Obama Demands Race-Based School Discipline/ ( War on White Boys)
The American Thinker ^ | August 25,2012 | Joy Pullman

Posted on 08/25/2012 2:21:22 PM PDT by wintertime

President Barack Obama recently signed an executive order hiring race-sensitive bureaucrats to hold meetings and mandate racial discipline quotas.

The order charges his new racial justice team, in part, with "promoting a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools." In plain English, that means that if different races have different incidences of disciplinary action, those of a favored race who act worse will be punished less, or those of a disfavored race who act better will be punished more, or both. It's true that a higher percentage of black students than white students receive school discipline such as suspensions or expulsion. A recent, representative study of nearly half the country's school districts found that 17.3 percent of black students were suspended in 2009-10, whereas 4.7 percent of whites and 7.3 percent of Latinos were. Only 2.1 percent of Asians were suspended that year. The black graduation rate is 64 percent. For whites, it's 82 percent, and for Asians, it's 92 percent.

I fear that it will be white boys who will suffer the most under this rigged system. In 10 to 20 years we will have a nation of men who are so "demoralized" ( as Yuri Besmenov would say) that they will be incapable of defending themselves, their families, or our nation. And...Citizens will be utterly bewildered as to why this happened. They won't trace this change in male behavior back to 2012 and the discipline polices initiated in the government indoctrination camps ( Oops! "schools)

Conservatives should use the same methods that the Marxist/Progressives have used to undermine freedom to implode their political citadel. How?

Answer: Schooling has been the Progressive/ Marxists' **most** powerful corrosive agent eating at the crumbling foundations of freedom. Conservatives must work to close down the government K-12 schools, move children into private **conservative** schools, and get as many kids out of college as possible and in to the private world of work!

There are several ways to do this:

Let any child of **any** age take the GED or similar private exam. If they pass, immediately give them an **official** high school diploma from their local high school. Having an official diploma simplifies getting scholarships and enrollment in the military. Doing this alone would quickly empty the government schools of thousands of motivated students and immediately free them from their 13 year prison sentence in the Marxist controlled government indoctrination camps. ( Cost to the taxpayer: NOTHING!)

Charles Murray has made one of the most rational suggestions. He recommends privately administered certifiable qualifying exams for specific subjects and course work. Very little work done in the U.S. needs a college education. This is true now and historically. Certifiable qualifying exams would prove to an employer that, yes indeed, a certain level of literacy, numeracy, and general knowledge about the world has been acquired. ( Cost to taxpayer: NOTHING!)

Privately administered certifiable qualifying exams should start in the first grade. If a child proves mastery of a certain subject ( For example: Addition math facts) then he should be immediately promoted to the next level in that subject. There is already a tremendous amount of course material online. What is needed is a certifiable means ( private) to prove that the child has mastered the material. Hey! If the son of a friend of mine can take a privately administered certifiable exam to earn a Certified Public Accounting license, then surely exams could be provided to prove that a child knows the capitols of the States or third grade spelling. The more quickly the child can move through the system, the less influence his Marxist teachers will have, and the child can move into the world of work more quickly. ( Cost to taxpayer: NOTHING!)

Conservatives should **demand** that all subjects taught in the government schools are videoed and placed online. All textbooks for all courses should have copies in the local library. Hey! The taxpayer paid for it. Why all the secrecy in hiding it? This information should be available to all, at any time. Having public disclosure of government school course work would help to control the bias in the content to some extent. ( Cost to taxpayer: Minimal but worth it.)

Harvard has an endowment of $34 BILLION. Colleges and universities across this nation have endowments approaching this. If government had never interfered in the education market, it is likely that every child in this nation ( possibly every child in the world) would now have access to a FREE and **privately** funded K-12 education due to generous endowments.

So!...Conservatives, set up education foundations now. Give grants to the individual teachers. She/he could set up one room schools; dame schools in the home of the teacher, schools in existing day care centers, and many community theaters and dance, gymnastics, and karate studios could be centers for private K-12 schooling. The private foundations would certify the teacher, test the students, and provide community wide art, theater, and music programs. ( Cost to taxpayer: NOTHING!)

