The Berkeley school board is considering creating an alternative high school or charter school proposed by one of its high school principals for 500 kids who are falling behind.

Victor Diaz, principal of Berkeley Technology Academy, said the school would serve kids from grades six through 12 who traditionally fall behind: students of color scoring well below their white counterparts.

School desegregation was a mistake. The cultures of white and black Americans are too different to be successfully integrated. Kudos to the Berkeley school board for their backhanded recognition of this fact.

Kevin Jennings announced he’ll give each new pupil a “private welcoming ceremony”.

I’m just wondering what a Berkeley “alternative” school could even be like.

WHAT! A liberal government run program that is failing it's main constituency.
When are Black Americans going to wake up and see that for over 40 years these rats have been promising everything and giving you nothing but heartache and misery. The most sickening of it all is the Black men and women in government who are sleeping in the same bed with them and “feeding on thier own. Ther is a better way, see what conservatism can offer you and your family.

Will the name of the new high school be titled “acting white high”?

The problem isn’t genetic the problem is cultural and those who use cultural baiting like Jessie Jackson.

Evidence, please.

Frankly, I don't care what the problem is. Its origin is irrelevant. I'm just tired of people pretending that there is no problem.

They had these years ago and called them “Reform Schools” They worked then they will work now.

Of course somehow I doubt Berkeley is smart enough to run them properly.

Wait a minute, this can't be true. Every ad I see on TV has a white male as the stupid one.
