Below is a paste job from Don Surber, which is mostly a paste job from Weasel Zippers, which is almost entirely a paste job from the WaPo.
Here's my election related point.
What you're expected to believe is:
1. These results of school shutdowns were somehow unforeseeable;
2. By November 4 parents had somehow not caught on to the ongoing disaster; and
3. They voted for a continuation of these policies.
I'm just not buying any of that. To me, you can add the education issue to the overall common sense argument that there's no way that this election was not RIGGED. Yes, people are gullible, but parents of school age children can't possibly be THAT gullible. Which suggests that a reckoning awaits when people finally catch on to the fact that, not only has the lockdown policy been wrongheaded and unjustified, but the entire Covid Hoax was no more than a follow on to the failed Global Warming hoax.
Of course, don't expect total truth from a WaPo story. They start out telling you that "those with disabilities and English-language learners" are the students who have been hardest hit. But later we read that "Middle-schoolers reported an overall 300% increase in F’s, while high-schoolers reported a 50% increase." Excuse me. Those percentages can't possibly be accounted for just by "those with disabilities and English-language learners." There's more to that story.
ITEM 10: Via Weasel Zippers, the Washington Post reported, "Online learning is causing a serious drop in academic achievement in Virginia’s largest school system, according to a Fairfax County Public Schools study, and the most vulnerable students — those with disabilities and English-language learners — are struggling the most.
"Between the last academic year and this one, which for most students is taking place remotely, the percentage of F’s earned by middle school and high school students jumped from 6% of all grades to 11% — representing an overall increase of 83% from 2019 to 2020. Younger students were more seriously affected than older ones: Middle-schoolers reported an overall 300% increase in F’s, while high-schoolers reported a 50% increase.
"The effects were particularly pronounced among students with disabilities, who saw their percentage of F’s increase by 111% to account for nearly 20% of all grades achieved, and among children for whom English is a second language: Their percentage of F’s rose by 106% to account for 35 percent of all grades achieved."
No problem. They'll all get diplomas and get into the best schools. F is for effort, right?
