Everything is dumbed down to help the non-whites and non-asians.
For the city, and probably other school districts across the state, another factor is cheating by school administrators. De Blasio’s system can’t seem to go a year without some new grade-fixing or bogus “credit recovery” scandal surfacing in The Post, thanks mostly to outraged teachers.
Without grade fixing and affirmative action grading, 90% of blacks would not graduate. But they do graduate even though they read at the 3rd grade level.
