Students in this district (Cruces) are not allowed to make an F. So why should the schools.

So the state will give the schools grades but not the resources to help students improve? What's the point of that? And when all the schools in LC get low grades, then what? It's just a political exercise and nothing more.

"The aim of public education is not to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence.... Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim ... is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States... and that is its aim everywhere else."
