President Barack Obama may have been too busy to visit the U.S. southern border to witness the humanitarian crisis during his recent Texas trip, but he found time to hold a town hall meeting at the Walker Jones Education Center in Washington, D.C., to add 60 major public school districts to his signature My Brother's Keeper (Keeper) initiative on July 21.
It's a program that launched in late February and was built on the achievement gap, a prime mover for education reformers. Its noble goal is to help the underserved, impoverished, and often-fatherless African American and Hispanic young men to reach better educational and social outcomes.
The Keeper program also intends to reduce the number of minority boys who are suspended or expelled from public school through the 2012 executive order signed by the President, who made it the law to discipline black male students differently. Mentorships replaced punishment. Also, "race-sensitive bureaucrats" were hired "to hold meetings and mandate racial discipline quotas," Heartland Institute Research Fellow Joy Pullman wrote.
Breitbart Texas reported that Keeper kicked off as a $200 million five-year initiative of the public/private partnership with a laundry list of funding organizations, including George Soros' Open Society Foundations, Kapor Center for Social Impact, and the California Endowment, the last of which is part of the first lady's Drink Up campaign.
The Corporation for National and Community Service will team up with the U.S. Department of Justice to jointly fund a $10 million, three year AmeriCorps program to enroll disconnected youth as part of the Keeper pledge. Likewise, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will team up with AmeriCorps, donating $3.8 million to create youth opportunities to help restore the nations forests and grasslands. The USDA is the government agency under which the National School Lunch Program is housed.

Dunderheads are dunderheads because they don’t study, not because of a ‘lack of funding’ or any other variety of horse manure.
And it’s loooong past time to stop sending Whitey the bill for Black failure.
If resident obama wants to be a missionary worker, he needs to resign and use his own money to support his missionary work.
No kidding! Now, it's just as annoying as it is wrong.
