The ranking in colleges Journalism majors are not the lowest ranked students. the rank goes to Education majors, those headed towards teaching students but are those categories accurate?
In 2007, among high school seniors who took the SAT and intended to major in education, –the average scores were a dismal 480 in Critical Reading, 483 in Mathematics, and 476 in Writing.
Compare those scores with the average scores of students intending to become engineers—524, 579, and 510. Or to students intending to enter the fields of communications and journalism: 523, 501, 519.
The most competitive, elite colleges and universities, like Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Princeton, do not offer undergraduate majors in teaching or education. Why?
Teaching is considered a noble profession. Parents teach their children. Corporations teach their workers and encourage them to get more education. Why then are there no barriers to dumb people to become teachers?
First, college students are slightly more intelligent than those who do not attend college even though there are many rich, famous and capable people who do not go to or graduate from college.
But this is about the media; those who report on or comment on the news. How smart are they? Smarter than teachers, –as the SAT scores reveal, — but not as smart as engineers. If the media are so smart, how come they backed Loser Hillary? Did they even know that there were only two choices; Hillary or Donald?
What explains the media’s lack of foresight? Their inability to see that not voting for Trump was a vote more for Hillary? Do they even get this two choice stuff? Indications are they don’t. Even the uber Ayn Rand insiders, Leonard Peikoff and Yaron Brook missed the blindingly obvious fact that it was either Trump or Hillary so they choose Hillary by default. they still hate now President Trump. Stupid mushrooms.
Curious thing. The “official heir” to Ayn Rand, Leonard Peikoff could not figure out that it was either Trump or Hillary. Not approving Trump approved Hillary. How dumb are Leonard and Yaron? Dumber than a box of fungi, … mushrooms. What caused their intellectual blindness towards the savior of the human race, a combination of Howard Roark and John Galt. Well, not really. Trump is neither Roark or Galt but neither are Peikoff and Brook. .