Vouchers, tax credits, and charters can help build a private infrastructure, **but**, conservative must constantly push for the parents to take on more and more of the responsibility of paying for their own child's education. The eventual goal should be complete separation of school and state.

Finally, privatize all team sports and all supporting activities, or move them to the county departments of recreation. Government school team sports in this nation, unfortunately, provide a lot of "rah rah" support in the voting booth for the Progressive/Marxist government schools. Pull the plug on government school sports!

I guess since blacks are 12% of the population but commit 50% of the murders, we need to start convicting innocent white men of murder to even things up.

I used to think we'd eventually get our bellyfull and start pushing back against the nutty social engineers - the iconoclasts, feminists and racialists.

At this point, though, I'm not certain our society won't just implode with a whimper.

http://www.city-journal.org/2012/22_3_school-discipline.html

“The Department of Education has launched investigations of at least five school systems because of their disparate black-white discipline rates. The Department of Justice has already put the Barnwell, South Carolina, school district under a costly consent decree, complete with a pricey outside consultant, and is seeking similar control of other districts. The theory behind this school discipline push is what Obama officials and civil rights advocates call the “school-to-prison pipeline.” According to this conceit, harsh discipline practices—above all, suspensions—strip minority students of classroom time, causing them to learn less, drop out of school, and eventually land in prison.”

Racial affirmative action discipline.

They will be letting the black kids get away with murder while punishing whites for chewing gum.

Thats what real racism looks like folks.

^^^ The following was a post by “turfmann” in respond to the article on The American Thinker. It is an excellent post and well worth reading^^^

No, no, no.

We need to stop applying Hanlon’s Razor to this man, “never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”

Barack Obama is not stupid, he is not inept, he is not incompetent. He is a malicious traitor to the Republic. A criminal that needs to be dragged in front of a judge and sent to prison for the rest of his life.

You know what he is like?

Ever watch any TV shows that feature the company from Maryland, CDI? The company that uses precisely metered explosive charges to implode buildings?

They are a really sharp family - they are every bit as much artists as they are engineers.

But what makes what they do so fascinating is that it takes months and months of planning and weeks of preparation before they push the BIG RED BUTTON.

Then the building just melts away in a cloud of pulverized concrete. If you just happened by at the time of the implosion you would have no idea how much time and effort went into what you just saw.

Key to the success of CDI is knowing how to structurally weaken the building such that it will still stand while they prepare it, but will not bear up when small shapes charges are applied to the remaining weight bearing structure.

And that is exactly, in a political sense, what the progressives, lead by Barry Soetoro have been doing - weakening our structure such that when a small explosive is precisely applied, the entire building implodes. That is what he means when he says ‘fundamentally transform the United States’. He realizes that in order to rebuild that which he finds so abhorrent, he needs to destroy the structure that is currently in place.

Ask yourself - what traditional societal mores have not come under attack from progressives in the past century. Time does not permit me to itemize these but suffice it to say that progressives want to make sure that taxpayers are paying for the abortions of registered voter, illegal alien, gay couples. And if you disagree, you're a hater.
Barack Hussein Obama is the Cloward-Piven president. If you value your liberty and freedom, note well that it is about to be ripped from you by these traitors if he somehow defies the odds and gets reelected.
That is what history teaches. And history is rarely peaceful.

It is not uncommon for some kids to skip two - three grades. Contact your state education commission and find out the criteria for public school multiple grade promotions. Start there. You see kids graduating HS at 14 and 15 years old. Find the criteria from the state then give it a go. Good Luck.

“School to prison” pipeline.Goes a lot further back than that. Try “birth canal to prison” pipeline. The culture has to change not the schools. No amount of mandated discrimination vs other cultures is going to fix a disfunctional culture of children born out of wedlock in a environment where education is not appreciated.

Also in the EO as an objective: (ii) increasing the percentage of African American children who enter kindergarten ready for success by improving their access to high-qual- ity programs and services that enable early learning and development of children from birth through age 5.

In short, you breed them, the government will raise them.

A new TSA Agent Recruiting plan?
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

How many kids graduating from high school today could pass the GED? ( Just wondering) How many of their **TEACHERS** would fail it, especially the math section?

