Every minority should be as angry about this as I am, a White American who will soon be the new minority. A new position created by Executive Order has added one more executive to the government payroll, the Executive Director of White House Initiative on Education Excellence for African Americas.” Less about education, more about proclaimed discrimination-by-Executive-Order, where Obama used incarcerated Blacks as an example. David J. Johns has received the Czar-ship. Looking at this bio, he’s never held a job in the public sector.
So last summer the commander-in-chief issued an executive order to create a special White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans. The goal is to tackle a rampant crisis of perpetually low academic performance and high dropout rates among black students. African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools and challenging college-preparatory classes and they disproportionately experience school discipline and referrals to special education, according to the executive order…
Of interesting note is that the administration is actually paying states to set new academic achievement targets based on race and income, with lower goals for black, Hispanic and poor kids and higher ones for whites and Asians. Washington D.C. became the first American public school system to adapt the new race-based standards last fall. A federal education official explained in a mainstream newspaper that the administration is just “trying to be realistic about what’s achievable.” Source: Judicial Watch
The idea is to “improve their level of education achievement through rigorous and well-rounded academic support services” to prepare them for college. What in the heck are our education tax dollars being used for now?
If schools are not equal, the truth to be faced is that most well-qualified teachers do not want to teach in dangerous neighborhoods among poorly-qualified teachers. Fix that problem. We are a nation held hostage by dangerous children and unions. Police trying to rid neighborhoods of gangs are stopped cold by judges or local laws. Clean up the neighborhoods and put those tattooed freaks behind bars so that other children can use their schools to learn to read and write and do basic math. Teachers will come. Clean up the Teacher’s Unions and get rid of the blathering, slang-spewing, anti-American teachers who teach victimization. Clean-up those unions putting adult molesters in rubber rooms with life-time pay and benefits and hold their plethora of stupidest teachers in high-esteem. Good teachers want no part of that. Empower parents – bring on the vouchers.
