  • Violence in Inner City Schools

    This article is a few years old, but it's still revelant (https://www.deseretnews.com/article/...-the-past.html)

    "The fact that black parents, teachers, politicians and civil rights organizations tolerate and make excuses for the despicable and destructive behavior of so many young blacks is a gross betrayal of the memory, struggle, sacrifice, sweat and blood of our ancestors. The sorry and tragic state of black education is not going to be turned around until there's a change in what's acceptable and unacceptable behavior by young people. That change has to come from within the black community."

    It is still valid today.

    Kids from dysfunctional home environments do not learn. Young adults with no meaningful education are unemployable beyond entry-level jobs, if employable at all. Without meaningful employment, the family structure remains broken. Next generation repeats.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      The home doesn't even have to be dysfunctional. Imagine a student where their home life includes no reading simply because there are no books or other literature in the home. One where their entertainment is off a tablet or television hooked to the internet. Where the student's parents show ZERO interest in anything outside vapid entertainment, only taking their kids to stuff like Disneyland or a fair.
      If the student were to have homework, the parents have no clue how to help as they can't do the work any more than their kid can. If the kid asks a question the parents have to dodge the answer simply because they themselves don't know it.

      That can be a middle class family today. That doesn't even begin to address the issues of single parents, one parent in prison, gangs, and other stuff plaguing inner cities.

          Can't remember the guy's name, but this academic was interviewed extensively for Ric Burns' (brother to Ken of Civil War and Vietnam documentaries fame) doc of NYC, and he explained in exquisite detail how one of FDR's New Deal programs served to segregate communities: how Brooklyn went from the nation's most integrated county in the 1920s to one of the most segregated by the 1970s. Very poorly thought out social policy: the inevitable result of demanding that government "do something."

            That's not the worst part - the worst part is that these are the future workers, teachers and leaders of America.

              The result is they are so disruptive of a class as to make it impossible for the ones that actually want to learn something.

                    Not at all. I've known you were a typical white liberal for quite some time.

                        It's sad when racists don't even use the correct insults. But I'm sure you are doing the very best you can.

                        Someday, your best might even amount to something.

                            I would highly recommend the books of Diane Ravitch on the state of current US public education.

                            Her books The Language Police and Reign of Error are especially useful addressing the current problems.

                            If anyone is interested, get the books and read them. If not, please keep chasing windmills with the current level of nonsense about education being displayed in various venues.
                            We are not now that strength which in old days
                            Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                            Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                            To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                              Racists always have an excuse. I suppose it is the only way you can look at a photo of your parents or grandparents and not be disgusted.
