Coincidence? Or Indicative? Seventeen Percent Fail MCAS Science Test

The Globe today, in a story by James Vaznis, reports that twenty percent of high school sophomores failed some portion of the MCAS tests, for the taking of which the students have been highly trained. (The Lion suggests that their training has come at the expense of their education.)

The numerical breakdown shows that seventeen percent failed the science portion of the test, remarkably close to the twenty percent of Americans who believe that the sun revolves around the earth.

Yup, can’t hardly wait for Palin and McBush to get creationism into those science classes in the most advanced civilization in the world.
