Not a single state was able to improve test scores for math
NOVEMBER 02, 2022
Math Scores Fell in Nearly Every State, and Reading Dipped on National Exam.
The results, from what is known as the nation’s report card, offer the most definitive picture yet of the pandemic’s devastating impact on students.
Now here’s a real shocker: the Stupid-19 lock-downs of the nation’s schools and the associated era of “virtual learning” turned out to have had a severely negative impact on academic progress. From the article:
“U.S. students in most states and across almost all demographic groups have experienced troubling setbacks in both math and reading, according to an authoritative national exam released on Monday, offering the most definitive indictment yet of the pandemic’s impact on millions of schoolchildren.
In math, the results were especially devastating, representing the steepest declines ever recorded on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, known as the nation’s report card, which tests a broad sampling of fourth and eighth graders and dates to the early 1990’s.”
Apart from the fact that the whole bloody “pandemic” drama of 2020-2022 was a HOAX — even if, for sake of argument, we were to accept the moronic myth as real; the fact remains that school age children were always invulnerable to this “virus” which, like all other cold & flu illnesses, disproportionately impacted the elderly. The closing of schools — enthusiastically embraced by the Communist Teacher’s Unions — was totally uncalled for and contrary to “the science .” The children were dumb enough to begin with — without mentally stunting them out of a whole year of reading, writing and arithmetic. Somebody has got to pay for this — and all of the other hurtful policies that people were made to suffer through as well.
1. Remote learning was a joke. // 2. Pure child abuse on so many levels. // 3.Lesbian Randi Weingarten — president of the American Federation of Teachers — was a forceful advocate for school closures.
As is often the case in post-mania, clearer and calmer thinking is now overtaking the irrationality. In hindsight, most rational people understand by now that the school closure scheme advocated by the Left was a really bad (evil) idea. In fact, the Marxists and Libtards themselves aren’t even defending their past actions anymore. We now witness a new pattern of “gas-lighting” – which goes like this: “Let us not focus on the past. Let us move forward to help the children.”
Here are a few examples of this latest save-our-ass talking point:
* From today’s Times article: Kevin Huffman, former Education Commissioner of Tennessee, urged leaders to: “set aside finger pointing about what went wrong during the pandemic, and instead make a moral commitment to helping students recover.”
* The aforementioned Randi Weingarten: “The bottom line is that everyone suffered. We are now focused on the urgent need to help kids recover and thrive.”
* In a story for the Globalist Atlantic Magazine titled, “Let’s Declare a Pandemic Amnesty,” Ivy League Professorete Emily Oster writes: “We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID.”
“Let’s all just “move on” like nothing happened, right? Sure, mistakes were made, but let’s look forward, not backwards. Screw that! The purposefully guilty as well as the sanctimoniously stupid must be punished severely. Justice demands blood!
Huffman — Weingarten — Oster”No finger pointing.” — Let’s “forgive” and “move on.”
On the other end of the life spectrum, another class of victims, the elderly, suffered horribly and needlessly. Those fortunate enough to have not been misdiagnosed with “Covid” and then ventilator murdered were still made to endure 1-2 years of unnecessary and unhealthy isolation by their stupid normie children.
Funerals cancelled, weddings cancelled, businesses ruined and inflation through the roof. Again, even if one were to accept the false underlying premise of Stupid-19, the “cure,” by any objective standard, turned out to be far worse than disease. They have got to pay for this!
This talk about “amnesty” is a good indicator that “they” fear that accountability is coming. Let us see what the coming new MAGA Congress majority — whose leading members have already promised to investigate the infamous Dr. Falsie — will bring.
