The only thing that matters to schools is that their levies pass and money rolls in. Same with teachers... the unions at least, and they have the power... individual teachers care... mostly
Common core, social media, glorification of ghetto-trash culture, and most of all a lack of faith in God Almighty.
Kids are just grist for the nanny state's diploma mills.
Common core. Another Bush piece of crap foisted on the US. That family is as disgusting as the Clintons and Kennedys. Obamas are looking to join that club.
“The educational system is so horrendous in Detroit that a former public high school graduate has sued his previously attended district for failing to educate him to a point he couldnt pass any of the courses at his community college. He called attending high school a big waste of time. He recalled in his 11th and 12th grade English classes that students were given material to learn that was marked for third or fourth graders. Long-term substitute teachers also failed to teach, showing movies instead. The lawsuit included an eighth grader who, after his teacher quit, had taught math to his classmates for a month. Stories like this describe most large urban school districts attended by black and brown students across America.”
Most of our students today are “black and brown” - and yellow - since whites have had a negative birthrate for years now, but this occurs in “white” schools as well - the teaching caste itself is fairly uneducated, and to improve paper grades teachers have resorted to all kinds of BS to inflate them.
Much of the taxpayer population loss in NY/NJ and CA is caused by whites fleeing the huge burden of public schools with few white children in them; the states themselves have comparatively few white children in them.
Consider it a small victory that the headline even saw the light of day; too many parents are willing to believe the nonsense grades rubber-stamped onto their children’s report cards.
Don’t get me started on parents.
God help our kids.
2. I would like to see a breakdown to where that $648 billion is allocated. Specifically how much is wasted (yeah, wasted) on administration.
To think how much better kids learned before the gov got so involved, before discipline disappeared, and before fathers disappeared...

The State of Maryland just released the report from some Blue Ribbon (/s) commission that said...wait for it...A few billion more dollars will solve the problem.
So I did some research. Baltimore is majority black so I looked at black literacy.
In 1870, black literacy in America was about 20% with almost $0.00 education spending.
In a report released last week, the proficient reading rate among 8th grade students in Baltimore was 15%. Cost per student is about $16,000 a year.
Here in the DC area, the declines in scores is mostly attributable to the massive influx of uneducated, sometimes illiterate, illegals and their kids. They, in turn, bring down everyone else.
California used to have one of the best educational systems in the country, but is now near the bottom. The same thing is happening here.
And more money won’t fix it.
Before public sector unions...
White kids proportion in the Public school population is also declining as they move to private, religious and home schooling alternatives. Murray’s Bell Curve wasn’t wrong either. A poor educational system with a declining IQ gifted raw material will do poorly.
Our poor educational system is the biggest problem we have as it feeds all the other social problems.
If you teach the way Sheriff Clarke suggests, you will have unequal outcomes.
The system denies that unequal outcomes are even possible, because racism.
The delusion that equal outcomes are even possible, never mind normative, is widely believed all across the land, especially by the voters who elect school boards, legislatures, and Congress. In fact, the voters demand equal outcomes and choose “reform of a broken system” when they don’t get it.
So, the system has reacted in the only way it can. The only way for outcomes of K-12 to be equal is for everyone to be equally stupid. Get used to it.
There is very little the Federal Government is going to do about education.
Education is a state and local issue. Shoveling money at it from DC is not going work.
But there's nothing magic about white children. I live in the tristate area of ME-NH-VT, where all there are is white children, and the schools are just as dedicated to equality through stupidity as they are anywhere else.
Imagine if all-white public schools stood out? They would be discovered and destroyed before you could say Jack Robinson.
