Weapons of Math Destruction just released another cartoon that, unfortunately, is right on the mark.
Have any parents felt this way? Bueller? Bueller?
Yep, I liked this one, too, Matthew.
Not only is this true for educrats, but for other parents who try to “one-up” each other in how much “better” their child does.
Sad to say how much truth there is in humor.
I’m speaking as a parent and as a grad. student in this. It’s scary how everyone turns on each other.
Having been a teacher and now a parent involved in the curriculum, the degree in which the educrats have gone off into deep left field is amazing.
Somehow they confuse 6 & 7 year old children with grad students.
It never ceases to amaze me what they expect a child to be able to do. To quote my daughter best on a recent Language Arts 1st grade homework question:
(poem on rain)
Question: How do you think the person in the poem feels about staying dry?
My 6 yr old daughter’s answer: I don’t care.
She’s bored to death of History which isn’t history at all but Anthropology. Go figure, Egyptology, the Trojan War and the Iliad might be a tad beyond her since she is still learning to read.
But educrats can’t be bothered with details like that. Kids should know what cumulonimbus clouds are by the age of 7 and be able to tell you about Hatshepsut despite the lack of their front teeth to pronounce the words.
I love it!
