Looks like Oregon Governor Kate Brown is continuing to keep turning out generation after generation of Antifa and BLM activists.
As evidenced by a unanimous vote by the Oregon State Board of Education to extend the tenets of Senate Bill 744 for another five more years.
Brown stunned conservatives when she signed Senate Bill 744 on July 14, 2021, allegedly to give students a helping hand during COVID.
Per the tenets of the bill, students do not have to prove basic proficiency in math, reading, or writing before graduation.
In other words, students receive a participation diploma for (barely) attending high school, and they apparently don’t even have to read in order to receive said diploma.
Curiously, the bill was not advertised widely to the public, and it did not appear in the state database until July 29, 2021.
Hilariously, Charles Boyle, who serves as Governor Brown’s deputy communications director, claimed that the pro-illiteracy move would benefit minority students, including “Oregon’s Black, Latino, Latina, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Tribal, and students of color.”
Way to call out multiple groups as illiterate and incapable of doing basic math.
Could Dems be even more patronizing to individuals from racial minority backgrounds?
Apparently, if Boyle’s continued commentary is anything to go by, they can.
“Leaders from those communities have advocated time and again for equitable graduation standards, along with expanded learning opportunities and supports,” Boyle boomed.
So, in other words, widespread illiteracy is “equity.” Got it.
Little wonder that Oregon is one of the states most besieged by various “protestors.”
Of course, some school board members insist that nothing is wrong with Senate Bill 744.
“The only thing we are suspending is the inappropriate use of how those assessments were being used,” state board member Vicky López Sánchez asserted.
López is also, unsurprisingly, a dean at Portland Community College, underscoring the rot within the nation’s collegiate system.
“I think that really is in the best interest of Oregon students,” López added haughtily.
Oh, of course! Because Oregon students really benefit from being unable to read, write, or do basic (if any) math.
Oregon Moms Union President MacKensey Pulliam is disgusted by the latest pro-illiteracy move from the government, underscoring how pointless an Oregon public school education has become at this point in time.
“So really, they’ve kind of essentially made an Oregon high school diploma a participation trophy because they’re not requiring students to be able to prove that they can read and do math at an 11th-grade level in order to graduate,” Pulliam said in disgust.
Former gubernatorial candidate Christine Drazan, who unfortunately lost the race in Oregon by just four percent, thanks to the ultra-woke coastal enclave of Portland, argued that the state is continuing to disempower minority students.
“They are now moving forward with an agenda that says if you cheat, you can’t be flunked. If you don’t show up, you don’t get a zero … They’re not going to have homework that they grade because having homework somehow they view as being inequitable,” Drazan said in disbelief.
Yep. And if kids barely show up to school, chances are they’ll do even less with their homework.
“It is not bigoted, it is not racist to want your student to be able to actually learn,” Drazan added pointedly.
Yes. But if students actually learn, then they likely wouldn’t vote Democrat.
Hence the Dems’ longstanding pro-illiteracy plans, coupled with a healthy dose of Marxism.
One can only hope the future GOP president will defund the Department of Education (DOE), which appears primarily focused on turning out illiterate Americans who protest in favor of anti-American terrorists, amongst other violent causes.
