Considering the fact that the current POTUS would miserably fail a pop high school Civics test, is it any wonder?
Intentional pun, or proximity of keyboard “v” to “g”? Anyway, also IMHO, it is even worse in Math. I taught and tutored at a community college, and the rate was 40% remedial English and 55% remedial Math. It is funny how so many people proudly declare, “I don’t understand Math,” who would never, ever claim to be functionally illiterate (even if they are).
Ok, ok… no snarky bicycle seat comments.
This is real. A disturbing number of high school graduates can’t do basic Arithmetic or comprehend a paragraph at a 6th-grade reading level. About half need remedial courses in English, Math or both. At some 2-year colleges this figure is around 80%. It is a failure of the public school system, and a society that places more value on self-esteem than performance. The T-ball mentality goes right up through 12th grade; students aren’t prepared for a reality where there are few winners and many losers.
A terrible accident involving a meteorite and a wireless router?
Don’t we all? Sigh…
Of course it’s more fun to risk one’s life. A roller coaster without hills is a train ride.
It went on to lead The Future in “Sleeper.”
It’s the comics. It’s ok to laugh. Jeez, get a grip.
