We were told that Diversity and Vibrancy make America stronger. The truth is that they have made America literally stupid, ignorant, illiterate, and innumerate:
In the Detroit public school district, 96 percent of eighth graders are not proficient in mathematics and 93 percent are not proficient in reading. That is according to the results of the 2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress tests published by the Department of Education’s National Center for Educational Statistics.
Only 4 percent of Detroit public school eighth graders are proficient or better in math and only 7 percent in reading. This is despite the fact that in the 2011-2012 school year—the latest for which the Department of Education has reported the financial data—the Detroit public schools had “total expenditures” of $18,361 per student and “current expenditures” of $13,330 per student.
According to data published by the Detroit Public Schools, the school district’s operating expenses in the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2014 amounted to approximately $14,743 per student.
Nationwide, only 33 percent of public-school eighth graders scored proficient or better in reading in 2015 and only 32 percent scored proficient or better in mathematics.
This isn’t public schools. This isn’t bureaucratic inefficiency. It isn’t Common Core or whatever the latest school fad is. It is the direct result of shortening time preferences and lowering the average IQ by 15 points.
And there isn’t a theory or a social policy in the world that can fix that. There is one answer and one answer only, an answer that every immigrant implicitly knows and nearly every American is afraid to admit, even to himself.
