The continuing farce of pretending the schools can make people equal, giving tests to measure that goal (see Goodhart's law ), judging teachers by the results they obtain, and telling them not to “teach for the test” (which is either the old Mission: Impossible trick or a stunning inability to understand human nature) brings us a Great Moment in Emotional Manipulation.

Thanx to Charles P. Pierce.

University gives students access to an anonymous-comments app while requiring them to devote nearly three hours every Friday morning to an experimental honors course entitled “Interdisciplinary Exploration of Global Issues: The Environment: Space/Place, Purity/Danger, Hope/Activism.” Students say offensive things about the nearest target, the teachers. University is surprised.
