First Common Core High School Grads Worst-Prepared For College In 15 Years

 “The results are, frankly, devastating,” said U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement about the 2019 NAEP results.
This is the opposite of what we were told would happen with trillions of taxpayer dollars and an entire generation of children who deserve not to have been guinea pigs in a failed national experiment.

For the third time in a row since Common Core was fully phased in nationwide, U.S. student test scores on the nation’s broadest and most respected test have dropped, a reversal of an upward trend between 1990 and 2015. Further, the class of 2019, the first to experience all four high school years under Common Core, is the worst-prepared for college in 15 years, according to a new report.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress is a federally mandated test given every other year in reading and mathematics to students in grades four and eight. (Periodically it also tests other subjects and grade levels.) In the latest results, released Wednesday, American students slid yet again on nearly every measure.


  1. This is what Betsy DeVoss was talking about the other day.

  2. To play Devil's Advocate, it is possible but not certain that "Common Core" had anything to do with this.

    We've spent the past fifteen years bringing in fast-breeding illiterate IQ-55 Third World peasants from the most backward, dysfunctional, violent cultures on Earth, by the tens of millions. And you say suddenly average test scores are down? Surely it's a coincidence, good sir. Surely. Next you'll try to tell me that water is wet.

    1. That's true however, there weren't enough admitted to make much difference in the nation's scores. Have you researched CC?
