If Johnny Can´t Read, Who´s to Blame?
American Thinker, by T.R. Clancy

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 7/8/2018 10:22:14 AM

When a federal court dismissed on June 29 the class-action lawsuit claiming the State of Michigan had deprived Detroit public schoolchildren of “their right to literacy,” the left was all set to react in faux shock. The court’s key finding hardly came as news to most of us, but the headlines in the New York Times sounded as if someone had denied climate change: “Access to Literacy’ Is Not a Constitutional Right, Judge in Detroit Rules.” These days, when everything progressives want government to provide free is defined as a “right,” i.e., healthcare, housing, a guaranteed income, American citizenship for illegal aliens, etc., etc.,

Have his eyes checked. Younger son had problems. Turned out to be extremely far-sighted, a condition that the school eye exams did not disclose.

"Whatever is behind the literacy problems in Detroit schools, it’s not lack of money, state indifference, or ´disinvestment.´"

This is pretty much universal in any urban setting. Between the unions and the grifters, wholly supported by the school boards and the revolving door superintendents, public education should be outlawed, replaced by private schools with current school facilities used as incubators.

Sure didn´t take long to blame parents did it? Always blame parents for a "teacher´s failure. How´s this for a bumper sticker. "if your kid can READ this THANK a parent." Damn I get tired of such blame. Pay your taxes and expect your kid to be taught to read by an overpaid loser and it´s your fault the kid can´t read.

Wow - I guess I´m biased since my mother taught me to read before I started school. We did the same with all our kids, too.

Blame? I call it pride. Teachers need to pick up the baton, but if my kid is unable to read and he´s in school, I will be hot-damned if I leave it at that.

Parents are ultimately responsible for whether their children read.

Public schools are about the union money for Democrats to seek and retain power. Teaching Johnny how to read hardly enters the liberal mind. In fact, they want Johnny dumb.

Government schools purpose is not to teach kids things their parents should be teaching them. Back when most were illiterate most schooling had to revolve around the 3 R´s.
By the time I started Kindergarten in the late 50´s they wouldn´t let a kid in unless he knew his alphabet, could count to 10, knew his address and phone number, could tie his shoes. Actually the list was quite lengthy.
By first grade they had to take all kids, even the ones with parents who couldn´t be bothered teaching their kids basic things like reading and writing.

Negligent and uncaring parents will always be around, but schools lack the ability to get a kid to think something worthwhile, like getting an education, when the parents are opposed to it.

Yes, if your little Johnny can´t read, it is your fault. ESPECIALLY if the child has learning of vision issues. One has no right to expect the government to care more about their kids than they do.

So when just the black and hispanic kids don´t perform, it´s never the teachers´ fault, but how do they explain white kids´ success, then? Are there any white kids in this story? Did anyone do a comparison as to why white kids in bad neighborhoods do better than the black kids in the same neighborhoods, or did all the white parents wisely remove their kids from said schools?

POINT: Black kids can´t read because they are not being taught to read. Whose fault except the teachers´ is that?

The fault lies with the voters, not getting involved in the political system and electing people that will do the will of the people. Lack of education has become a generational problem. In many areas of the country, the people might not know how to read or write, but they certainly know how to get the government benefits. Their children don´t have a chance.

My mother taught me to read. I read the newspaper for content with my breakfast a year before I went to 1st grade.

I remember sitting on the floor with my mother with flash cards learning the alphabet, then short words, using PHONICS. Then longer words. Then I found new words on billboards as we drove around, Mom and Dad explained them to me. I remember being thrilled at only one letter changing "hotel" into a whole different word, "motel". They made it a game. I´ve been a voracious reader my whole life.

This is primarily a parent´s responsibility, with schools backing them up.

It´s the fault of the parents. Ultimately the child belongs to his parents, not the state.
Parents have to be involved. Check out the school. Check out the teacher. Get involved, don´t just hand over your kid to the bureaucrats and expect results.
Better yet, home school.

In the 1960s, black kids couldn´t read or otherwise keep pace with white kids because they ate lead paint in their tenements. Today, the excuse for black kids not learning, despite limitless spending on public schools, is systemic white privilege. Black kids proudly deride reading as "acting white," and multigenerational welfare rewards a lifetime of indolence among single-parent households. To criticize such a system would be downright deplorable.

Parents are the kids first teachers. They have the kids 5 years before kids enter school and can work wonders if they choose to put in the effort. When school starts, it takes parents, students, and teachers, putting in the effort, to see that learning takes place. In a perfect world, all kids would have the skills needed for the real world. Thank goodness my grandkids are growing up the way I did.

I remember an article out of Australia, where some LIEberal group noticed that children of parents who read to them every day learned to read faster and better than the children of parents who never read to them.

The article was about the efforts of the group to eliminate reading to one´s child because it created an unfair advantage for their child over children whose parents did´t have time to read to them.

