Oh that makes sense

Watching Bill. Apparently Florida has some kind of high school exit exam that students there can't graduate without passing, and they get five tries. No biggie -- they have the same type of thing in my old school district. The lovely ACLU is protesting this exam because more white students than black students pass it. They contend that it means white students get a better education than blacks and therefore the exit exam is discriminatory. Never mind that there is no evidence to support that, and that assuming it's an education matter is completely ignoring a plethora of social and family issues.

Of course, this has nothing to do with race. It's just another example of our nation's education system being taken down to meet the lowest common denominator.

Yeah... pet peeve... how'd you guess? ;)
