Equality is evil
Apr 24, 2021
The government can't magically turn the poor into rich. However, it is supremely competent at doing the opposite. A similar logic applies with education:
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is moving to eliminate all accelerated math options prior to 11th grade, effectively keeping higher-achieving students from advancing as they usually would in the school system.
At least the dumb kids will feel so much better about themselves.
The changes were just the latest of many to prompt concern from parents in the state, which has seen in-fighting over controversial ideas surrounding equity and race.
A Loudoun parent who spoke on the condition of anonymity worried that the changes would "lower standards for all students in the name of equity."
