Skip to comments.Obama Admin's School Guidelines Criticized by Legal, Education Experts
Posted on 01/09/2014 2:23:03 AM PST by markomalley
The U.S. Departments of Education (DOE) and Justice (DOJ) issued a joint release Wednesday of what they have referred to as a discipline guidance package that will assist states, districts and schools in developing practices and strategies to enhance school climate, and ensure those policies and practices comply with federal law. A press release indicated the primary concern of the Obama administration that significant numbers of students miss class due to suspensions and expulsions even for minor infractions of school rules and students of color and with disabilities are disproportionately impacted.
DOE and DOJ have provided a resource package which offers guidance for creating safe and positive school climates, which are essential for boosting student academic success and closing achievement gaps.
The package consists of four components:
- The Dear Colleague guidance letter on civil rights and discipline, prepared in conjunction with DOJ, describes how schools can meet their legal obligations under federal law to administer student discipline without discriminating against students on the basis of race, color or national origin;
- The Guiding Principles document draws from emerging research and best practices to describe three key principles and related action steps that can help guide state and local efforts to improve school climate and school discipline;
- The Directory of Federal School Climate and Discipline Resources indexes the extensive federal technical assistance and other resources related to school discipline and climate available to schools and districts; and
- The Compendium of School Discipline Laws and Regulations, an online catalogue of the laws and regulations related to school discipline in each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, compares laws across states and jurisdictions.

That's the agenda, isn't it? Always.
It is Black KKK and Ethnic KKK Racism to give special rights to minorities over white folks
It’s time to hold the ethnic communities responsible for their group’s misdeeds...not cover them up
This action directly led to Trayvon Martin getting his arse capped...as the folks at Conservative Tree House uncovered Miami-Dade schools doing this with Black kids
The American negro is the most pampered, the most coddled, the most protected group of people on the planet. Virtually nothing is asked of them; they arent held to any standards at all. Preferential treatment is what they require.
In order to make up for the disproportionate impact of years of non-Federal-Law-compliant disciplinary school policies (i.e. basing discipline on actual behavior) all students with GPA’s of 3.8 and higher and clean disciplinary records should immediately be severely reprimanded and suspended from school for at least a week.
Otherwise we won’t have “equality”, right?
They have no concept of self-control, never having been introduced to that basic element of civilization by their slovenly family life. They don’t speak or read the language. They have no concept of working hard to enhance their future.
And teachers are supposed to salvage these wrecks...while teaching normal children who are trying to learn. Impossible.
We need to get the federal government out of the education business - completely. It is totally redundant to the state education departments, which are often redundant to the county boards, and it all adds up to more taxes on the citizen. Let’s have 50 (or is it 57) different experiments in educational evolution occurring so we can judge what works well and not accept the one-size-fits-all top-down decree that usually comes with a political agenda.
Under Obama, it has become the Department of Just Us..
