School’s Prom Theme Reveals How Far Public Education has Fallen

Teachers unions claim their demands for increasing salaries and perks are based only on their desire to better educate America’s next generation. While most agree that educators deserve higher compensation, empirical evidence shows that students do not benefit very much when second-rate teachers receive raises.

An example of this was found in what appears to be a massacre of the English language by organizers of Paul Robeson High School’s senior prom. As evidenced by a local reporter, the Chicago school promoted the theme “This is Are Story,” which is a completely nonsensical phrase.

What makes this even more upsetting is that educators in the Chicago Public Schools system bring home an average of $76,000 a year. Students, however, struggle to make it to graduation. Statistics show that around 40 percent of students who enter a CPS high school don’t leave with a diploma. Just one in four is deemed ready for college, says test results. Of those who do manage to graduate and go to college, more than 9 in 10 must retake courses they should mastered in high school.

Conservative blog Chicks on the Right pointed out that Paul Robeson High School’s struggle with grammar is not limited to its prom theme. A number of glaring mistakes also appear on the school’s official website. Still, the shocking vocabulary gaffe has since become fodder for Twitter users.
