  •  At my daughter's HS here in AL (3+ / 0-)

    taking AP or IB is the only way to get out of classes with the mind-numbingly stupid kids, though not a guarantee. She is learning skills that she will need in college, which are not taught in regular classes. They only "teach to the test". However, I read a paper by one of her classmates in pre-AP English (a class to prep you for AP in 11th grade), and found no less than 5 automatic F grammar errors in his one-page paper! Many of the colleges she's interested in do not accept AP scores in lieu of actual classes, but she has to try and find a way to avoid all the dumbasses in her school. BTW, Her school has a 97% 2 and 4 year college acceptance rate. 80% 4-year rate.

      are not mind-numbingly stupid. They have been "numbed" by something called Mind shame.

      They are not stupid at all. Nor are they dumbasses. Sorry to jump in but this hurts.  

      I can do everything but earn a living.
