Obama Exec Order extends "Proportionality in Discipline" policies to entire USA

Submitted by Robert on Thu, 2012-08-02 17:49

From a Openmarket.org article by Hans Bader
"the Maryland Board of Education has chosen to ignore reality by proposing a rule that would require school systems to discipline and suspend students in numbers correlated to their race, and require school systems that currently don’t do so to implement plans to eliminate any racially “disproportionate impact” over a three-year period. Thus, it is imposing quotas in all but name.

This crap is scheduled to be imposed across all of the USA by the Obama Dept of Education. Here it the exec order in question. Here is the interpretation of the effect of that order.

[Lifted from the Rand/Darwin thread, which Baade, that would be odious if it weren't pathetic, has hijacked with its not-so-smart smart-assery in pursuit of its goblinite agenda, asking what it thinks are clever "questions." Scientist Robert's KASS response on that thread, below, deserves to be up in lights in its own right—Linz.]

No, they are coffee-house day-dreaming bullshit and a complete waste of time.

Jaime Escalante, R.I.P.

Submitted by Robert on Wed, 2010-03-31 04:11

From Michelle Malkin:

"Jaime Escalante cared about kids. Not about teachers’ unions or partisan politics or educrat ass-covering or racial grievance-mongering. The Bolivian-born physics and math teacher demanded excellence and hard work, raised standards and expectations, and defied critics and naysayers by teaching algebra and calculus to East L.A. high school students whom the government school system had abandoned and written off. Escalante’s amazing results were made famous by education reporter Jay Matthews’ book, Escalante: The Best Teacher in America, and the biopic, Stand and Deliver..."
