Lower Quality of Education

The quality of education is going down as Critical Pedagogy and prioritizing moral and political indoctrination into Critical Consciousness has become more and more prevalent in education. The US report card shows long term declines in math and reading, ACT scores have been dropping for years, grades are being inflated, and standards are being lowered or dropped. Schools are focused on achieving equity, meaning equal outcomes by identity group, because equity is a core value in the moral and political worldview of Critical Consciousness. However, equity is achieved by lowering quality. Equity equalizes downward. The quality of education is going down, because the primary purpose of education is moral and political indoctrination into Critical Consciousness as part of the ongoing American Cultural Revolution.
