To the editor:
Recent news item: Some colleges no longer require testing for admission. Not surprising in this age of trophies for everybody. To be expected when no child is left behind by the nanny state.
Mediocrity is the goal if demanded by an identified minority that decrees that public policy is oppressive. The educationists are exposed as political opportunists and certainly not idealists dedicated to the cause of excellence in our schools.
An aside to the non-conservative: An educationist is an educator who has been corrupted by the siren song of present-day liberalism. The evidence is overwhelming. To the regrettable extent that government is involved with education at all, the practicality of the Trump pattern would serve us well.
