Its Too Late Broward County School Board Beginning to Admit Their Mistakes?

Posted on 02/21/2018 8:46:44 PM PST by bitt

As expected – buried deep inside a Miami Herald article about the Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, and a school board questioning their progressive policies, we find the following:

[…] Absent Cruz’s school records, it is hard to say precisely when Cruz’s behavior became an acute problem for teachers and administrators. Disciplinary reports obtained by the Herald show that at Westglades Middle School, which he attended in 2013, he’d been cited numerous times for disrupting class, unruly behavior, insulting or profane language, profanity toward staff, disobedience and other rules violations.

Records show the behaviors continued at Marjory Stoneman Douglas [High School], which he attended in 2016 and 2017 before being transferred, with discipline being dispensed for fighting, profanity, and an “assault.” It appears the Jan. 19, 2017 assault resulted in a referral for a “threat assessment.” A few months later, Cruz landed at an Off Campus Learning Center, where he remained for only about five months.

Well, there it is.

This is what Jack Cashill was writing about yesterday: “Did the Progressive ‘Broward County Solution’ Cost 17 Student Lives?” –

Yes Jack, yes it did.

Time to take a close look at every county and school district in the Nation. Start with Broward County. Didn’t they go big for Pat Buchanan for President back in 2000?

There is no doubt they had policies that led to exactly that, and resulted in Cruz not being appropriately dealt with.

Cursory searches quickly reveal what was going on. Some sample statements and documents:

“In Broward County, the school and community agencies came together in what was called the Eliminating the School House to Jail House Pipeline Committee over a shared interest on behalf of young people in the community and they identified the problem areas.”

COLLABORATIVE AGREEMENT ON SCHOOL DISCIPLINE THIS AGREEMENT is made and entered into as of this 5 day of November, 2013, by and between
THE SCHOOL BOARD OF BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA [and a whole bunch of other entities]

The above was a key document in the so-called Broward County Solution that was heralded as such a great thing in national Liberal circles. You see memtions of it across the country as a policy to be copied and emulated. A good article on this:

Of course, a major “problem area” in all of this was that black and Hispanic kids were having disciplinary/law enforcement encounters at much higher rates than whites/Asians. And of course to the Liberal minds involved in setting policy, this was all because of racial discrimination and not because of behavioral differences among cultural groups.

Cruz would have been classified as Hispanic, and because of that his transgressions were more likely to be ignored / not appropriately dealt with in order to keep the numbers looking good.

The end result was Broward County Schools made a policy that led directly to the schools sweeping antisocial and illegal behavior under the rug, not getting law enforcement involved, and the result was Nickolas Cruz and 17 dead. Another fine result of chuckle-headed Liberal policy on full display.

The school that Trayvon Martin went to also claimed a "clean record" for the same reason....The school was praised as a great school because of their clean record.

Clean my a**....whitewashed is more like it.

Broward county went 2/3 for Clinton. Imagine the kind of liberal pukes that get involved in grass roots school such an environment.

“Like I said in the last day or two here - this may cost Broward County School District and other Broward county agencies into the billions. “

I hope so. Just tack a $25,000 surcharge on all of those liberal’s real estate taxes...that might cover it. Make their minds right.

Sundance ad an earlier article, which I’ve been blasting all over the internet:

In 2013, the Broward County School Board, in collusion with Eric Holder and the Obama Administration, put in place policies to prevent crimes comitted by minority students in school from being reported to the police!!!

Cruz was considered minority due to his last name. He previously brought bullets in his backpack! He comitted numerous crimes on school grounds, was caught, and never reported to police. They weren’t allowed to!

Please spread it far and wide. Copypasta this post to other school shooting threads. Post on facebook. Email to friends.

“Broward County schools intentionally created polices from 2010 through 2016 that culminated in the 2018 mass school shooting in Parkland. We know this with great specificity because five years ago we warned Broward County Florida school board members this could happen.”

Here is the Miami-Dade version of this policy, which led to Trayvon Martin being suspended to Sanford, FL.

“It’s not too late to be honest about the neglect.”

The students’ parents need to take some responsibility when it comes to neglect. They’ve neglected to train their uppity kids to have compassion and for the awkward and underdogs in society.

Well...that is the root of the issue, which is also another Democrat initiative, the destruction of the American nuclear family unit.

Couple that with the leftist doctrines about disciplining children going all the way back to Dr. Benjamin Spock, where whacking your kid on the behind will get you a visit from Department of Youth Services.

Teachers cannot control their classes, they will be left twisting in the wind. Parents are not allowed to discipline their children.

So you end up with willful children who know they can talk back and act up (or worse) with very little pushback.

This is an important thing to share. After a while, when you read material like this, you get that feeling (maybe I’m being silly here) that you are Detective Axel Foley visiting Victor Maitland’s gallery but then you (after avoiding Taggart and Rosewood)get Jenny Summers to drive you over to the customs warehouse where you find some very interesting stuff. Maitland is likely paying someone to rush his shipments through customs before it is thoroughly inspected and found to have contained bags of cocaine (already covered in coffee grounds to throw off the search dogs)or the bearer bonds that Foley’s friend was killed over.

In this case, because of political correctness and probably also to keep many Hispanic kids who are likely illegal immigrants or part of illegal immigrant families from being arrested and deported (for the wealthy liberals needing their cheap labour), the school officials created this system to protect these sorts of interests.

There were others there with Trump - not just Douglas students. I was so proud of Trump.
