New York considers ending literacy tests for prospective public school teachers because too many black and Hispanic applicants were failing
The New York Post reports:
State education officials plan to scrap a literacy exam given to prospective teachers
And why are they doing this? The article continues:
Sources said education officials also were concerned about the disparity between passing rates among white and minority candidates.
In 2013-14, only 48 percent of aspiring black teachers and 56 percent of prospective Hispanic educators passed, compared to 75 percent of white candidates, the website Chalkbeat reported in February.
And there you have it.
The public school bureaucrats think that when it comes to hiring teachers, racial diversity is more important than knowing how to read.
This is what happens when you put idiots in charge.
