To 11:01AM ~~ Combined with the liberal educator mindset ... no need to learn cursive ... why bother teaching them to read either??

You seen a Nursing textbook written for a Masters program lately?

The reading level it's written to will scare you.

Fellow who just completed his Masters swears 1st year at RIT is dedicated to teaching what Freshmen should have learned in 10th grade.

GAME OVER

Can I SuperSize that for you?

Why aren't you asking for all NYS and U.S. HS graduates?
That might help you benchmark reality.
