The Dumbing Down of The West
Below is an amusing story of how a British kid received GCSE credit for riding a bus. The GCSE are standardized tests that are often requirements for university acceptance. They are somewhat similar to the United States SAT and ACT tests.
In order to ensure equal outcomes (usually due to demands to meet diversity quotas) these standardized tests have been dumbed down across the West. Admittance to university was usually only achievable by the brightest of our young. Now universities pretty much accept anyone, especially if it meets some diversity goal.
