You know, you have to be really careful with satire. Some genius at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce or the Whozit Foundation or the U.S. Department of Education might think it is serious and jump all over the idea.
Here is a truly dangerous satire by Diana Senechal. She envisions a National Misfit Data Base for kindergarten, to determine college and career readiness for tots.
As I said, be careful. This could easily get into the mainstream dialogue.
Oh, wait, I forgot. ACT is already developing a kindergarten assessment for college and career readiness. And the U.S. Department of Education is already funding a massive database for every child in every state in the nation. We may already have a “national misfit database.”
I guess what this proves is that we are living in a time that is hard to satirize. Just when you think you have written a parody, it turns out to be reality.
