Oregon Governor Kate Brown Signs Bill Suspending Math, Reading Proficiency Requirements for High School Graduates

Gov. Kate Brown, the Oregon Democrat, signed a bill last month with little fanfare that drops the requirement that high school students prove proficiency in reading, writing or math before graduation, a report said. The Oregonian reported that the governor has seemed to avoid discussing Senate Bill 744. Her move to sign the bill was “not public until recently, because her office did not hold a signing ceremony or issue press release.” The paper also pointed out that the bill was first signed on July 14 but not added into the state’s database until July 29 due to a glitch in the system.

A policy that guarantees success at graduation no matter how lazy or irresponsible you were when it came to studying and hitting the books. And after that, who cares? All in the name of ‘equity’ of course.
