Thread: How bad has public education become?

    How bad has public education become?

    Darrel played high school football and was a great running back but a really poor student.

    At graduation Darrel didn't have enough credits but was such a great football star that the students held a rally and demanded the principal give him a diploma anyway.

    They were so insistent that the principal agreed that if Darrel could answer one question correctly he would give him a diploma.

    The one question test was held in the auditorium and all the students packed the place. It was standing room only.

    The principal on the stage asked Darrel to come up.

    Diploma in hand, the principal said: "Darrel, if you can answer this one question correctly I'll give you the diploma."
    "Darrel, how much is three times seven?"

    Darrel looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes pondering the question.

    The other students began chanting, "Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!"

    Then Darrel held up his hand and the auditorium became silent.

    He said, "I think I know the answer. Three times seven is twenty-one."

    A hush fell over the auditorium and then all the students began to chant:

    "Give him another chance!
    “Give him another chance!"
