Science - what has it done for us lately?

In the future ... high schools will eliminate science labs and the science department in order to free up resources to help struggling students.

Paul Gibson, an alternate parent representative on the School Governance Council, said that information presented at council meetings suggests that the science labs were largely classes for white students. He said the decision to consider cutting the labs in order to redirect resources to underperforming students was virtually unanimous.

This should bring everyone up short: parents and other people charged with making their school the best it could be, unanimously said that eliminating science education was the most optimal use of taxpayer funds.

The Governance Council then voted (unanimously) that the strong shall wait for weary, the hale shall halt for the weak, and to use the remaining stock of seed corn to make tasty before, during, and after school meals for the struggling students at Berkeley High.

When asked about this the students peasants-in-training said "Huh?"

It's a Red Queen's Race to the bottom.
