11 in California — 1 in Texas
California has so much to be proud of, its legislators and Governor have worked hard to achieve…
1. Highest incomes, sales and gas taxes in nation
2. Least affordable rents and housing in the nation
3. Worst roads in the nation
4. Collapsing pension systems.
5. Environmental correct to the point of killing jobs but not affecting the climate.
“At one elementary school in California, 96 percent of the students are not proficient in either English or math. How is that even possible? Unfortunately, the more the federal government gets involved in education, the worse it seems to get. At one time the United States had the greatest system of public education on the entire planet, but these days we only seem to make headlines when news comes out about how poorly we are doing. This has been a hot button issue for me for a long time, but even I was surprised when I learned that the state of California is actually being sued because so few of their public school children can read…
Almost half of the worst school districts in nation are in California—government and unions have worked hard to assure functional illiterates get diplomas in this former Golden State. Thought you should know how bad education is in California, though I doubt if you are surprised.