Yeah, right, like I´m ever going to do anything to disadvantage my child or grandchildren.

I am old now, really old, but I learned to read before I was four years old. My parents believed in their responsibility to teach and guide their child. It was fun for me to respond to their encouragement. They also taught me to write. With those basic hurdles accomplished the world can become any child´s oyster.

There is pleasure to be had in watching Democrats make fools of themselves.

Highlights: Cost: The estimated price tag for the entire project is $892 million. The ballpark itself is projected to cost $809 million and related infrastructure — including a parking garage and a pedestrian bridge over nearby Adamo Drive — is pegged at $83 million. The cost of the stadium includes one of its standout features, a translucent roof expected to cost almost $245 million. Capacity: The proposed ballpark will seat 28,216 people. Add in standing areas, and the total capacity will be 30,842. That would be the fewest seats of any Major League Baseball venue. By comparison, the latest configuration of Tropicana

SUNRISE — After multiple days of testimony, questioning and followup, the commission created to assess what led to the school shooting that left 17 dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High on Feb. 14 has ruled that shooter Nikolas Cruz’s involvement with a school-based discipline diversion program had no effect on his ability to buy weapons. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission’s discussion of the program known as PROMISE carried over from the commission’s last meeting in June. It was the first item on the agenda Tuesday so that the commission could move on to discussing other topics, including

President Trump announced his appointment of D. C. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court a few minutes ago. Trump was joined at the podium by Kavanaugh and his wife and two daughters. The event was, I think, superbly staged. Some observations: 1) President Trump’s introduction of Kavanaugh was beautifully conceived and delivered. Was there a teleprompter that I missed? Trump’s announcement seemed to be extemporaneous, and it was done flawlessly. Barack Obama was never able to talk off the cuff like this. 2) Trump emphasized Kavanaugh’s establishment credentials. With a razor-thin one-vote margin in the Senate, this is a good

According to recent court filings submitted to the Eastern District of Virginia court, the meeting was held during the time a Grand Jury had convened in Manafort’s case.

New tobacco regulations ordered by the Food and Drug Administration were close, but no cigar. By Aug. 10, premium cigars were to be packaged in boxes with new, larger health warnings. The cigar industry says this is costly and ruins boxes considered works of art. But on July 5, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia placed a temporary injunction on the regulation. In Tampa, known as Cigar City for its history as an industry epicenter, the injunction was celebrated.

John Sexton embeds entertaining video of Tucker Carlson and Cornel West, and offers a good explanation of why socialism always fails, from the perspective of the vast majority. He focuses on a good question that Tucker asked West: If democratic socialism works, why doesn’t Venezuela have toilet paper? The video is embedded at the end of this post. Of course West’s answers are lame–“real” socialism has never been tried, blah, blah, blah. You could infer from this that West is an idiot and, if he were arguing in good faith, that would be a fair assessment. But I think the truth is

"Because the algorithms that generate the fakes continuously learn how to more effectively replicate the appearance of reality, deep fakes cannot easily be detected by other algorithms—indeed, in the case of generative adversarial networks, the algorithm works by getting really good at fooling itself."

We told you it would happen, and it finally has. Conservatives long predicted that feminism and transgenderism were ultimately incompatible, but for a long time it seemed like the LGBT movement might just hold them together. Well, on Saturday that movement burst open, as lesbians led the parade in attacking transgenderism. "Transactivism Erases Lesbians!" read a banner that temporarily led the Pride in London march in the heart of Britain´s capital. This banner naturally caused quite a stir, with London Mayor Sadiq Khan denouncing it in a statement.

Stockton, California will become the first city in the country to participate in a test of Universal Basic Income, in which 100 residents will be given $500-dollars-a-month, with no strings attached. The program aims to create a level of income that no one will fall beneath. By providing impoverished residents a regular sum of money that they can use on anything they wish, be it food, clothes, gas, or starting a new venture, those behind the program believe it could go a long way to give people enough support to try out new ideas.

It´s often been observed that special counsel Robert Mueller, assigned to investigate alleged Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign, has yet to charge anyone with a crime involving Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign. The biggest of Mueller´s indictments, that of one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, has no connection at all to collusion. And until a few days ago, it appeared to have no connection to Donald Trump, either. Now, though, Mueller has revealed why he believes the Manafort prosecution is related to the 2016 Trump campaign.

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

Washington- Have you been keeping up with the charges against Congressman Jim Jordan? They first wafted from the swamp around July 3 when NBC News quoted three former wrestlers as saying the congressman had to know about “inappropriate” behavior by an Ohio State University team physician towards some Ohio State wrestlers. The “inappropriate” behavior supposedly occurred 30 years ago. Yes, I said 30 years ago. That was when Jordan, a former two-time NCAA champion, was an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State, and, oh yes, he was in his early 20s.
