Governor Mark Dayton Press Release 1-25-2015-Pg19-2 April 1, 2015
Governor Mark Dayton today issued an executive order declaring that fourth and fifth grade will be repeated in the K-12 system next year (2020-2021). In an interesting twist of events, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson have this morning issued a joint statement against the executive order, prompting Governor Ricketts' revised order, to be the same as the earlier executive order as far as key items are concerned. Gov. Ricketts quotes in the revised order are: "All students must repeat their respected grade level the following school year in order to realize their potential. These terms refer to freedom, transformation, and liberation. By skipping third grade, students learn to read, write, and study and are better prepared for success in high school. When they pass this later grade in High School, students are given the tools and confidence they need to grow in society. When they pass this later grade in High School, they are given the tools and confidence they need to grow in society.” The Governor also feels that in the current day and age of media communication via the Internet, joke could be a helpful tool to facilitate people entering and succeeding in High School, school, and in life. Governor Ricketts also states that during this challenging time, the University of Iowa will have an assignment in writing the following message in three simple sentences: "Don't do stupid things. If you have never done a stupid thing, you are too smart. If you have done a stupid thing, it is either because you are now trying to become a stupid person, or you know that you are already a stupid person and just want to change. Either way, it is not worth it. If you have been doing stupid things, do not do stupid things again."
“This order means that all students who graduated from K-12 this year will need to come back to middle school in the Fall of 2020 to repeat fourth grade and fifth grade, thus preventing them from receiving an advanced GED diploma, receiving a certificate of completion in a vocational program, or even earning a free associate's degree. If they are attempting to reach higher education, the order excludes them from gaining scholarship money that is available to higher education students. The Governor bases this requirement upon federal law, but we strongly disagree. Federal law does not allow students to be forced to repeat their very own high school graduation, in order to achieve their full potential. The order also states that the state must reduce the length of high school to no more than 12 hours, all for a whopping price of $2,210,000,000. The amount this order could potentially cost taxpayers alone is staggering.”
Gov. Dayton, who feels that this new order is akin to the New Testament, words for today's technology age, states that by eliminating the crucial ability to learn to read and write, students will not be able to receive the instruction they need to succeed in the job market. It is no surprise that the order will result in these students becoming hopelessly jobless when compared to students that were not forced to repeat any grades to achieve higher success in life.
“By repeating fourth and fifth grade, students will not have the ability to obtain basic education, life skills, or social skills necessary to be productive and strong members of society. Regardless of what the federal government says, this order can only set up young men and women for lives of despair and unsustainability. To save their lives, middle-class parents are sure to spend a great deal of money on special education, tutoring, remedial education, remedial classes, therapy, and therapy groups. These students will eventually pay the price for their parents' overspending when they are adults and can no longer support themselves or take care of their families.”
The Governor also states that once
