More DOJ Race Based Justice

"The people in Washington running our federal government are more interested in skin color than they are in education." - Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal 

"President Obama’s Department of Justice has admitted it cannot prove that Louisiana school choice is violating desegregation efforts, yet it continues to seek the ability to tell a parent their child cannot escape a failing school because their child is not the ‘right’ race. The Department of Justice proposal reeks of federal government intrusion and proves the people in Washington running our federal government are more interested in skin color than they are in education."
So not only does Eric Holder find ways to stifle the betterment of state education improvements by injecting race, he wants race based results in disciplining of problem troublemakers in schools.

Breitbart:
"Holder said the problem often stems from well intentioned "zero-tolerance" policies that too often inject the criminal justice system into the resolution of problems. Zero tolerance policies, a tool that became popular in the 1990s, often spell out uniform and swift punishment for offenses such as truancy, smoking or carrying a weapon. Violators can lose classroom time or become saddled with a criminal record."

"In American schools, black students without disabilities were more than three times as likely as whites to be expelled or suspended, according to government civil rights data collection from 2011-2012. Although black students made up 15 percent of students in the data collection, they made up more than a third of students suspended once, 44 percent of those suspended more than once and more than a third of students expelled.
More than half of students involved in school-related arrests or referred to law enforcement were Hispanic or black, according to the data."
Zero tolerance is one of the only things keeping public school order, and any strike against it is a strike at a chance for a fair start in life for many who want to learn. Blocking school choice, paid for with state tax dollars is oppressive government at it worst and denies a child of any color a descent atmosphere to learn by people in ivory towers who's children attend elitist private schools.

  1. The absurdity of excusing severe behavior problems in students because of their race is the major cause of many of the problems that urban schools are experiencing. In the 45 years I taught I watched the breakdown of discipline in the schools as administrators, intimidated by local hot heads, failed to deal appropriately with disruptive students who happened to be Black. In more recent times the entire school district became obsessed with the concept of "disproportionality", and principals were forced to minimize the number of disciplinary actions taken against Black students and the severity of that action when taken. Extensive race-based record keeping was required. My own principal required that school security not report incidents involving Black students to the central office.
    Many, many years ago, a good friend who was at the time a professor at UCLA told me that any time the population of Black students exceeds 40% of a schools population that you can write off the school. He was a Liberal, very much in the mold of most college professors. However, even he understood the reality of the situation.
    In my own direct experience as a Special Education teacher whose area of specialization was Emotionally/Behaviorally Disabled (EBD-Level 4), the majority of students assigned to my classroom were Black. Of those few would fit the definition of Emotionally Disturbed, most were Conduct Disorder, sociopaths in the vernacular. The differences between those students and their friends in the general ed program were merely ones of degree, and small degrees in many cases.

  2. Eugene most excellent comment and as I worked in the black ghetto for 30 years I feel exactly the same way. Generation after generation of low intelligence passing on low intelligence. Pretty much no respect for God, their fellow man or any thing else.

  3. Thank you, Jack. Nothing like a stint in the muck of public education to turn one into a hardcore conservative.
