A brave Baltimore teacher speaks
the truth about schools, students

Washington Examiner, by Gregory Kane

Dave Miceli doesn´t know me from a hole in the ground, but he´s my new hero. (Snip) "How dare you accuse, through implication or otherwise, that the need for ´better schools´ is a reason there is so much killing. I have taught in the Baltimore public school system for the past two decades. What we need is better students. They have trashed brand new computers, destroyed exit signs, set multiple fires, destroyed many, many lockers, stolen teachers´ school supplies, written their filth on the tops of classroom desks, defecated in the bathrooms and stairwells, assaulted teachers

The reason that public education is a failure for so many is that it is "free" for them. If it is free, what is it worth? Nothing. No resemblance to the massive $10K to $25K investment of taxpayer dollars.

And I never spent one day in a public school, so I know something about it.

You are all racists. All you have to do is spend more money on public schools. And teach kids to have abortions.

See how easy it is to be a Democrat?

And some states are lowering the requirements for minority students - in difficult subjects like math, geography, etc - but they will graduate with the same degree as students whose requirements were not lowered.

Genes have an impact on every individual of man or beast --but n aggregate human performance, they´re not nearly as significant as culture.

If genes were as determinate as some people think, the Asian-Caucasian gap would more dramatic than the Caucasian-African gap: but it´s not.

My money´s on culture, two key elements of which are work, and family structure. At the time of the Harlem Renaissance ----an historic upsurge in African-American creativity in the arts, music, drama, literature, scholarship, and professional, religious and civic leadership --- 90% of the black children in Harlem lived in intact- married- mother´n´father households.

And now?

You don´t know whether to weep, or to smash something.

Intelligence is background noise.

This is a cultural issue.

Education is not wasted on people with little capacity to learn.

Back in the ’60’s I worked in the Audio-visual repair department for the Oakland Public School system. The language labs (paid for by the Federal Government) in the various high schools were set up with a master audio tape recorder and listening stations with headsets. When a headset station didn’t work the student was often excused from the exercise. As technicians we removed scores of hairpins, bobby pins, straight pins, needles that were dropped into the jacks of the boxes in efforts to short out the sound. Or needles inserted lengthwise in the headset cord.
For every student that learned a word of Spanish, there must have been five hundred that viewed ‘language lab’ as a goof-off period. And did every thing in their power to make it such.

Humans developed good work habits because they HAD to, in order to survive. The work ethic and cooperation with others were instilled so that the human race could feed and shelter themselves and their families. When people no longer have to work, respect others or fear authority in order to survive; when their needs are met by others, without question, what do we think will happen? Withdraw welfare for able-bodied people and the social structure will quickly be restored.

The problem, as Bill O´Reilly has been talking about, is the destruction of the black family.

Our federal government has had a lot to do with it, starting years ago with the welfare system that encouraged women to have more kids (get more money) and NOT to have a father in the home (or lose more money). Great idea, right?

Once the template was set by our wise government bureaucrats it became self perpetuating and the cycle remains unbroken.

Once a six-year old child raised in this type of chaotic environment, by a parent raised in this type of environment, starts school, what chance does he or she have? Not much.

Even the birds and squirrels in my back yard do a better job of raising their young.

I can´t tell you how many robins, sparrows, cardinals, and blackbirds I have witnessed over the years training their young, teaching them how to get water from the birdbath, seeds from the bird feeder, or bugs on the ground. After several days of training, they fly off and let the young fend for themselves.

Thank God the federal government isn´t interested in their welfare; but then again backyard animals can´t vote.

I would like to ask this Baltimore teacher if his school is allowed to fluke any students. I know teachers where I live that tell me they are not allowed to fluke any student. A "better" school will fluke or kick out any student that is not interested in doing the work. Talk is cheap and doesn´t make you a hero.

I went to an almost-all-black elementary school from 1948 to 1954. My classmates were normal people, raised in normal homes. They almost all had fathers in the home. All the fathers worked and some of the mothers. The students were orderly for the most part and obeyed the teachers. They did their homework and learned the lessons. They were my friends.

So did these awful black kids of today develop some new badness genes? No, welfare drove away their fathers, the black community lost their culture, and the race hustlers made it impossible to hold black people to any standards. Plus the schools lost the ability to discipline and Bill Ayres destroyed their ability to teach anything useful or interesting.

