Comments:

Worked at GM in Linden for a few years assembling cars before realizing it would be better to work with your brain rather than your brawn especially later on in life. After getting an engineering degree, I sold my soul to the corporate world by taking a terrific job with Exxon in Baton Rouge. After getting my professional engineering license, they sent us to Alaska for the Trans Alaskan Pipeline. Returned to Louisiana before being sent for the obligatory corporate tour of duty in Houston. This was when we had gas shortages and President Carter was declaring a moral equivalent of war (MEOW). All the oil companies we developing projects to become energy independent. Moved to Colorado to be the owners engineer for an oil shale project. Spent the next ten years proving it could be done before closing all work and then off to Los Angeles. Never had a dull moment the 5 years we were there. Then it was off to Alabama for a managers job in a cement plant followed by a move to Oklahoma. Ended up building the first commercial Gas to Liquids plant in the country. Got tired and decided to move back to Colorado to be near the kids and grandkids. Everyone has now moved on after 12 years in Colorado so Carol and I decided to relocate to Northern California.

Carol and I were talking this morning about the recent Oregon law that drops any proficiency requirements for high school students. No reading, writing or math required for graduation.Students won't have to prove they learned anything at all. I know we did not have any proficiency tests to graduate but what were the requirements back then to get a diploma from WHS? Anyone remember?
I thought California was deteriorating but it looks like we are in a race to the bottom with Oregon. If we cannot expect students to read, write or do basic math, what then is the point of requiring school attendance?
When we entered WHS we had a choice of 3 paths. We could take business, vocational or college prep. Were the requirements to graduate different for each one. We can't remember.
