...with, of course, that exceedingly rare exception of an ENTIRE FRESHMEN CLASS EVERY DAMNED YEAR!

No new students? Is that what they told you, 97? They probably just didn`t want to your your feelings.

"Almost always these policies are done for really good motives," said Gary Orfield, who directs the Civil Rights Project at UCLA

It`s called feel-good liberalism. It rarely works.

A. Most of them aren`t stupid, they`re just lazy.

B. College prep classes should be OFFERED to everyone, not forced, as should vocational classes. Most high schoolers are not college material. Neither are most college students.

C. It`s not a "backhanded way to boost college tuition" since most Cali colleges are hardly accepting any new students.

Not everybody should have to take college prep classes. I`d be happy if they had to learn the basics very well, but that includes more history and civics and science classes, not just reading, writing and basic math.

That`s totally the answer. Kids are too stupid? Make school easier. That`s great for the long term.

It is a backhanded way to boost tuition at UCLA by creating more room for out-of-state students.

"No, the kids from private schools will be."

Private schools have lower standards due to rampant grade inflation.

No, the kids from private schools will be. These kids will be on welfare.

"Sorry, easing up unrealistic and pointless standards makes sense. Sorry, if you are going to be a cashier or garbageman, do you really need a bachelor`s degree?"
no, but one day your kid(s) will be in the 4th grade and they`re going to ask for help on their math homework. Wouldn`t want to look stupid now would we?

@verbosity -Do you believe most people know what they are going to do for a living when they are in high school? It helps to have a breadth of knowledge when you decide to change your mind.

From the article: "Eight years ago, the Los Angeles Board of Education adopted an ambitious plan to have all students take college-prep classes to raise academic standards in the nation`s second-largest school district.

Am I the only one who thinks it is inane to think every single high-school student is college bound? College is not free - it is a major investment, and one who`s cost is rising drastically. Who really benefits?

Sorry, easing up unrealistic and pointless standards makes sense. Sorry, if you are going to be a cashier or garbageman, do you really need a bachelor`s degree?

I`ve seen a lot of stupid people who have made it through college. It`s funny how the work force will raise it`s standards and the schools do the opposite.

"If a kid can`t handle highschool, they don`t deserve a diploma."

NCLB legislation changed the general requirements to graduate to match the entry requirements for college. In essence forcing all students onto the college track and gutting practical arts/vocational classes (auto-shop, wood shop, textiles, etc.) since they are not a `successful` career path according to the politicians.

Many kids know that they aren`t going to college so there is little point for them to stick with the program the way it currently stands.

"Y`know, if all parents are gonna do is act as if it is free daycare, they shouldn`t complain when their kids learn a lot less."

Fixed it for you Baelzar.

On the other side, due to lack of funding over the past several years in the state and layoffs, teachers are dealing with 40-45 students per class. Some classes are so overcrowded that kids have to sit on the floor.

I don`t understand why they are so concerned about kids dropping out. If a kid can`t handle highschool, they don`t deserve a diploma. Stuff like this is the reason why there are so many people with college degrees that don`t deserve them, making them close to worthless.

Why lift the children when you can just drop the education level? Lots easier. And let`s never, ever mention parental responsibility for educational goals. EVER.

But the media portrays teachers as "Heros"...every one of them.
It cannot be that they have collectively failed us!
Say it ain`t so!

If they(Kids) want to be ignorant, let them-just stop allowing them to go on welfare, food stamps, medicaid/medicare, or into public housing.
I think that it would be amusing to use the statistics of which countries most of our illegal immigrants come from, and send the dregs of our society to them. Probably save us a bunch of money, and give those nations a taste of what we experience here.

Awesome.

Y`know, if all they`re gonna do is act as daycare, they should charge taxpayers a lot less.

The saddest part of this is that the students wouldn`t be able to pass these classes. California education FTL.
