College entrance test scores collapse across America as dumbed-down liberal education system teaches “social justice” instead of thinking skills

The group behind the ACT college entrance examination is reporting that test scores for the Class of 2018 have reached their lowest levels in decades, suggesting that the leftist-contaminated public education system is now in total free fall mode.

According to The Condition of College and Career Readiness 2018, the ACT group’s annual report, this year’s graduating class performed especially poorly in math, though scores were admittedly dismal in the other categories as well. All in all, American students appear to have been dumbed down to their lowest level yet – and this could just be the beginning.

“The percentage of ACT-tested graduates who met or surpassed the ACT College Readiness Benchmark in math – suggesting they are ready to succeed in a first-year college algebra class – fell to its lowest level since 2004,” the report explains.

Only 40 percent of 2018 graduates met this benchmark, the report adds, explaining further that this is “down from a high of 46 percent in 2012.”

As for the ACT test as a whole, average scores reportedly reached their lowest level in 20 years at 20.5 on a scale from 1 to 36. Last year the average was 20.7, while back in 2012 it was 21.1 – all of this pointing to a precipitous, year-after-year decline in aptitude.

“The negative trend in math readiness is a red flag for our country, given the growing importance of math and science skills in the increasingly tech-driven U.S. and global job market,” stated ACT CEO Marten Roorda.

“It is vital that we turn this trend around for the next generation and make sure students are learning the math skills they need for success in college and career.”
