Test Meant to Screen Teachers Instead Weeded Out Minorities.
NEW YORK (AP) — New York education officials are poised to scrap a test designed to measure the reading and writing skills of people trying to become teachers, in part because an outsized percentage of black and Hispanic candidates were failing it.
This was an unintentional consequence.
The State was not trying to exclude minorities.
So now the State is going to lower standards or do away with the test altogether?
This is an example of political correctness with real world consequences.
Are people really going to allow illiterate or uneducated people to "teach" their children...?
