I spent all day at a hotel in Little Rock grading practice AP Physics tests. This is how the real tests are graded, except those people work longer hours, and stay at it for a week. I think that means making a qualifying score is as much about luck of the draw as actual knowledge. If your test is scored early the readers are still happy, excited, and idealistic; they’ll grant you mercy. By the end of the week their tired, angry, bitter, and can barely see through the tears to mark all of the zeros.
With that in mind, the subject of this week’s random Wikipedia article is:
An ‘Upazila’ is sort of like a county, only in Bangladesh. This article says the literacy rate of Kumarkhali (269,008 people) is 24.9%. I find that profoundly sad.
