Florida Dumbs Down Schools For Blacks

Even the NAACP is pissed this time.  Why?

The Florida State Board of Education passed a strategy plan that sets academic standards for students in math and reading based upon their race.

The ill-conceived plan calls for 92% of Asians, 88% of whites, 80% of Hispanics and 74% of black students to read and do math at or above grade level by 2018. Poverty and disabilities are also factored.

Juan Lopez, whose John F. Kennedy Middle School has 88% black students sputtered “Our kids, although they come from different socioeconomic backgrounds, they still have the ability to learn, to dumb down the expectations for one group, that seems a little unfair.”

The plan is aggressive though imbalanced and racist. Testing for the 2011-2012 period for reading proficiency was met by just of 69% of whites and Asians, 38% of blacks.

One must ask rhetorically will Florida then provide underachieving blacks lifetime supplies of food, housing, medicine, and a car since none of them will be able to get a job? Or will the state just expect these failures to be taken care of by the wider taxpayer base nationally?

Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?
