Equality through Mediocrity

I am a product of the LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) in the 70’s-80’s. A survivor of the largest and possibly the most wasteful public school system in the country. I succeeded despite it.

I owe much of my success to being identified as a “Gifted” student in public school and channeled into “Enrichment” programs which allowed me to get into a Computer Science Magnet School in Jr. High. But I chose to attend my local high-school with it’s middling academic record because I grew tired of 1hr bus rides to and from school.

If I am reading this article correctly, the new framework is riddled with woke-isms rather than performance improvements and will deliver equality through equality of mediocrity.
