1411 This is a perfect example of conflating "equality" and "equity". Her son's achievement via home schooling is considered a bad thing, because he's a smart kid who was actually educated.

If you've never seen the movie "Idiocracy", watch it.
Here's the trailer - https://youtu.be/eLRuTImZYGc
Here's the movie.
I came here to point out something related from the other day that I found while I was looking up Kat Dennings (bc 2 Broke Girls)
And my own dumb@$$ dropped out of college at 12 because I wanted to be with other kids....smh
Cool link. I'm going to check that out later. 👍
Nice link. Thank you kind pede!
Seen it, we are living it Scro!
Yea, except our Idiocracy doesn't have a kick ass president who wants to fix the burrito coverin' shortage and the crops, we got stuck with a geriatric pedophile who seems determined to make everything worse.
You mean our President is tarded?
He's not fit to be the greeter at Costco.
Welcome to Costco, I EHGK IOF RIDFN you!
The cart collection guy would have the extra task of wrangling the old guy who keeps wandering around the parking lot and harassing the children.
Welcome to Costco. I love you.
how old are you kiddo? 21?
What part is that from?
Yes his shit's all retarded and he talks like a fag.
Hey brah, lots of tards live Kick-Ass lives!
Lots of tards are living really kickass lives
True, I'm going to run out to Starbucks to get a hand job!
But only after going to car'ls junior and getting a side of EXTRA BIGASS FRIES
The good thing is Mark is 100% vaccinated.
He is protected and will continue to be able to fight another day on behalf of all the dead African Americans this country was built on the back of.
Equity is code for communism.
Not “code”, dog whistle! Use their weaponized language against them!
I purposely didn’t use that word. Cuz it’s fake and gay.
I would only use it in a satirical sense.
Kurt Vonnegut wrote a short story about this very thing back in 1961. Harrison Bergeron: https://archive.org/stream/HarrisonBergeron/Harrison%20Bergeron_djvu.txt
If you haven't read it already, go check out a short story by Kurt Vonnegut called "Harrison Bergeron". It was written decades ago, but perfectly exemplifies what you're talking about, where a push to make everyone equal is ACTUALLY just a rush to the bottom, because there's no way to make the weakest,slowest, dumbest members of society as good as the best... but you can sure as hell make people lesser.
Well, they did have a movie that was based on the short story, that starred Sean Astin; I'll assume that's what you saw, unless you read it online or heard an audiobook. If so, it departs from the book because it has to pad out for time, and the story itself is pretty short.
The basic point of the story is that the totalitarian government of the future world has made it their primary mandate to make everyone equal, but the problem is that humanity is not composed of equal people; there are always people who are tall/short, fat/thin, strong/weak, etc. The government can't bring the lowest up to the place the greatest are at, so their 'solution' is to try and weaken the great so they can be at the bottom with everyone else. It's an attempt to state that while equality is all well and good, ABSOLUTE equality is hell, especially if it's enforced arbitrarily by Big Government.
The worst part about the story, both the original and the works based upon it, is that the government is not portrayed as nakedly evil: they'll use extreme tactics and they'll do terrible things, but in their heart of hearts they actually believe they're doing the right thing; they're not, but they think they are, and I suspect the globalist Elites who're doing all this are of the same mindset: they probably all truly think they're doing the world a favor by enacting these changes.
Precisely, they're up their in their gated communities and whatnot, breathing the rarified air not realizing it's just the smell of their own bullshit. People like Bill Gates have never understood what the common man's experience is, but he presumes, like a feudal lord of old, that what the 'herd' needs is a good culling.
reading that story these days, I can picture Hillary as the Handicapper General
something that always bothered me about the story is that while Vonnegut warns about forced equality, he also seems to be saying that anyone who is exceptional will immediately take advantage of others. It's the latter parts of the story that take away from the larger message, for me
Vonnegut, and this is just my own perception of this work, was kind of an all-or-nothing kind of guy; he didn't really do middle-of-the-road type stories. Also, to be fair to him, the story is pseudo-science fiction, so it might be assuming that this future culture is different than ours.
“Completed his education in half the time? He must of only learnt half the material!!!”
Schools generally slow down the material, sometimes to half the rate of a college course, simply because the average highschool student might not retain the material at a faster pace. Compared to the college level, where failure to keep up often on the student(who is paying for the course), highschool level courses need as many students to pull through as possible at a certain level.
