Are You In? (College Board promotes AP classes for minorities only)
College Board ^ | March 2014

Posted on 03/10/2014 5:44:02 AM PDT by reaganaut1

Our “All In” campaign is focused on increasing the enrollment of African American, Latino, and Native American students in AP® courses. We know that you, too, are committed to equality and helping all students achieve at a higher level. This is a tremendous opportunity for you to help by joining the College Board’s All In campaign.

By registering below, you pledge to review the master schedule at your school or in your district to ensure that 100 percent of African American, Latino, and Native American students with AP Potential™ are enrolled in courses in the 2014-15 school year.

AP Potential is a tool that predicts a student's chance of scoring 3 or higher (on a 1-5 scale) on an Advanced Placement exam. Why should students with "AP Potential" of only some races be pushed to take AP classes?

I’d say it’s more a marketing tool than an instrument of discrimination. Get more kids to take the test!

It would be an instrument of discrimination if there was an “AP-Black” exam with easier questions that had to be accepted as equal to the regular exam score.

Well...having someone “sit” in an AP class doesn’t actually make them any smarter than if they were sitting in a main stream class — Not any more than if I sat in my garage will make me a Chevy.

You sort of have to actually do the “F’n” work that the teacher gives you no matter what classroom you are sitting in, jeeezus.

Where do these idiots come from?!?

Here in New York State, the advantages given to minority students (but not Asians) is ready huge. The biggest is a public-private initiative to give FREE college tuition to any school to which a “city” kid is accepted.

School districts often receive MORE money when they can show increased numbers of students taking the SAT and AP exams. I know that our local high school has ESOL students who often barely speak any english, take the SAT’s lol So by the same logic, more AP students = more AP class funding.

This doesn't say it's classes for minorities only...

Here's what it says:

By registering below, you pledge to review the master schedule at your school or in your district to ensure that 100 percent of African American, Latino, and Native American students with AP Potential™ are enrolled in courses in the 2014-15 school year.

Seems like they want to make sure those with AP potential are signed up for AP classes... Now all they have to do is help the kids get over the "being smart is acting white" stigma that is prevalent.

schools give the scholarships to minorities as well in academics and sports. They get the vast majority of them and come to school with the lowest grades.

I understand that. The problem is that principals are being told that if a black kid with good PSAT scores is not taking an AP class, he should be encouraged to do so. But if a white kid with the same PSAT scores is not enrolled in an AP class, the principal need not do anything. This differential treatment is discriminatory and racist.

It would be interesting to learn where they got the idea to exclude white men. I don't mean through the usual osmosis from Oprah and the rest of the anti-white male popular culture. Was it official training like the Associated Press Stylebook? I'm curious because the bias is so wide spread through out all forms of media that seems like it has to come from some form of formal dictates.

“AP Potential”???? Really??? If you don’t want to take an AP class why should anyone put pressure on you? This silly notion that ‘only’ in AP classes will you learn anything useful is pushed by those who are clearly clueless.

“...they don’t want white men in them.”

I’ve noticed.

Seems to be a higher percentage of people of color in advertisements/commercials now days. Also noticed, many are the light-skinned, “clean” variety.

More power to the actors...work is work...a paycheck is a paycheck.

But, I hope the producers don’t think they’re fooling anybody, or will convince me to buy their products.

My grandaughter has been applying to,and been accepted to colleges for next fall.

I have looked at all the websites and you would think that 50% of all their students were black. They are always featured on the home page.

Last night, I put on the boob tube. First image, very attractive blonde woman wearing a low cut top. Appropriate. Turns out she is a detective. Her crime-fighting partner, looked non-white but I don’t know. Anyway, they described a murder scene and an image of a middle age black male was shown. I was surprised as I didn’t think that fit into the agenda of contemporary entertainment to show a black male killer. Alas, fear not, that image was of the murdered person, a hard working man who was slaughtered by a teenage boy with the blondest hair imaginable. How often do young blond males kill middle age black men and more so have hot women solve the case? I turned the channel and found something more suitable: a business channel even on Sunday night. Pop culture attempts to brainwash and the low-information voter is usually duped. Eventually, this theme, whether ads or shows, overtakes reality.

I went to the Boston Herald’s website today and shown immediately was a huge image of four children: three white girls and one black boy.

Subject matter is the donation of newspapers to help students. They didn’t have room for a white male? Why the need for three white girls?

Here is a smaller image:

When I look at corporate websites and the "careers" tab, most of the time the "diversity" claim is made upfront with maybe one white guy standing in the background (sometimes there is no white man pictured, just different races and a white woman with glasses up front). Typically there are between 4-7 people in the images.

I tuned out 6 years ago. TV died and I never replaced it (I dropped cable years before that).

I rarely see television these days (except for sports programming which is on in a bar or restaurant, often with the sound off) but I do see it on occasion at a friend or relative’s.

The demographics are very apparent in advertising and programming. And in all of the Superbowl ads I saw for cars, they were driven by women. Take charge, stunt driving women. And the homelife in ads shows a lot of single mothers (although the cereal maker thinks it is cute and edgy to show a black father with a white mother in one ad). Since I’ve been a “rip van winkle” with regards to television, just when DID straight white men disappear from advertising?

“white men disappear from advertising?” They exist but usually as the dunce. I mentioned recently here that I saw an ad for Capital One and a black guy starts his sentence to a female with “Boss...” and then later a feminized white male says to the woman that he saw another employee use staples for a non-business issue. The fact that “Boss...” was said in that manner is obvious. Another ad shows a black female in an office as the boss “putting out fires” including a white guy. And where do I begin with Progressive Insurance? A white guy, there, too, lit himself on fire. I guess the only way to get a message across is to get the white male. It verifies for me that liberalism is a mental disorder and confirms who are the true racists and sexists in society.

Just dropped it last week. Now my FIL can sleep in front of over-the-air TV.

Also ported the phone over to a cheap add-on to our cell phone account, leaving only Internet coming in through cable.

Poor Cox lost a bundle. So to speak.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

The marginalization of “White” people continues unabated. Apparently, segregation is good when the left does it. I have to wonder if the non-whites get their own classes with different (perhaps lowered) standards than traditional AP classes. Otherwise, why not push them to compete on a level playing field? I mean, AP classes are supposed to prepare students for the competitive grown-up world, aren’t they? Competition builds excellence.
