First, she lied about a fake “racist” attack by Fox News hosts against her.
Now, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-Stalin (D-NY) is being accused of falsifying her test scores to a public education group.
And that’s all in less than a week!
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) spoke Saturday at an event focused on eliminating private education and boycotting “racial” and “gender-biased” standardized testing.
The “Education Town Hall” organized by Jackson Heights People for Public Schools included a medley of New York’s progressive organizations. NYC Opt Out, New York State Association for Bilingual Education, Network for Public Education, Class Size Matters, Alliance for Quality Education, and Allies for Public Education participated. …
During her remarks, Ocasio-Cortez claimed her teaches doubted her academic abilities until she took a “high-stakes” test and placed in the “99th percentile.”
According to Ravitch, however, Ocasio-Cortez’s claim sparked “controversy” during the event.
In a blog post generally praising the congresswoman, Ravitch notes Ocasio-Cortez could not be telling the truth about her test experience. The “high-stakes” test, she explains, is not scored by percentile. …
There was much talk about the importance of parents taking action by opting out of state tests. NYC has one of the lowest opt-out rates in the state, in some part because parents are warned that they won’t be admitted to the middle school or high school of their choice without test scores. It was a bit jarring to hear AOC say that she was treatedin the Yorktown schools as in need of remedial education because she was Hispanic, not mainstream, but, she said, “a-high-stakes standardized Test” revealed she was in the 99th percentile. No one stopped to point out that she could not be referring to any high-stakes test used for accountability purposes because they don’t rank by percentile. They classify students as 1, 2, 3, or 4. Her teacher must have given her a no-stakes individual test that produces a percentile ranking for diagnostic purposes. Well, she can’t know everything about everything. None of us do.
That’s an interesting way of saying that AOC lied through her teeth about how smart she is and how well she performed on a test that doesn’t exist.
But apparently one thing that hasn’t changed since AOC’s school days is a lot people doubting her intelligence. And then getting the charge of “racist” thrown at them whenever they do it.
Red State added:
AOC – who is supposed to be some intellectual we simply can’t understand – had to lie about her test scores in order to prove a point. She is currently trying her best to prove my theory that the Republican Party has a sleeper cell program that was activated the moment Donald Trump took office in order to ensure the future of the Republican Party. She is doing a stellar job. …
The fact that AOC had to tell an obvious lie in order to try and work the crowd is just another sign that she is not a serious contender in the political arena.
