I don't know what's been going on in DISD for the last several years when it comes to educating black students, but for some reason the kids are increasingly performing worse than Hispanic and white students.
DISD has begun to realize that black students are falling way behind and has implemented measures to address the problem, including a math initiative geared towards black students. DISD and outside groups also are providing mentoring-type programs for young black males.

I wonder what black math is like.
The babies daddies didn’t get no stinkin’ education. Why would they want to?
I’’ve no idea how, but I’m guessing this is going to end up being the fault of white people.
Did you hear Obama’s comments at that graduation ceremony, last spring? He said that the government has been throwing money at schools for years and still White students continue to out perform Blacks and Latinos in tests. Obama said that something must be done about that.
When Obama says that something must be done, he means a leveling of the playing field. He wants an equal outcome, not an equal opportunity. He wants to either move the goal post or change the rules for minority students.
One plan is to make 11th and 12th grades optional, putting low performing students directly into union apprenticeships that would lead to directly to union jobs that usually require some special training and union membership. He is especially interested in putting students into unions of first responders (probably TSA, too, since they will be unionized), as well as trade unions.
Black math is probably math that recognizes a type of dyslexia that involves math, dyscalculia. It means that numbers have no meaning for the student and math is impossible to lean. Students with this particular disability must touch every object in order to count them. The only way around it is to memorize math facts and to use a calculator. You can attempt to ameliorate the condition through early intervention, teaching numbers by dots, instead of numerals, but that only goes so far.
Public schools would be better served by cutting loose students who are not interested in learning.
Amen. Public school students are not allowed to fail. They are passed up to the next grade. That’s why there are college students who can’t write a complete sentence.

No Child Left Behind" is now "All Children Left Behind."
Isn’t that Eddie Bernice Johnson’s district? You know, the one who gave scholarships to her relatives’ kids?
“The Bell Curve” there is no beating it.
it looks like your post broke FR . i am in awe of you
DISD is a joke.
Lot of great material here, most of which I can't use. Hee hee.
Lets see here - you take what would be effective action - declare war on a culture that does not value education, and even ostracises those of their own race and background for trying to “get ahead”...and it is deemed racist.
So - you throw $millions at it.... and you fail... why? because you have failed to address the root problem. Shamika Latona Jamia Female’ Jackson, who had her first child at 13 after dropping out of Middle School/Jr. High, and who has been drawing government checks ever since...who doesn’t know her daddy, and who’s own “mother” was pregnant in her teens as well (and living off government programs).
Shamika doesn’t know for sure who her “babby-daddy” is... but it doesn’t really matter - one is a gang-banger who she doesn’t really like much any more. Another...well, she doesn’t really remember his name. But it don’t matter - she get that check every month...
Now - follow that line for a couple of generations and try to change what has become a culture of voluntary slavery.... won’t get you too far.
You need to change your opinion.
First step..... take a trip to Africa. You will be impressed with the efforts in creating scams, calculating profit, accuracy, ingenuity...its incredible. You soon come to recognize that they have the capacity and if ever they could apply those talents honestly? They would be great nation builders. But? Genetically? The stealing / conniving gene is present. And so is tribalism. So ganging comes naturally.
Here in America? Total black societal failure. No concept of the family and social contract to get their kids into a better future by two parents. Buck has to run wild.
After witnessing the efforts, I find the people are not stupid. Diligent too.
IF obama wants to level the playing field I think he will have to get rid of Christianity, teach the white men to run wild, drop all familial responsibility, and get rid of the western civilization dream of making tomorrow a better place.
My opinion? I think he is very active in promoting islam and destroying Christianity and its values, so he is at the first step.
