DOJ Is Calling For Race Based School Punishment
The Department of Justice co-wrote a letter with the Department of Education saying, in effect, that it's racist to punish students for behaving badly in class! The Feds want public schools to, without delay, take into consideration race when disciplining students, so that minorities are not punished more often than others, regardless if minority students misbehave more often! U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder instructed government schools they should not attempt to treat all races the same. Instead, schools should now treat the races differently by handing out weaker punishments to some so that equal outcomes are achieved for students of all races. This new directive, called disparate impact, is riddled with problems because not all races are equally to misbehave in school. The letter, that was sent to public schools across the country this week, is clear what the federal government expects of local schools: "Schools also violate Federal law when they evenhandedly implement facially neutral policies and practices that, although not adopted with the intent to discriminate, nonetheless have an unjustified effect of discriminating against students on the basis of race." So you understand what disciplinary policies the Feds consider racist: ..."policies that impose mandatory suspension, expulsion, or citation (e.g., ticketing or other fines or summonses) upon any student who commits a specified offense - such as being tardy to class, being in possession of a cellular phone, being found insubordinate, acting out, or not wearing the proper school uniform." You be the judge here. Do you believe in this kind of race based punishment?