One of the problems homeschoolers face is the age restriction on taking the GED. When my children entered college at the ages of 13, 12, and 13, they were forbidden to take the GED because they were too young. State law required that they had to be at least 16. Well,...Without a GED they were barred from **all** scholarship aid.

There are many young people who are bright, motivated, and intelligent and are **languishing** in high school play pens simply to get the “official” high school diploma that will allow them to apply for scholarships and/or straight forward enrollment in the military.

By awarding an official high school diploma to a child of **any** age to who had passed the GED, or similar private exam, would empty the government schools of **thousands** of bright and motivated children. These children would be then free to attend college, start work, begin an apprenticeship, join the military **YEARS** ahead of those who choose to stay behind. The earnings over a lifetime for these children could easily be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. And...each child that leaves the government schools early saves the taxpayer THOUSANDS of dollars!

The **SCHOOLS** make the communities bad!

Think about this, please. We now have at least THREE generations of citizens who have attended utterly godless government schools! Geeze! No wonder the culture is rotten and it will only get worse unless the godless government K-12 schools are shut down and we get as many young people out of college as possible. ( Charles Murray is right about college.)

Why would any rational parent subject their tender and innocent children to this abuse is beyond my understanding.

Government schooling is literally at the point where it would be better for children to **never** attend! Even the worst case possibility is better than attending these abusive schools. Illiteracy and innumeracy can be fixed but the emotional damage done by this abuse often lasts and lifetime and can even have **eternal** spiritual consequences.

That's about what I was thinking. I grew up in an old-school district where they emphasized reading, writing, and arithmatic (I missed out on most of the touchy-feely stuff).

I guarrantee I could have passed the modern GED test out of 8th grade.

Ideas can be very powerful. Letting any child of any age take the GED, or similar private exam is a **good **idea. I hope is grow many big long and powerful legs.

And...It would save the taxpayers **BILLIONS*** and balance the budgets of many states.

Cost to the taxpayer: ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!

By the way...The GED, or equivalent private exam, should be **REQUIRED** for any child to get and official high school diploma. There are far, far, far, too many illiterates and innumerates walking around with “High School Diploma” on their resumes.

And...I bet a very large percentage of **TEACHERS** would fail the GED, especially the math section. That's my bet.

Amen. Isn't it telling that one of the few things Obango is willing to do equally for both whites and blacks is get them into government schools and universities? Got to keep filling the white kids’ heads with white guilt and other marxist indoctrination. If you love your kids, do what it takes to keep them out of the government indoctrination centers!

People need to have a look at some of the textbooks being used in universities singling whites out as uniquely evil, denying our accomplishments, attributing them to others. Anytime a person has to lie to get a passing grade, there are shenanigans going on. And don't think you as a parent can counter the brainwashing if they're in government indoctrination centers-who will have them the most hours? Who will have the authority to determine their future if they don't toe the line? Kids are especially susceptible to peer pressure. Even if they're taught the truth at home, the combination of all these factors plus the repetitive constant nature of the indoctrination will undermine your efforts..

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I just finished listening to an audio of the book, “The Tipping Point”, by Malcolm Gladwell. He states that peers have **FAR** more influence over children and teens than do parents.

I have always suspected that this was indeed the case.

Gladwell did not address homeschooling, but, my bet is that teens who have been homeschooled from a young age look to their **PARENTS** as role models and have little no problems with teen peer pressure.

When I was in my sophmore year my family moved from Jersey to California. When settled into my new academic location I was given the equivelant education I had recieved in the 5th and 6th grade from my previous home state.

During the following years I rarely showed up. In the last month I took their mandatory exit exam and graduated with a B+.

I owed this to my parents who taught the three “R’s” From our infancy. My brothers and sisters could read, write and cipher before we were in kidergarten.

Reagan was right, get rid of the DOE and let the states and communities monitor and manage their schools, Now the problem has worsened and we are faced with an executive order that supersedes even the cabinet that was designed and delegated to make rules, worthless as they have been in the past by a leader who preys on failure and feasts on a policy of more.

Simple solutions.....get rid of the dictator and get rid of the DOE and allow states and communities to reform thier own education systems
