Skip to comments.Federal Government to Analyze ‘Disparate Impact’ of School Discipline on Minorities
Posted on 01/18/2011 7:22:14 PM PST by Chicago Lampoon
Officials at the U.S. Justice Department and Education Department say closer scrutiny of school discipline cases will be a high priority for 2011. The department announced it would use a disparate-impact analysis to help determine whether minority students are disproportionately punished at school.
Regrettably, students of color are receiving different and harsher disciplinary punishments than whites for the same or similar infractions, and they are disproportionately impacted by zero-tolerance policiesa fact that only serves to exacerbate already deeply entrenched disparities in many communities, said Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for civil rights.

get rid of the Dept. of Education
oh good grief.
I imagine the loons will investigate Arizona schools first. The commies really have it in for Arizona right now.
Wait till they start investigating the judicial system and find out there are a higher percentage (relative to the population) of blacks in prison than whites.

I thought you were going to “investigate”, you effin POS racist ambulance chasing dirtbag. Sounds like you already know the score.
Who or what is the most dysfunctional and who acts out most frequently....
Please Congress, PLEASE defund the dept of Education.
Never mind that they commit 50% of the murders.
Pure politics and a huge waste of money, both at the federal level and among schools that will have to fight back against this nonsense.
Does that crime enabler Eric Holder really think that black schoolchildren will turn out better if they are NOT disciplined?
News for these jerks. If you don’t discipline the kids in school, they will turn out the worse for it.
Chinese and Indians?

In today's atmosphere, I call this BS.
I was told by my child’s teacher (privately) a couple of months ago that they are no longer allowed to fail Hispanic students. I kid you not.
Not necessarily those executed.
On the other hand, the strong discipline that all of our schools demonstrate has led to very strong graduation rates, no bullying, high achievement ..... oh.. wait.
This is Eric Holder’s doing, and there’s more to come.
There was an almosy unnoticed story in 2009 about Holder’s plans to investigate a number of institutions to determine if minorities - meaning just blacks, of course - are discriminated against and “under-served.”
Gee, my guess is that Holder’s people will find that anti-black discrimination is rampant throughout every institution in the country and that the only way to solve it is to put these downtrodden ‘minorities’ in charge of the institutions. Holder had also said that he intends to sue any organization that was doing so.
And so there’s your reparations.
NOBODY IS DISCIPLINED IN SCHOOL!
They’ve outlawed it!
What’d they do?
Withhold their M&M”s???
The only real solution is to encourage even more minorities to drop out of school.
Works for me.
