Today in the phoenix area, one hospital declared "Black", just plain closed. Another, where our family member is in supply, tried to order more beds for the hospital and could only get less.
I told my husband, nurses are so needed. Husband said, "Problem is those who apply can not make the pre requisite. " They are tested to see if they can get in for school/college and they can't.
That goes to show that "Outcome Based" (dumbing down) education is working!! Communism at it's best!!
I have no regrets of home schooling our kids! I know for a fact, that if we did not home school, we would have had regrets.
I spoke to a teacher in the Buckeye area and he said that the kids in his High School Class for physics, can not read his writings on the black board. I replied, it's the Twilight zone! And the state will see to it, that these kids are going to have a diploma! They are illiterate! Even more than that! Illiterate is defined as grade 6 (?) level. Meaning they can read and write on that level. Question now is, did the definition of illiteracy change.