He's missed out on all that CRT and didn't get hazed and beat up by "classmates" with room temperature IQ
Being cooped up with 30 other kids all day, some of them dumb as fuck, and getting only minutes of 1:1 time with the teacher is not how you prepare a kid to be a responsible citizen
It is how you train sheep though. I’ve got 2 days left in education and then I’m out after 9 years. Im also going to homeschool starting in 6th grade because the middle schools near me are absolute shit holes. I know because that’s where I work currently.
They fear homeschoolers.
Yeah because homeschooling breaks their plan to turn everyone into indoctrinated morons.
I believe my home schooled children will be millionaires by 25. They have a blend of my wife's and my intelligence. Plus they aren't trans so that is a plus.
Also, Biden has almost 2 years left to destroy our economy. When he is done, 1million may need to be the fed min. wag.
I graduated homeschooling at 16 with 2 semester dual credit from the community College already completed. Eventually life led me to become a clinical prof at a t1 institution. My best students were always either homeschooled or the top of the class kid from a small town school.
Of all my circle of college buddies from my first few years of college, the best overall student among us was the homeschooled student. He also had a trove of extracurricular activities growing up, and friends from back home, so he wasn't sheltered.
You give us hope.
In high school, I would get assigned in-school suspension fairly regularly due to too much clowning around during class. While in in-school suspension, I'd sit in a quiet room all day, at a desk with high walls on the side and be given all of the assignments for my classes that day. I would sit silently and complete the work. While I was a lackluster student in class, it always amazed me that I could knock out a full days worth of work, plus homework, usually within half a day. Had I spent a whole year in in-school suspension, I would've been a straight A student. A lot can get done when you set your own pace.
You are misunderstanding. He "learned half of" the indoctrination.
What Mark think they "should" learn is details of anal sex, how to spread monkey pox, how to chop off wee-wees, how to get more child porn into libraries, how to stuff ballot boxes with votes for Democrats, how to submit to Satanic ritual rape from their superiors.
Ah, I think you're explaining the current math class curriculum
Dark Brandon Mullet Meme pic = ignorant Leftist
In junior high, we read a short story called "Examination Day," in which kids at a certain age had to take a test and if they scored too high, they were killed. Which explained why the main character's parents encouraged him to go read comic books.
i remembered one like that but I recall it being the other way around. Was it made into an Outer Limits episode?
Edit: Twilight Zone and it's as you described it.
In 1984 I was home schooled for a year. I finished the school year in 3 months. The state found out and I had to repeat most of the 4th grade at a public school. I didn't learn anything new in the 2nd go around.
Asking the tough questions because some people never learned how to think.
Why anyone thinks public school is better than homeschool is beyond me. I had football teamamtes that were in a hybrid program to allow them to play whilst being homeschooled. They were a lil awkward but brilliant as fuck.
Communists have always preferred taking children from parents as early as possible and brainwashing them through "public" education, while keeping both parents busy working long hours so they have little energy to bond with their own offspring. Thank goodness this kind of Bolshevik Revolution never happened in the US.
Mark thinks the government should tell us what to do learn
Nice seeing her calling them government schools and tests, and not public.
My niece is a senior. She's home schooled and does dual enrollment. She'll have her AA in 3 months, at 17 years old.
Learning half of what's taught in government schools is called efficiency.
Schools teach nothing new after 7th grade.
Don't get suckered in by their word games,
Equality, equity... all the same communist agitation.
Refer also to 'diversity'.
What exactly does it mean to pass a government test at college level?
Joe Biden w/ Dog the Bounty Hunter hair....
Could be a parody account.
He only learned about less than 3% of the genders.
Mark either misgendered or doesn't understand basic grammar.
Shame. Shame. Shame.
There was a time when I thought Homeschooled children were socially awkward. Then I realized that they just had a better moral compass than other children who weren't.
Too many snarky bitches here. (I might be one...)
Thanks for posting an image and not a link, so I can't go engage with this idiot >_>
I have a cousin who went from basically nothing to being the CEO of a business he founded, which now is a multi-million dollar a year company; he has five kids, and all of them are homeschooled.
But what does he know about diverse pronouns?
100 years ago, well before the federal government decided they need control over what goes on in classrooms, kids in elementary school were learning Latin. Now, after decades of government initiatives and who knows how many billions of dollars, we have to have remedial math classes in college, to make it easier for people to get their useless anthropology degrees. Everything woke, and everything tainted by federal control goes to shit eventually
He wasn't molested by teachers or bullied by the fatherless, so he's only "half-educated".
