Re: The facts for those who want to be PC
Math teacher

    Your argument falls apart quickly when you look at the facts.All state measurements in the listing noted use averages. So
    it is an apples-apples comparison.

    ESL is also not a factor since the lowest states on the list
    are not ESL states. Are the people in Maine speaking French-
    Canadian and that is why they are so low? Is South Carolina
    now considered a border state? Why are Arizona and New Mexico
    so much higher than California? They have large ESL/Spanish
    populations.

    No, there is no ESL correlation. You are trying to dance
    around the facts.

    California education is in the lower 1/3 of the country.
