Don’t sweat the SAT’s

As Colleges Move To Do Away With The SAT In The Name Of Diversity, Detroit High School Valedictorian Struggles With Low-Level Math

In 2016, MSU removed the requirement that all students at least take algebra in either college or high school. Algebra is taught in eighth grade in many schools. Meanwhile, Wayne State University in Detroit dropped its general-education math requirement altogether.

Bob Murphy, the director or university relations and policy for the Michigan Association of State Universities, told Inside Higher Ed that not requiring math will ideally “lead to more successful graduation outcomes.”

More successful graduation outcomes, and disastrous life outcome.  Sooner or later, these coddled and unchallenged so-called ‘Students’ are going to hit a wall in real life.

These ‘diverse’ students will end up too stupid to pick cotton.
