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.
Feral Black males have destroyed the public school system in many cities.
Ever checked out this sight?
Seems to me that the second half of the sentence renders the truthfulness of the first half, suspect.
Yet the disproportionately higher abortion rate of black babies is no problem?
Maybe a shot of saltpeter and some valium in their FREE Gubmint breakfasts, lunches, and dinners will calm down the little thugs and thugettes.
I think you meant to say disproportionate number of black babies born out of wedlock.
Not sure what you mean...sadly they are both true. I just get so tired of hearing about injustices against people of color while they ignore the evil of what is practically genocide against blacks. Over 30% of all abortions are on black babies, where is the outrage from the black community?
“Whatd they do?
Withhold their M&Ms???”
I believe FLOTUS is working on that
Over half of minority school children are from single parent homes. They receive little or no discipline at home. When they get to school they must comply with a structure of discipline of study and work. They rebel.
Consequently they are disciplined more than non minority students. THIS IS A GOOD THING
By discipline, I mean surpervised work with goal oriented
results, supported by consequences for success or failure, consistently applied.
The Zimbabwe-ing of our school systems now begins.Obama at work. EFF HIM RIGHT DOWN TO HIS DASTARDLY TOE NAILS!!!
I think you mean feral black parents - but really - what is the difference? The parents are children too.
Here we go again. This is how the Left breaks down the schools into violent chaos. I despise the stupidity of zero tolerance but that policy came in response to the last round of leftist race baiting like this.
The schools had to have a no brain policy of discipline rules that could not be race baited in the courts because violence in the schools was totally out of control. So they came up with zero tolerance. Equal punishment for the white kid who brings a knife to cut his apple at lunch and for the black kid with a criminal record and a switch blade at school. Or equal punishment for a white kid who draws a gun in school to a black kid who brings a gun to school.
The hope was to get a better quota balance in punished children by race and to give no argument to race baiters that Black children are treated harsher than white children.
Yeah, how exacerbated are the deeply entrenched disparities of the state prison system?? We need more damn "Joe Clarks" (ala the film LEAN ON ME)!!
Students of color? What an insulting and derogatory thing to say. All students, including Hispanics, Whites, Blacks, and Asians, have color. Does Perez really believe that White students don't have color?
