[Ed. – Low-hanging fruit. Also who’s willing to believe her teachers told her she needed remediation because she spoke two languages, as if that’s something they never encountered previously?]

While reading an article from the New York Post last night about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got her goddaughter into a charter school (which she publicly criticizes), I got a suggested article with a headline I couldn’t help but laugh at. …

To quote from the Post’s article (which is from 2019): Congresswoman AOC recalled how her public-school teachers thought she needed “remedial education” because she had grown up speaking Spanish at home.  The freshman lawmaker, speaking Saturday at a packed town hall organized by the Jackson Heights People for Public Schools, said, “As a child I spoke Spanish first … and I went to a school where no one looked like me. I went to a school where teachers thought I needed remedial education because I spoke two languages instead of one.”
