Heads should roll for this.
“Explain why using ‘free market’ policies causes income inequality.”
This is outraegous. For a state exam to take what is a highly controversial nad politically divisive opinion and state it as a fact, is not acceptable.
Hey if this is the standard of our school system, then why not let me set some questions, such as:
“Explain how Helen Clark keeps avoiding being charged for breaking the law”
“Describe why ‘socialist’ policies are a failure throughout the world”
“Discuss why the peace movement has been wrong on almost every issue for the last 50 years”
I would not object if the question was “Discuss the effects of free market policies on income inequality”, but to have a state exam actually state an opinion as fact is almost Orwellian.
