KANSAS CITY TEACHABLE MOMENT: RACIAL DIVISIONS DOMINATE PUBLIC SCHOOLS!!!



Here's an important examination of a local conundrum with no quick fix given a longstanding dilemma that has confronted Kansas City for more than a generation whilst inspiring a great many locals to opt out of public education and/or City limits altogether.

Take a look:

KCUR: In Kansas City, Education Choices Still Divide Schools By Race

Moneyline . . .

"Bottom line, a lot of white families that will send their kids to well-regarded K-8 charters don’t want to enroll them in majority black high schools, which most KCPS neighborhood schools are.

That’s a problem when the research shows socioeconomically diverse schools close the achievement gap fastest"

Lots of great info in this piece that still doesn't put us anywhere closer to a solution.

You decide . . .

Why would anyone who values education send their kid to scroll in the KCSD? They cater to the black student and the result is illiteracy

The people of old Mississippi
Should all hang their heads in shame
I can't understand how their minds work
What's the matter don't they watch Les Crane?
But if you ask me to bus my children
I hope the cops take down your name
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal

THIS is how black kids act in school.

Not always, but enough of the time, that ANY parent with ANY love for their children will avoid the violence and lower standards that are part and parcel of black grade and high schools.

Imagine if you are a white teacher or, even worse, a white kid.

Perhaps if Blacks didn't chase White children home from school, throw gasoline on them, say "this is what you get,White boy", then set them on fire, Whites would possibly be more willing to explore the "benefits of diversity". Said "research" regarding the achievement gap is decades-old Marxist horseshit.An average IQ of 60 is why Blacks don't achieve.

This is why we need more school choice and not less. Why should we hold students back just because of their race or where they live.

Let schools compete for students with their performance and reputation.

Then the schools have a real incentive for teaching and making sure that test scores are met.

This video explains why white parents are afraid and rightfully so, to send their children to schools with a large percentage of blacks.

@8:24 - Youtube is spoiling your mind. MILLIONS of students go to school every day without incident.

Stop scaring yourself. It's sunny outside.

The only way a "socioeconomically diverse school" closes the achievement gap is by not teaching the smart kids a damn thing.

Whites desperate to prove they're not racist send their young children to the best of KC Public Schools. That works fine for a few years but by middle school it's too dangerous. Everybody out here in the white suburbs knows a refugee from Brookside who moved here for a "bigger yard".

Black lives matter is only a suggestion not a directive nor an entitlement.

Sounds like the only way to give races the attention they deserve is to have separate schools for each one - especially since none are expected to assimilate into civil society and conform. Hmmmmmmm......

That video does not lie. You should look at it.

Go to any large place of work and check out the lunch room. You will see that adults self segregate to eat and chat. Why should schools be any different?

Just turn all public education over to the Kansas Supreme Court. The Justices seem to consider themselves experts in pedagogy (as well as in everything else), so they will fix all the problems PDQ.

Oh yeah, we always have to do "more, much more!" Why is it that we never have to do "more, much more" for White, Asian or even Hispanic communities? Why is it that no matter where in the world blacks go, that place has to do "more, much more" for them and no one else? Why is it that as "teens" my friends and I never suggested that, since we were bored, we should cause a disturbance and then assault the police officers that respond? And why no arrests - from what I saw, at least a dozen of them should've been shot on site and another couple dozen should've been locked up. When are the liberals going to understand that the more "gibsmedat" you hand out the worse they become. I guarantee that if you allowed the police to shoot to kill the ones doing the actual destruction, it would put a stop this very quickly. I'm sure the majority of them would love to do just that, but are ordered to stand down from above. I've known many police officers and from what gather I really don't think we'd be "on our own" if the shit hits the fan. These White officers take a lot of racial abuse every day from blacks (even black co "workers") causing them to have an ax to grind, and a lot of them would love to go to the hood and put that ax right between their eyes.

THEY LEARNED FROM THE FUCKING DESEGREGSTIONAL LAWSUIT AGAINST KANSAS CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS.. HOW DID THOSE MAGNET SCHOOLS WORK OUT????? WASTED BILLIONS..

My dad went to Paseo High School but wasn't about to send me so he wisely got out. That house he bought in Overland Park for $27,000 is worth $200,000 today. The house he lived in on 43rd & Forest isn't worth $27,000 today. So tell me, should he have stayed, watched his neighborhood go to shit, been a repeat victim of crime, lost out on a great property investment, all so his kids could be a social experiment in KCSD? Any white person that has the means to move but subjects their kid to all black schools is committing child abuse. You can't guilt me in to living amongst savages just so cencus numbers in a school look inclusive.

You can't blame the lack of black achievement on economic factors alone. Lots of poor kids made it through school and went on to lead productive lives. It's the black CULTURE that's the problem. I see it in our local high school with the black and black wanna-be's (aka white kids who act black). They aren't at school to learn anything. It's a social thing, plus they get free breakfasts and lunches. Behavior has become a serious problem in schools where black culture is the norm.
