Some people get it but unfortunately people in leadership positions of our government especially at the top! would rather blame somebody else and throw money at it.
This is nothing more than race-based affirmative action for school discipline!
It’s become glaringly clear that most of the inner city crime inner is BoB (black on black) so don’t get too worried about that. Just be ready to jump on any whitie hate-crime, well close to white will do (as in the George Zimmerman case) so you can point the finger.
Does Executive Order 13621 (click to see full document in boring, circular govt-speak) mean Obama is finally doing something for the black community? Is this the best he can do to improve America’s role as an educational leader?
“. . . . . to restore the country to its role as the global leader in education, to strengthen the Nation by improving educational outcomes for African Americans of all ages, and to help insure that all African Americans receive an education that properly prepares them for college, productive careers, and satisfying lives, it is hereby ordered as follows:
bla, bla, bla . . . . . “and they (African Americans) disproportionately experience school discipline and referrals to special education . . . . ” bla, bla, bla.
Okay, we get a new department within the Dept. of Education and a ton of new hires- to enhance educational outcomes for blacks because apparently they get thrown out of school more than anybody else. What’s wrong with equally applied punishment based on behavior? Are white and Asian kids gonna get thrown out of school more often now? No, but you can bet classroom teachers can now count on having less control in the classroom and the cost of education just went up.
Gee Prez, the real cause of poor performance in our nations schools and particularly in the African American community might just have to do with the complete and total destruction of the black family (in fact all lower income families), massive unemployment in the black community (nearly 50% for teens), 70% single parent households and exploding out-of-wedlock births.
No, it’s so much easier to play the victim and trump it with the race card. Divide, divide, divide. Go-Obama-go!
