Nanny Bloomberg

Instead of banning super-sized soft drinks, New York’s mayor nanny Michael Bloomberg should give his attention to the dismal state of the city’s high schools.

CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reports, March 7, 2013, that a shocking nearly 80% of New York City high school graduates managed to graduate without having learned the basic skills of reading, writing, and Math.

As many as 11,000 “kids” who received a high school diploma will have to relearn basic skills before they can enter the City University’s community college system. That percentage is the highest in years.

Reason no. ∞ to home school!

No wonder Americans are getting increasingly stupid….
