Here’s the thing to think about. Some idiots paid a university to baby-sit them for four years, and then give them a certificate. Now, when the boss wants to be certain of your abilities....you can’t admit that you are still as dumb as a brick (the day you left high school). So you cheat to reach your goals in life.
So here’s my suggestion....mandate an exit exam from college. You actually have to pass a two-hundred question exam to exit and get your degree. I’d make a bet that fifty percent of all fourth-year folks would have to stay around a fifth year...just to practice for this exam.

In many school districts, basing a teacher's pay on student performance is like paying the auto worker who installs the last part on a finished car based on the quality of the entire car that rolls off the line. If the car is a piece of junk by the time it reaches his position on the assembly line, it's unrealistic to expect that he'll be able to produce a good finished product.
And now we know why this is a non-story for the "news" media.
