President Obama wants schools to take race into consideration when developing discipline policies

President Barack Obama is backing a controversial campaign by progressives to regulate schools’ disciplinary actions so that members of major racial and ethnic groups are penalized at equal rates, regardless of individuals’ behavior.

His July 26 executive order established a government panel to promote “a positive school climate that does not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools.”

“African Americans lack equal access to highly effective teachers and principals, safe schools, and challenging college-preparatory classes, and they disproportionately experience school discipline,” said the order, titled “White House Initiative On Educational Excellence.”
The full story is HERE.

So let me get this straight.....if Little Johnny speaks out without raising his hand, he could get suspended because Moe, Larry, and Curley are of a different race and were suspended for beating up and shaking down some classmates.

How asinine is that?

If discipine in a school is to be successful, it has to be COLOR BLIND and the disciplinary measures have to fit the severity of the action.

I rank this right up there with the notion we need to award kids in school for everything...even just for showing up.