Once upon a time (I am 73), being a parent meant providing shelter, food, clothing, and education to one´s children. This provision has now been usurped by government, which is not adequate to the task. I still remember a parent of a public school student. She was ill and bedridden. When I spoke with her, she told me that she could not get her son to stop bouncing on her bed. How absurd is that? Parents who cannot control their own children are an abomination.
Allow children to run wild, and that is what they will do, run wild.
There is no fear of God in their eyes; fear of God and judgment to come has been abolished by our "churches". "The prophets prophesy falsely, the priests bear rule by their means, and my people love to have it so." Thus wrote a Prophet.
The center does not hold. Children will behave only if they have a reason to do so, and that comes from parents. AFDC was expressly designed to replace the father in a family; now we have wild children packs running the streets.
It´s not going to get better until we have a major collapse.

#17, it´s not gov´t that did that, but liberal Democrats.

They used a bunch of "experts" and such to fool people into thinking it was the best course of action.

Blacks in America have been divided by white liberal democrats for decades.

And in schools, the lack of discipline is the main factor. No one inside that school can touch, or for that matter, raise their voice, to a student without getting reprimanded, fired, or both.
Teacher´s unions keep lowering the standards in many under-priveleged districts to achieve higher graduation rates but that diploma won´t get you into any four-year college since the students weren´t challenged to meet those minimum requirements for college. But, boy the union can say graduation rates are improving though, right?

I buy groceries in a military commissary and see it time and time again: black moms accompanied by 2 or 3 well-behaved young kids at their sides as they stroll the aisles. Obviously well-structured families with hard-working fathers who have apparently instilled some discipline into their homes. It can and does work. The biggest challenge is how and where to break the cycle that most are in.

I work at a well known Fortune 500 company. The head of our dept is black, the person I support is a black from Africa (who refused the welfare our govt tried to foist on him when he moved here). One of my black co-workers is both an attorney and an accountant. There are many others. We also have people from India, Asians of course, all over.

I think although there is something of a case to be made for genes (look at different dog breeds - I think we have tendencies)and that mostly culture and expectations from one´s parents or other authority figure are the overriding factor in what we become.

When Americans over the age of, let us say, 45, look at any of the iconic paintings of America’s Founders — the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the signing of the Constitution, George Washington crossing the Delaware, any of the individual portraits the Founders — what do they see? They see great men founding a great country. If you ask recent graduates of almost any American university what they see when they look at these paintings, chances are that they see something entirely different. They are apt to see rich, white males who are not great and who did not found a

The Arkansas Senate race has been close in virtually every serious poll. The Republican challenger, Tom Cotton, probably had a small lead a month or so ago; after a massive negative assault on him by Harry Reid´s Super PAC, the Democratic incumbent, Mark Pryor, is probably now ahead by a point or two. That´s the story told by every reputable public and private poll, including, I´m told, polls by both campaigns. So what´s up with the New York Times/Kaiser Family Foundation poll released today showing Pryor up by 10 points? What´s up is revealed if one burrows into the complete poll results.

“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.” So wrote the great Christian apologist C.S. Lewis. By the same token, I can’t imagine God’s glory is increased any when we make movies about him, and so I don’t suppose the Lord is much interested in the latest box office news out of Hollywood. Nonetheless, that news is good for faith-based films. Not long after the indie film God’s Not Dead was a “surprise hit,” (i.e., a hit

On Friday, President Barack Obama extended the decision on Canada’s Keystone XL pipeline until after the 2014 midterm elections. Announced on a Friday afternoon (the Good Friday holiday, no less) the story was barely covered by mainstream media outlets already heading out of town for their extended Easter weekend. (Snip) It defies any sense of logic or reason to suggest that 1,000 miles of new pipeline, installed with 2014 technology, would somehow endanger humanity when we already have 2,300 times that much already working without catastrophe.

For almost a month, Kansas Citians lived through what amounted to a horror movie without an ending. According to the narrative described in court documents, it would take cutting-edge and occasionally controversial law enforcement technology, including license-plate readers, to put an end to the horror show. The story of this very 21st century hunt began playing out on the tangle of freeways just south of Kansas City, Mo., where, starting in March, one driver after another reported being shot at by a mystery gunman — nobody they knew, for reasons nobody could fathom. The suspect would later be identified as a driver wearing

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey.

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what
