ObamaSchools to cut down on discipline of unruly black students


quote:

President Barack Obama is backing a controversial campaign by progressives to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior.

His July 26 executive order established a government panel to promote “a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.” “African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes, and they disproportionately experience school discipline,” said the order, titled “White House Initiative On Educational Excellence.”

Honest question: what school discipline is still left?

No one in the media can recognize real, true life racism when they see it. Declaring one group incapable of following the rules of civility and decorum that allow society to exist is far from equality. Its dehumanization.

No he's not.

No where in this EO does he even come close to this.

You guys continue linking articles from right wing yahoos filled with inaccuracies and downright lies. Then you go on to criticize the MSM for being dishonest.

I say we take it a step further. Let's say that no black kids are allowed to be disciplined for anything except something like physical assault on a student or teacher. Then, let's compare graduation rates 10 years later.

quote:

(1) The Initiative will help to restore the United States to its role as the global leader in education; strengthen the Nation by improving educational outcomes for African Americans of all ages; and help ensure that African Americans receive a complete and competitive education that prepares them for college, a satisfying career, and productive citizenship.


Bunch of feel good rhetoric that will never come to fruition.

quote:

(1) There is established the Federal Interagency Working Group on Educational Excellence for African Americans (Working Group), which shall be convened and chaired by the Initiative's Executive Director and that shall support the efforts of the Initiative described in subsection (b) of this section.


Oh great, another idiotic federal agency.

Obama signs EO: Schools to cut down on discipline of unruly black students


Well.....making black kids responsible for their actions is obviously racist. Don't you know that they were slave 150 years ago.....I mean come on you mean ole white people. It's obvious that the reason for the lack of education and jobs for the black youth in this country is because the school system is demanding them to be good! How Racist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

re: ObamaSchools to cut down on discipline of unruly black students


This:
quote:

(iii) decreasing the disproportionate number of referrals of African American children from general education to special education by addressing the root causes of the referrals and eradicating discriminatory referrals;


is not this:
quote:


President Barack Obama is backing a controversial campaign by progressives to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior.


The closest to that is this:

quote:

(vi) reducing the dropout rate of African American students and helping African American students graduate from high school prepared for college and a career, in part by promoting a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools, and by supporting successful and innovative dropout prevention and recovery strategies that better engage African American youths in their learning, help them catch up academically, and provide those who have left the educational system with pathways to reentry;


And that does not in any way even suggest that Obama wants "to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior".
