I‚Äôm not surprised by either one of these issues. Minority majority states are culturally anti education. It hasn‚Äôt always been that way, in the 1960‚Äôs or 70‚Äôs being the first to finish high school or join the military was a right of passage for many people of color, especially for Hispanics. But the drug culture, pagan catholithism , illegitimacy, illegal immigration, poverty and government elections that elect a Mexican government model for southwestern states is the reason California‚Äô and Texas education system is one and two lack of individuals willing to do the right thing. Texas is an amazing state but only 26% have a college or higher education degree. And everyone says. ‚Äú I gowin to cowedge‚ÄĚ
When we were stationed in California, the neighbor kids didn't have enough books to go around so they couldn't have homework...and they were in high school. We found that few graduates of California's school systems were qualified to attend the state's university system. It's years later and it cannot be better now.
