You do have to admit that Blacks and Hispanics get the short end of the stick when it comes to public education. Yes there are exceptions but in the broad scheme of things minority school children attend, for the most part, failing schools. This is due to many causes. The majority of students in these schools are from single parent families; hence the teachers spend a great deal of time on discipline, secondly one parent families have many chores thereby neglecting their responsibility in helping the child with homework or in fact seeing that it was done in the first place. Another major cause of concern is the education of the parent, in many cases they were dropouts, so engaging their children in meaningful conversations become a dead issue.
The liberal elites designed today’s education experience, for the most part, particularly in suburbia it works fine. However, when one peers into the inner city experience he/she sees a different picture. Mayhem is everywhere. Teachers in many instances are on the defensive, fearful of what an irate student may do. This has been caused by state board’s of education and the progressive politician. Discipline is no longer the stick that it once was. For instance a teacher, in many states and localities, can’t lay a hand on a student, even to break up a fight. The cops are responsible for this. Disciplining destructive students is not any easy task. Classes are disrupted effectively limiting their classroom learning. Teachers now become baby sitters. This very rarely happens in suburbia. Who to blame for this? We can point many fingers, but it is obvious the liberal progressive cabal put the rules in place.
As we enter prime time in November, the decision on who to vote for becomes more acute. The Black parents need to understand who they are voting for and why. This is not too difficult of a decision. Looking behind and in front of the scenes makes the choice easy. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) has come out in favor of Hillary. Resolution of the AFT, “Hillary Clinton is a tested leader who shares our values, is supported by AFT members, and is prepared for a tough fight in order to champion the interest of students, families and communities”
Why does the AFT support Hillary? There is a one word answer, UNIONS. Hillary Clinton is vehemently against Charter Schools because they do not fall under the rules. They are successful in their own right and challenge today’s paradigm. A reminder once again that tenure teachers who do not measure up to today’s standards cannot be fired; they end up in the minority districts teaching down the inner city youth.
Many issues are at work here; for instance the AFT supports illegal aliens. This is detrimental to legal students, especially Blacks. Extra time is necessary to bring Hispanics up to speed, money that would to into the hiring of support personnel, tutors, mentors etc, to help failing or below standard Black students is not available. In reality the Blacks are like slaves of the Education Plantation. Suffering meted out like the plantation whip.
A look at the New York Charter School System is a prime example of what can be done to what is being done. Success Academy is the quintessential example of the dichotomy between public and charter schools; one flunks the other succeeds. Charters are a threat to the TEACHER’S UNION who control the public education agenda.
The message to the Black Parents, when voting ask yourself who is best for your child, who is in the pockets of failing teachers and unruly unions. You can make a difference, cast your vote for the future not the past. Despite her public pronouncements you must look behind the scenes and only then you will see who is pulling the scenes. Don’t fall for this trap again. They take your vote for granted. Do the right thing for a change, break away from the plantation mindset. It will benefit your child in the long run.
