September 17 is Constitution Day. A day meant to celebrate the signing of the constitution. Sorry all you gov. workers you don't get another day off, but it was meant that all schools receiving federal funds to take the day and study the constitution. Wonder if the rethugs will call this a communist plot. Wouldn't want the sheeple actually understanding how our government is supposed to work.
On that note some whiz bang educator here is wanting to lower the graduation requirements to a D average. If their resolution is passed all Seattle schools will be turning out more Bushs onto society. Looking back to when I was a supervisor in the 80s many of the kids who graduated from high school were functionally illiterate. I had to supervise them. And that was when the drop out rate was near the highest in the nation. Truly strange considering this state sells more books than anywhere else. Most private schools require a B- for passing. Top this off with the elimination of the WASIL tests required for graduation and we won't be able to compete with Chinese slave labor. There's a lot of training programs being put together right now but with the illiterate lot that will be graduating I see no bright future for this country. I didn't know stupid was a god given right.
