Test scores reveal that high schoolers have lost ground in their ability to pass tests. Teachers stopped teaching basic skills long ago, before the current crop of teachers started school.

You're so right!!! Our schools are flooded with American kids that are didn't get a good start coming from homes that cared less about education. The kids were parked in front of TVs,let do as they please,allowed to be foul mouthed and ruled their parents with bad behavior and temper tantrums. Then the magic day comes when the "parents" as they would like to be called,send the little monsters off to terrorize the kids that are there to learn. When the first parent-teacher conference is called, it's always the mean ole teachers fault. I'm all for having video surveillance in the classrooms and going back to the old Reform Schools of yesterday to keep the troublemakers out of the classrooms until they can learn to behave and be normal members of our society. I rest my case.

Oregonians are idiots. The parents are lazy bums and their children are lazy bums.

It is as simple as that.

And you are so educated that you don't even know that "english" is spelled with a capital E-English!

Scores will decline in proportion to increasing
numbers of Hispanics and Blacks. Just reality.
