Relax Laredo, We Know where the Real Idiots Work Out

Sorry, I can’t let it lie: the Men’s Health rating of Laredo, Corpus Christi, and El Paso as stupid, based on standardized test scores, graduation rates, and achievements registered by the scientific establishment. This is a classic example of standardized measures being used to stigmatize people
rather than to assess predicaments. As a teacher with some experience in Texas, I can tell you who the real idiots are, and they are not the people of South Texas, who as far as I’m concerned continue to produce amazing students for any educator who cares to listen.
Question is: will the legislature convening in Austin today undertake the remedial education necessary to cure its own idiotic pattern of South Texas underdevelopment? It’s not a stupid question, is it? –gm
