    College entrance test scores collapse across America as dumbed-down liberal education

    College entrance test scores collapse across America as dumbed-down liberal education system teaches “social justice” instead of thinking skills

    (Natural News) The group behind the ACT college entrance examination is reporting that test scores for the Class of 2018 have reached their lowest levels in decades, suggesting that the leftist-contaminated public education system is now in total free fall mode.
    According to The Condition of College and Career Readiness 2018, the ACT group’s annual report, this year’s graduating class performed especially poorly in math, though scores were admittedly dismal in the other categories as well. All in all, American students appear to have been dumbed down to their lowest level yet – and this could just be the beginning.
    “The percentage of ACT-tested graduates who met or surpassed the ACT College Readiness Benchmark in math – suggesting they are ready to succeed in a first-year college algebra class – fell to its lowest level since 2004,” the report explains.
    Only 40 percent of 2018 graduates met this benchmark, the report adds, explaining further that this is “down from a high of 46 percent in 2012.”
    As for the ACT test as a whole, average scores reportedly reached their lowest level in 20 years at 20.5 on a scale from 1 to 36. Last year the average was 20.7, while back in 2012 it was 21.1 – all of this pointing to a precipitous, year-after-year decline in aptitude.
    “The negative trend in math readiness is a red flag for our country, given the growing importance of math and science skills in the increasingly tech-driven U.S. and global job market,” stated ACT CEO Marten Roorda.
    “It is vital that we turn this trend around for the next generation and make sure students are learning the math skills they need for success in college and career.”

    Yo hablo espanol? ACT scores in English drop to lowest levels EVER


    As for the other categories on the ACT test, English and science, scores also dropped – particularly in English. While English scores have been down-trending over the past several years, according to the report, they set a new and disturbing record this past year.
    “Readiness in English has also been trending down over the past several years, dropping from 64 percent in 2015 to 60 percent this year, the lowest level since the benchmarks were introduced,” the report reveals.
    “Readiness levels in reading (46 percent) and science (36 percent) were both down one percentage point from last year but are showing no long-term trends either upward or downward. Science remains the subject area in which students are least likely to be prepared for college coursework.”
    According to Paula Bolyard from PJMedia.com, much of the problem lies with how students are being taught these days. The simultaneous implementation of dumbing-down teaching methods like “common core,” for instance, and decreasing college entrance examination scores point to a total failure of “progressive” curriculum to instill in today’s students the skills and understanding they need to succeed.
    Keep in mind that the ACT is “a curriculum-based achievement test,” the purpose of which is to evaluate the skills being taught to students in school. If students aren’t performing well on the ACT, in other words, then they’re not being taught said skills, nor are they gaining basic academic knowledge and the wherewithal to read, write, solve math problems.
    “I think testimony we took during our attempts to eradicate Common Core showed the dumbing down of curriculum, the social justice indoctrination, the emphasis on social-emotional learning, reduced quantity and quality of reading, emphasizing screen time rather than classroom instruction,” stated Ohio state Representative Andy Thompson, a well-known Common Core critic.
    Common Core, he says, represents the “destruction of proper math,” and the curriculum as a whole places “a higher priority on indoctrination than education.”

    Anyone who thought Bill Gates who didn't even finish college, was the guy to revamp education in the United States was an idiot.

    9 Years Into Obama’s Common Core – Math Scores at 20 Year Low and Falling

    November 6, 2018 Baxter Dmitry News, US 1



    Nine years after Barack Obama forced schools around the country to adopt Common Core, teachers are coming forward with results to prove the controversial teaching method is a failure, and significantly less effective than traditional teaching methods.
    Parents and teachers across the nation are now urging schools to dump the toxic Common Core curriculum, arguing that it deliberately dumbs down children and creates unnecessary and complicated methods for working out relatively simple problems.

    Students are recording results lower than previously thought possible, and frustrated teachers are warning that “if we do nothing” about Common Core the results “will keep on declining.”
    The newest batch of ACT scores show “dangerous long-term declines in performance,” with students’ math achievement reaching a new 20-year low, according to results released last month.
    The average math score for the graduating class of 2018 was 20.5, marking a steady decline from 20.9 five years ago, and virtually no progress since 1998, when it was 20.6. Each of the four sections of the college-entrance exam is graded on a 36-point scale.
    We’re at a very dangerous point. And if we do nothing, it will keep on declining,” ACT’s chief executive officer, Marten Roorda, said in an interview.
    Education Weeks reports: The pattern in math scores is particularly worrisome at a time when strong math skills are important for the science, engineering, and technology jobs that play powerful roles in the U.S. economy, he said.
    Matt Larson, the immediate past president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, said the math scores “are extremely disappointing, but not entirely unexpected.

    Concerns About College Readiness
    While the trends in ACT math were worrisome, the scores in English didn’t offer much cause for celebration, either. The average score for the class of 2018 was 20.2, the same as five years ago, and down half a point from the English-score high in 2007.
    On the science section of the ACT, students in the class of 2018 averaged 20.7, down from 21 in 2017, and about the same as five years ago.
    The national average composite score for the class of 2018 was 20.8, down from 21 in 2017 and about the same as in 2016.
    Math and English scores drew the attention of the ACT by another measure, too: readiness for college-level work. The ACT’s score benchmarks are correlated with the likelihood of earning Bs or Cs in credit-bearing coursework. And increasing numbers of students are falling short.
    Only 4 in 10 met the math benchmark, the lowest level since 2004, and down from 46 percent in 2012. Six in 10 met the English benchmark, the lowest level since the benchmarks were introduced in 2002.
    It’s going to take a lot more than acknowledging Common Core’s failure to make up for the years of classroom chaos that the Bill Gates/Barack Obama curriculum inflicted on many teachers and students without their consent. A direct apology and a promise to stay away from our kids and their education in the future would be a start.
