How’s That Liberal Education System Working? 23% Of High School Students Fail Military Exam

You know how the Left always talks about the members of the military being idiots (except when Democrats need to win an election)? Well, then, what would this say about the liberal education system?

Nearly one-fourth of the students who try to join the military fail its entrance exam, painting a grim picture of an education system that produces graduates who can’t answer basic math, science and reading questions.

The report by The Education Trust found that 23 percent of recent high school graduates don’t get the minimum score needed on the enlistment test to join any branch of the military. The study, released exclusively to The Associated Press on Tuesday, comes on top of Pentagon data that shows 75 percent of those aged 17 to 24 don’t qualify for the military because they are physically unfit, have a criminal record or didn’t graduate high school.

“Too many of our high school students are not graduating ready to begin college or a career – and many are not eligible to serve in our armed forces,” U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told the AP. “I am deeply troubled by the national security burden created by America’s underperforming education system.”

I really don’t feel the need to add anything to that, kinda stands on its own. They sure packed quite a bit of condemnation of the liberal education system into three paragraphs, eh?
