Burn Down the Suburbs? – By Stanley Kurtz – Cities, Suburbs, and the Destruction of.
This is what I spend a lot of time doing anymore. Trying to stop the further destruction of America by educating others.
And if you don’t know, Memphis closed it’s public housing just like Chicago. A study was done, crime followed the former residents. Where did the Cabrini crime go?
Memphis Schools failed, Memphis sued Shelby County and the county was forced to accept the schools into their district.
Here is a “timely” report that was “just” published: “Opportunities Suspended: The Disparate Impact of Disciplinary Exclusion from School”, By Daniel J. Losen and Jonathan Gillespie. August 2012
I say timely because: Executive Order — White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans – http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/07/26/executive-order-white-house-initiative-educational-excellence-african-am
“(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;”
Disparate impact: White kids have to be experience “disciplinary tools” at the same rates as black students. Affirmative Action Discipline … Example: Stan disses Shitavious by getting a question right that Shitavious couldn’t answer because he didn’t do his homework. Shitavious shanks Stan. Stan gets suspended for dissing Shitavious. Shitavious gets suspended for shanking Stan. And yes Virginia, there really is someone named Shitavious: http://nicholasstixuncensored.blogspot.com/2011/09/is-shitavious-j-cook-cold-blooded.html
Illinois has high black suspension rates, Cook County even higher. One school specifically cited in the UCLA CCRR report: Thornton Township High School – see table 4D on page 32 of the UCLA CCRR report (linked above).
