In a recent national test, eighth-graders scored 265 out of 500 on vocabulary. Fourth graders were even worse.
These kids did not know the word permeate or puzzled.
Created, spread, underestimated—nope.
Solution—more reading! More writing! Let’s get with it.
This country is so dumb now it makes my teeth grow hair.
An adult I know lamented that her adult kid did not know the word bilious. She told her mother—“No one says that.”
I am feeling bilious right now.
