Today that's geiko dot com in a major win for opponents of standardized testing university of california public university system will no longer use. Act sat scores as part of its emissions process. Think that's a good thing. I spent so much money on test. Prep well. i'm sure that's not really the point. I don't look i. Honestly i don't i don't know what they are standardized tests and i know they've been used in california for many many years. They've used across the country for many years. I was in high school fifty years ago we had act and sat tests to take. But i really don't. Because because i don't i don't have any kids at that age at this point and even my son was in high school I don't know. I don't have a hard feeling about this. Why why would people be opposed to it. Why would people be opposed to standardized testing. Well some people. I mean the colleges want it to try to weed out kids that they don't wanna take dumb ones. You know i mean it's it's really become no it's really become a money making operation for the act and the sat and for all these college prep companies that. Prepare your kids for these exempt. It's one it's it's one test one day. Your kid could have a bad day. That day right could they. Can they take it over again. They can take it still a better. Barometer is their schoolwork over four years. You'd think so you know that's highly inconsistent right the grading an assignment. The nature of curriculum is know how hard certain school districts are in high schools are and they take that into consideration when they're were their considering. Your student for admission and last year was a crazy year because half the kids couldn't even take the sat and the act exams. My daughter was trying to take the. Act exams hers. Were were cancelled or postponed three or four times. That you gotta be in the room. You can't do that online right. And she finally was able to take them and then most of the schools g applied to didn't even use them care. So i guess it's just one of those things that's fading into history and i think because of that. A lot of schools are questioning whether they even need them. Yeah well university of california system. We're talking about here. Last year. made it Voluntary you can send intestine right this result or not. There are a lot of schools that my daughter apply to voluntary. There was only one that she had to. It was mandatory. This is kind of cool. I think i'm not sure. But i think so. Historically black university has cancelled all student debt using covid nineteen relief money seven hundred and thirty thousand dollars worth of debt university president. Tony allen said. The step was taken in order to continue furthering. The school's mission to help students change the economic trajectory of their lives and that means not starting them out on their careers burdened with debt. I think this is a good thing because there are a lot of Public universities that have cut merit aid and other aid for students Because they're losing money with enrollment and things like that but they're getting millions and millions of dollars in aid from the federal government through this american rescue plan program right so yeah seems like a good thing. Do you want to wrap it up with here this. Cnn story symbol is unbelievable.
