Three years ago, we noted the dumbification of America was accelerating as SAT scores hit record lows. It appears the need for the Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too has never been greater as Bloomberg reports that students in the high school class of 2015 turned in the lowest critical reading score on the SAT college entrance exam in more than 40 years, with all three sections declining from the previous year.
The mean score on the math portion of the SAT, 511, is the lowest since 1999. The highest possible score on each section is 800.
The reading score of 495 is the worst since 1972, according to data provided by the College Board.
The test administrator reported the lowest score for the SAT’s writing section since it began in 2005.
