Students are graduating from high school with such watered-down graduation requirements that the high school diploma has been rendered meaningless.

The high school exit exam that was required to graduate has been eliminated. To show you how ludicrous this is, students can get a high school diploma for just showing up for classes.

Students who have failed can do make-up work but are working at a much lower standard than they were in their non-makeup classes.

Another ludicrous act is that a “student who failed the exam in past years can now apply to get their diplomas retroactively.”

With all due respect, a voter without a high school diploma can affect the outcome of an election by not understanding the issues at hand, and he or she can be reeled in to believing what a candidate is saying is true, even if it’s false.

The core system advocates passing a class only if you have a complete understanding of that class. But Trump wants to eliminate the core system, which is needed to ensure a student can at least graduate with a complete understanding of his or her academic courses.

    That’s something you can thank the democrat controlled teachers unions for. Keep providing college students with safe spaces and puppy videos and soon a college degree will be just as worthless.

    “Trump’s choice to be secretary of education.”
    “Betsy DeVos of Michigan
    She is also a declared convert against Common Core, …”

    “COMMON CORE In an interview with Fox News in October last year, Mr. Trump said: “I may cut Department of Education. I believe Common Core is a very bad thing.”

    “Common Core standards, an initiative to standardize educational requirements throughout the nation, were adopted by states. Under a recently enacted law, the federal government is prohibited from telling states what educational standards to adopt. So the Department of Education has no authority over Common Core .”

    Zuckerberg has said he’ll look into ways to identify misinformation, but scoffed at the “fake news” theory of the election. “Voters make decisions based on their lived experience,” he said after the election. “I think there is a certain profound lack of empathy in asserting that the only reason why someone could have voted the way they did is because they saw some fake news.”

    Zuckerberg hit the nail on the head. Rather than deal with the lack of connection that Clinton and Democrats made with voters — including in House, Senate, and state legislative races — Democrats and the media would prefer to reject those voters as hicks and rubes who can’t tell the difference between facts and opinions, and between false stories and facts. It goes beyond a lack of empathy; it’s outright contempt.

    That contempt from elites in media and politics may or may not have produced the electoral results seen two weeks ago, but it certainly explains the shock that has resulted from it. That contempt is also reflected in the push to shut down commentary and pressure Facebook into editing their social media network to allow only those sources deemed acceptable by those in power, politically and culturally. They are creating a new social panic within their own circles and doubling down on paternalism. Don’t expect that to end well when the midterm elections roll around in two years.

    The teacher unions are the problem. End of story.
    Look in the mirror.
