Anyone want to take a guess on why this is? Roll Eyes


Quote:
SAN DIEGO (AP) — A group of prominent lawyers representing teachers and students from poor performing schools sued California on Tuesday, arguing that the state has done nothing about a high number of schoolchildren who do not know how to read.

The advocacy law firm, Public Counsel, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to demand the California Department of Education address its "literacy crisis." The state has not followed suggestions from its own report on the problem five years ago, the lawsuit said.

"When it comes to literacy and the delivery of basic education, California is dragging down the nation," said Public Counsel lawyer Mark Rosenbaum, who sued along with the law firm Morrison & Foerster.

Assessments found less than half of California students from third grade to fifth grade have met statewide literacy standards since 2015. Both traditional and charter schools are failing, Rosenbaum said.

Of the 26 lowest-performing districts in the nation, 11 are in California, according to the lawsuit. Texas, the largest state after California, has only one district among the 26.

Could it possibly be that California is basically a sanctuary state and has a large number of illegal alien children who did not learn to read?  Heck, a lot of them had to learn to speak English before learning to read it.  I don't believe that sanctuary cities or states care about the kids.  They just care about getting voters, legal or illegal.  A lot of the school systems south of our border (wherever the heck that is on any given day) are not up to par (just as California's schools are becoming).  It's easy to bring down things like reading scores; harder to bring them up.

I'm certainly not going to defend any school system south of the border.

Quite a lot of errors in the language contained within the OP quote.
Was it written in California?
