Remote Learning Lowered Test Scores in Every State; Minority Students Hit the Worst

Remote Learning

A paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) shows remote learning has had a negative impact on students’ test scores in every state. Not only were students across the country affected, minority students were impacted the most.

According to the publication, remote learning led to declines in test scores for English and math, when compared to scores of students who went to schools with more in-person learning. “Our research shows that test score losses are significantly larger in districts with less in-person learning,” said Emily Oster, professor of economics at Brown University.

“This suggests, yes, that virtual learning was – and is – less effective than in-person learning, at least as measured by school-based testing” added Oster. “Passing rates in math declined by 14.2 percentage points on average; we estimate this decline was 10.1 percentage points smaller for districts fully in-person,” the study found.

The research combined “district-level schooling mode data from the 2020-21 school year,” “district-level test score data from 2015 to 2021” and “demographic data from the NCES,” according to the study.

Data was collected from students in third to eighth grades in 12 states: Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Rhode Island, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Score declines showed variations by state, as well. Virginia “which had the most complete virtual learning time, along with Colorado, saw an almost 32% drop on math test scores in the 2020-21 school year when compared to the 2018-19 school year” reports Tampa Free Press.

Wyoming, however, “which had the most in-person learning, along with Florida, saw just a 2.3% drop in English, the study found.”

“Changes in English Language Arts (ELA) were smaller than math scores overall, but drops in scores were greater in districts with larger black and Hispanic populations and students eligible for free and reduced lunch prices” reports Tampa Free Press.

“Districts that have a larger share of black and Hispanic students and less in-person schooling also saw a greater decline in ELA test scores than those with more in-person schooling. “

    This can’t be true.
    How could test scores get any lower?
    Unless this series is rigged like most government test scores.

    remote learning requires autodidactic discipline which most don’t have.

‘Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant.’ a fight for truth, not dangerous woke agenda

“Men. Can’t. Get. Pregnant.”

It seems logical but logic is a rarity in our world, where even physicians are willing to push fantasy ideology instead of science.

That’s what happened during a House hearing Thursday, when Dr. Bhavik Kumar, medical director for primary and trans care at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, told lawmakers under questioning from Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA, “men can have pregnancies, especially trans men.”

Men cannot become pregnant. It’s a dangerous lie.

It is not based on science and wishing it is true doesn’t make it true. It defy’s common sense. Just decades ago making that statement would have been met with laughter or deep concern for the mental health status of the person who made it. Why? Because of science and common sense.

Human reproduction and our sex is determined by sex chromosomes, which are XX for females, and XY for males. Those chromosomes also give us distinctly different appearances as well, no matter what a human being wishes they could be. And yes, there are some people born with ambiguous genitalia, meaning they have both and the Mayo Clinic goes into great detail about this disorder.

However, don’t let common sense stop those who want to make the world believe – especially our young children – that is possible for men to have babies.

What is stunning is that many doctors, like Kumar, have no problem propagating this lie to the public. They are establishing a narrative that is not fact based,  scientific or possible. When Clyde questioned Kumar at the House hearing, which was called by Democrat to focus on how restricting abortions can harm patients, he exposed the very bizarre reality we live in.

The hearing appeared to go off the rails after Clyde’s questioning. I’m grateful it did. Why? Because we need to understand that doctors like Kumar, as well as many special interest groups, lawmakers and teachers in our children’s lives and in their classrooms are consistently preaching a woke agenda to push narratives that contradict science, parental rights and reality. Planned Parenthood is a perfect example of these lies and Kumar its general charged with transgender rights is more than happy to push them.

This false agenda devalues human life and it is attempting to take away our identity.  I believe its goal is one of social transformation unlike we’ve ever seen in history. Anyone who questions this bizarre ideological narrative is ostracized or labeled intolerant. The fear that one may be seen as intolerant keeps most people from speaking up even when the lie is blatant and absurd.

Sadly, there are too many adults spouting lies. Questioning the lie is enough to get the leftist media machine to swing into high gear – where those who question the lie are censored, banned or public chastised by the radical liberals.

What’s more bizarre is that highly educated doctors that are desperate to be seen as inclusive, or who are themselves truly ideological in their thinking, have no problem ignoring science to push a false ideological narrative.

Even they struggle to explain these bizarre beliefs.

For example, Mariel Young, Phd, said in a tweet in 2021 that “Cis women are people. Trans men are people. Non-binary people are people. Even though most pregnant people are probably cis women, it costs me nothing to acknowledge that others can be pregnant too. And women are in fact people, so…”

 

The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh is doing phenomenal work exposing the very real dangers many children face when confronted by these extremist sexual gender beliefs and dysphoria. Many of these dangers are pushed on susceptible children by adults who have joined the gender dysphoria cult and some who are bragging about the money that can be made with these evasive permanent surgeries, like Walsh exposed in his recent documentary  ‘……’

Walsh is exposing that reality behind the extremist ideology.

Walsh’s exposé on Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s (VUMC) transgender treatment on minors, was groundbreaking and shocking.  On October 21, Walsh will “be holding a rally at the Tennessee state capitol in Nashville to push for the end of “child mutilation” in the state.”

I’m grateful that Rep. Clyde, Walsh and many others are standing up to the radical left and these very dangerous ideologies. More importantly exposing them to the public. But now each one of us needs to do the same.  If we don’t expose the truth and do what’s needed to save our children, our nation and in fact, science – we will only have ourselves to blame when lies becomes the accepted normal.
