Liberal Utopia: Boston Dumps Young Black Males into Special Ed

Posted by on Nov 13, 2014 at 8:03 am

Why do these liberals hate black people?

Young black males in Boston are being dumped in special education classes and separated from their classmates at an alarming rate, a stunning new report out today reveals, prompting minority leaders to call for immediate reforms.

“It’s an unintentional consequence of bad policies,” said Najma Nazy’at, director of the Boston-area Youth Organizing Project. “I believe that how it happens here is through pushing out the young people who they just assume are going to create the most problems.”

The “Opportunity and Equity” report — released this morning by Boston Public Schools, the Annenberg Institute for School Reform, and the Center for Collaborative Education — found that nearly 40 percent of black boys with disabilities at the elementary level are being taught outside of mainstream classrooms.

The report found black male students were placed in separate classrooms at almost twice the rate of white males, and Latino males at 1.6 times the rate of whites.

The 261-page report analyzed data on 88,000 Boston students and points to “staggering” disparities in the graduation rates of blacks and Latinos compared with whites and Asians, and has prompted the head of the NAACP’s Boston chapter to request a meeting with Mayor Martin J. Walsh and school 

“It does concern us that so many of our kids are identified as special needs when we know there is no difference between a child of color and a white child if they’re afforded the same opportunities,” NAACP Boston President Michael Curry said.

Hard to believe this is happening when they have such wonderful roles models as Governor Deval Patrick and the failure in the White House.

    Wow, it’s almost like liberal educators believe that these kids are genetically inferior, or something.

    It’s much more craven than that. Every “special ed” student brings with him an extra pile of Federal money for the school district. Schools have a financial incentive to place as many “normal” kids in special ed as they can get away with.

    Ehhhh, well, they DO in fact need a special kind of education – because we have vast experience that proves that the “sit still and listen” kind doesn’t work too well.

    There’s a financial advantage to having your kid in special ed. Increased money goes to the family. Google, “crazy check”. “Parents” take the bait and screw over their own children for a few extra bucks from the government. It’s a very sick culture that would do that to their own children.

    When I was a kid in the late 60’s early 70’s, the NYC Board of Ed instituted a policy known as “mainstreaming,” where “troubled” kids were placed in the advanced classes in the assumption that we would be a positive influence on them. You may guess the results of this policy.

    So, now we’ve come full circle.

    >>when we know there is no difference between a child of color and a white child if they’re afforded the same opportunities

    The NAACP may “know” this, but is their knowledge based on actual data, or merely wishful thinking?

    Regardless, the issue here isn’t really whether minorities are put disproportionately into special education, but whether or not special education is being utilized appropriately. IE are the individuals who can benefit from special ed actually getting it? Are there individuals who really won’t benefit who are being put into special ed anyway?

    EG, even assuming that the NAACP is right, AND that minority students are put into special ed at higher rates than non-minorities with identical academic performance (something I don’t think that’s been shown yet), that doesn’t necessarily mean that there is anything “wrong” with that. IE, maybe Whites and Asians who can benefit are being put into special ed at lower rates. Is that OK with the NAACP?

    I think there are a lot more questions that need to be answered here before the NAACP’s implied charges of institutional racism on behalf of the Boston school system can be justified.

    If black males had role models and if something resembling “parenting” were more prevalent in the black community, these numbers would be lower.

    But to point out such obviously truthful things is the very height of racism today.

    Looks like we also need some programs to help white kids get into the NBA. You know, since there’s no difference and all.

    They just showed the people getting “unruly” at a town council meeting in the glorious people’s republic of Massholes where a total tobacco ban is proposed.
    Esteemed party member comrade kommissar Gruber called the proles stupid from his ivory tower in between bong hits of choom.

    Can’t tell the truth about the Black “culture”. After all, all cultures are equal. And “Diversity” is our “Strength”.

    At least now the REST of the students may be able to get a decent education. If the “teachers” are even remotely competent. And the district is not sucking the Common Core duck.

    You DO have to feel truly sorry, however, for the TRUE Special Ed kids who now have to live with the chimps and sheboons. They deserve better than this…

    This is why education needs to be privatized. The troublemakers need to be kicked OUT.

    Let the do-gooding bureaucrats get transferred to Child Protective Services, where they can start looking at the parents at the age where their kids first become “special” and put those parents on trial for not doing their jobs. If they don’t get to keep Junior, maybe Junior will go to someone who cares enough to give him a future outside of prison.

    Liberals are just managing the mess they have made. Poorly. Courses of instruction in the schools, academic rigor, codes of dress, rules regarding unceasing obscenity, all must be set to suit them, as must be examinations for promotion in fire departments, the military, and police forces. Blacks must be admitted to universities for which they are not remotely qualified, where departments of Black Studies must be established to please them. Corporate work forces, federal departments, and elite high-schools must be judged not on whether they perform their functions but on whether they have the right number of blacks.

    Well actually, R_of_the_H, the Preferred Species ladder has four rungs. Muslims stand on the top rung of that ladder, Hispanics anchor the bottom rung, and Blacks and then Homosexuals fill the two rungs between. Asians and Whites, of course, have no standing on that ladder and can be scorned with impunity. And the true value of Affirmative Action assignments are shown every day by such fine examples as Charles Bolden, Jeh Johnson, and Susan Rice. Those three tell you all you need to know about how much Affirmative Action has done for this country.
