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 officials.
“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.
