Obama Tells Teachers Not To Reprimand Black Students
Pres. Obama is asking public school teachers to “take it easy” on black students who misbehave.
On July 26, 2012, Obama signed an Executive Order to create the African American Education Initiative. The order births a new federal bureaucracy and effectively offers black students a green light to misbehave at school.
Obama asked public school teachers to reduce the number of disciplinary actions taken against black students. Specifically, it calls on schools to “not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.”
The order, however, does not include any suggestions to improve black students’ inappropriate behavior.
Members of the new bureaucracy will work to pressure public school systems into complying with the president’s order. To do that, public schools must utilize a quota system.
That’s right, a quota system.
The U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics reports, “There is a huge crime rate disparity between blacks and other racial groups.”
So, wouldn’t it make sense that black students were discipline more frequently?
DOJ’s report shows that homicide rates in black communities are nine times higher than in white communities. Subsequently, 93 percent of black homicide victims are killed by black perpetrators.
But Obama argues that disciplining black students isn’t fair because they “lack equal access” to quality education.
Let’s look at the facts.
Washington, D.C. spends the highest amount on average per student of any U.S. state or territory. D.C. public schools also “educate” more black students than anywhere else in the country. Despite D.C.’s “overfunding” public schools, they are “widely touted as the worst performing schools in the entire industrialized world.”
Obama’s motives for this initiative are clearly flawed.
Why would schools allow ANY student to misbehave, never mind only punishing certain students based on the color of their skin.
