Different standards for
different students

Chicago Tribune, by Diane Rado

Original Article

Posted By:KingBubo, 5/12/2014 10:13:05 AM

Under a dramatic new approach to rating public schools, Illinois students of different backgrounds no longer will be held to the same standards — with Latinos and blacks, low-income children and other groups having lower targets than whites for passing state exams, the Tribune has found. In reading, for example, 85 percent of white third- through eighth-grade students statewide will be expected to pass state tests by 2019, compared with about 73 percent for Latinos and 70 percent for black students, an analysis of state and federal records shows.

Comments:
Some animals are more equal than others. Soft bigoty of low expectations, so on and so forth. Horrible idea!

And this will help Latinos and blacks succeed in life, how?

It is a rare illiterate that gets beyond their beginnings.

Congratulations to Chicago.

Your have officially declared that Blacks and Latinos are inferior to Whites and Asians.

Didn´t a NY Times editor get fired for writing a book that said that?

There´s an article in "Must Reads" about a guy named Nicholas Wade who lost his job because he wrote a book: A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History.

From Amazon:

Wade, the longtime journalist covering genetic advances for The New York Times, draws widely on the work of scientists who have made crucial breakthroughs in establishing the reality of recent human evolution. The most provocative claims in this book involve the genetic basis of human social habits. What we might call middle-class social traits—thrift, docility, nonviolence—have been slowly but surely inculcated genetically within agrarian societies, Wade argues. These “values” obviously had a strong cultural component, but Wade points to evidence that agrarian societies evolved away from hunter-gatherer societies in some crucial respects. Also controversial are his findings regarding the genetic basis of traits we associate with intelligence, such as literacy and numeracy, in certain ethnic populations, including the Chinese and Ashkenazi Jews.

Apparently, folks in Illinois agree with him, even though the NYTimes fired him.

Unlike the article, you don´t need to sign in to read the graphs. And once you see these graphs you´ll realize just how dramatic the differences are between the black, hispanic, white and Asian (held to the highest standards) are.

The sad part of this is that Blacks and Latinos will be too ignorant to realize that they are being put in a lower level of intelligence. State run racism.

Alas, ignorance is bliss!

we have moved past equal opportunity to equal outcomes.... So at the end of the day students can say they passed the test....this has always been the goal of the left.

What I do not understand is why even test these disadvantaged groups... just give them a passing grade.

That is the problem when you have no standards... if you cannot get the desired outcome you change or lower the standard or call it racist...

The liberal education performance cycle:
- create a culture that honors attitude over performance
- recognize performance has decreased
- adjust teacher metrics so pay is unaffected
- recognize student performance has decreased
- lower expectation of performance

The Asian education performance cycle:
- create a culture where performance of the student equals honoring the parents
- recognize performance has improved but seek continued improvement
- adjust teacher metrics to tune teaching to achieve further improvement
- raise expectations of students in response to more effective teaching

Dramatic? New? This multiple rating system has been in effect since the sixties. The underclass will be successful only because the policies have been forcefully inserted into private industry, where every major corporation now has its own mandatory version of "diversity" training. Talent and ability have taken a back seat to the rainbow workforce.

First, let´s point out that the oft-quoted phrase, "THE SOFT BIGOTRY OF LOW EXPECTATIONS was first uttered by George W. Bush in a speech to the NAACP in 2000. The Chicago BoE plan merely codifies these low expectations.

Second, let us not lose sight of the fact that Arne Duncan was once in charge of Chicago schools. You know him. He´s Obama´s Sec. of Education now, in charge of screwing up the nation´s schools.

And as long as we´re name dropping, how about this one: Dr. Ben Carson. We´ll come back to him.

This article infuriated me! To waste human capital this way - especially in Chicago - is sickening! I just finished reading about a Walton family-supported charter school in NYC where mostly black kids were surpassing their white peers in nearby high level public schools. Two of the key reasons cited for this (against the "common wisdom") result were: 1) challenging the kids; and 2) parents´ belief in the importance of education.

And now you know why I mentioned Dr. Carson

Chicago is reversing this whole concept by telling whole races of kids it´s OK to be dumb, stupid, uneducated, and inferior to their white classmates. This way lies madness,

Viewing the graphs I wonder what causes the white-Asian gap change from 3rd-8th to the 11th grade; where reading decreases but the math increases?

I find this attitude of lowered expectations a horrible system. Giving a kid years to come up to speed instead of requiring extra work or summer school doesn´t help the kid but encourages the race divide. Imagine if Dr. Carson´s mother and teachers lived by this rule.

But let´s not forget all those white kids who are similiarly held down/back by a teacher judging him/her based on the parents background. Those kids get the short end of the stick too.

That´s raacist!!!
It has been scientifically proven that all races are equal. There are no differences in abilities. See The Bell Curve.
If this decision is allowed to stand, in the future graduates from this school system will be sorted out based on their color.
How´s that sound?

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

Barack Obama may have lost a few approval rating points with this move. The president was seen cutting the line at Austin´s Franklin Barbecue Thursday afternoon, while in town to raise money for the Democratic Party. Lives at the eatery are infamously long, and have been known to stretch as long as three hours wait.But Mr Obama did no waiting today, as he showed up at the restaurant, shook a few hands and made his way straight to the register to order more than $300 worth of meat. ´I know this is a long line.

Bears, beer and horse heads: What exactly is going on with the leader of the free world? On a single day this week in Denver, President Obama scarfed down pizza and drinks with strangers, shot pool with Colorado’s governor and shook hands with a guy on the street wearing a horse mask. His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule. More than five years into his presidency, Obama is trying to free himself from the constraints of office,

Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction."

She also called not only for the U.S. government to process minors arriving illegally from Central America on a “case-by-case basis" but for the government to “treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids.” “Quite frankly, I would rather they treat the Mexican kids the way they treat the non-contiguous country kids,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, claiming that sending these children back to their home countries would be like “sending them back into a

SAN DIEGO - The family that drew national attention when they were rescued at sea off their sailboat, Rebel Heart, in April is finally setting the record straight. Charlotte and Eric Kaufman and their two daughters were about 1,000 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez when 1-year old Lyra became sick. That was when their adventure of a lifetime turned into a nightmare. It began with a fever, then a rash and then Lyra became lethargic.

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the current state of affairs surrounding the issue of immigration. Flake, the guest of the show’s occasionally occurring “Center Seat” segment, admitted the rise of a populist movement opposing any immigration reform movement that included a version of amnesty. However, he admitted to being perplexed as to why there’s such an opposition stating there’s a need for not only low-skill labor “particularly in the agricultural areas and hospitality areas,” but high-skill labor of “those in the STEM fields.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHEN HAYES, Weekly Standard: You

A cargo train used by Mexicans and Central Americans to travel toward the U.S. border derailed in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca on Wednesday, stranding about 1,300 migrants, emergency services said. Many of the migrants aboard were young people and nobody was injured when the train nicknamed "the Beast" came off the tracks, a spokesman for local emergency services said. Since last October, more than 50,000 unaccompanied minors, most from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, have been caught illegally crossing the southwest border of the United States. Children say that they are fleeing violence at home and hope that they will be

Unlike many of his Republican colleagues, Karl Rove advocated Thursday for bipartisan compromise on immigration. “Republicans have to look at this as an opportunity that they have to work,” the Republican strategist said on the Fox News program “Happening Now.” “It’s an opportunity to get some things done to help secure the border.” He suggested that in working with President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion request for additional funds to deal with the current immigration crisis, Republicans could make policy gains like increasing the amount of border patrols. “They ought to sit down in good faith,” he said of Republicans and the
