaeffer blue ink fountain pen (I love fountain pens) and wrote in legible cursive in blue books on tests and exams and even wrote letters home in cursive back in the day. I have still have an old stack of letters that I wrote home to my folks when I was in the Navy that are like time capsules of all the things that I experienced back then which I’m saving for my kids and grandkids. And I’m still trying to learn calligraphy just because I love the beauty of well written words strung together in a coherent fashion. Yup, I’m a dinosaur, hooray for me! And if the world ever goes to hell in a hand basket it’ll be us old farts who will save the day because we can still read and write without the aid of a computer or tablet, smart phone etc. I really hate texting, it takes the meaning out of everything and shortens it to the lowest stupid common denominator.

  13. I have even produced $19,570 only in thirty days just working a few easy tasks from a laptop. Immediately once I’ve lost my previous position, I was very distressed and thankfully I have discovered this best on-line opportunity that’s why zzx I could make thousands staying at home. Everyone can certainly join this best work & collect extra

  14. Let me get this straight! If you graduate from a high school in Oregon, you cannot do anything at all? then why have public education? Just abolish it and let everyone fend for themselves!
