Dropping Out-Turning Off
I have commented to anyone who would listen that there is a concerted effort among conservatives ala Ronald Reagan, to dumb down the American public. Yesterday it was reported, the US quietly pulled out of an international math and science test which compares participants in other countries and lists the result. US scores have been dropping the last several years, and last year found the only students performing more poorly, in Cypress and South Africa. Nice to know the right-wing's plans are proceeding unopposed..
