The Dumbest Thing
The dumbest thing about education is the SAT.
I’m convinced it’s the largest public scam in America today.
Here’s the sales pitch:
Sit down with a number 2 pencil for four hours so that we can tell you which colleges and universities schools you’re capable of attending.
You can’t use the Internet at any point.
Don’t try and team up with your peers.
Don’t ask for guidance from the proctor.
You should sit while you work. Don’t stand.
Break times/lengths are set. Please abide by them.
Are those the conditions that bring out the best in everyone?
Are those the messages we want to send our students?
Are those the types of people we want to encourage?
What a sham.
