    yeah, it isn't because people who have been successfully educated in STEM -- successfully enough, at any rate, to successfully work in STEM careers -- have mastered the knowledge. no. it's because they "game the tests".

    what fucking bullshit.

    what fucking anti-intellectual, anti-elitism, self-stroking bullshit.

    what a fucking insult to anyone who actually can do this stuff.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

      All you have to do is look at the actual test, and see with your own eyes that a moderately educated person can pass it without "gaming" anything.

      Indeed, this is why we all expect someone controlling our kids' curriculum to be able to pass these 10th grade tests of mathematics and English.  Not because we expect school administrators to be good at "gaming" things, but because we expect someone with at least a high school education to be able to pass these tests.

      Linking to a news article is journalism in the same sense that putting a Big Mac on a paper plate is cooking.
