Testing

Back in the 60s, education radicals said that the school system was merely a matter of teachers telling the kids Revealed Truths and then grading them on how correctly they regurgitated those doctrines on an exam. Oversimplified, of course, but yesterday’s satire is today’s news, and we now have a perfect example.

The NFL draft has just concluded. Alleged experts told us who should draft whom, and now they are grading the teams. But of course, no one knows anything about how well the teams drafted until actual games are played. After the season, a preliminary evaluation can be made, but it’s probably best to wait several years. So the experts are grading the teams on how correctly they regurgitated what the experts told them.
