"Utter failure of MCAS dependency" [LINK]

Forgot to enter this one from a couple of days ago:

In criticizing the supposed rigidity of MCAS, Tim Green does his cause little good in focusing on successful adults who lack solid skills in writing and math, but who are otherwise self-confident. That leaves me with the impression that dispensing with MCAS would not result in another route to these important achievements, but would ultimately minimize their value as a goal. Schools that produce well-adjusted rather than high-achieving graduates simply would not be doing their job.
