Where’s The Diversity?

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Oh right, there’s an Oriental lady bottom right.

Former Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Beverly Hall arrived at the Fulton County Jail on Tuesday night to surrender to authorities on charges related to the cheating scandal.

Hall and 34 other educators were indicted on Friday, accused of cheating, conspiring to cheat, or concealing cheating on the 2009 CRCT test. The 90-page indictment accuses the former national superintendent of the year of operating a criminal enterprise, allegedly rewarding teachers who cheated, and punishing and even firing teachers who did not.

Those indicted in connection with the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal were ordered to turn themselves in by midnight on Tuesday.  By 3 p.m. on Wednesday, all 35 educators had turned themselves in.

Is r chillen learnin’?

This goes on all the time. It especially goes on in black area schools. It happens because the amount of cash given to schools is based on student performances. If students perform, schools get topped-up. If they don’t perform, they don’t get as much money. Black schools under-perform at ridiculous levels, so the only way for edumacators like Beverly Hall to keep the edumacation money spigot open is to lie, cheat and threaten.

It’s happening all across America and you should Google search something like “school scandals” or something similar. You’ll get 5 trillion results.

Why don’t you hear about this on the nightly msm? You tell The Mayor. Why don’t you?

How did The Mayor do on the Pew Research IQ Quiz? Very well, thank you very much. 13/13. That’s 100% for all you folk that were shuffled through the North American edumacational system.

To be fair though, a set of easier questions probably don’t exist. Except in mills of higher learning, of course.

The First Day Of School

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

The first day of school is never easy and can be a real nerve-wracking experience; just ask this young student at Toronto’s M’Kawi B’Molisi Public School at Jane/Finch. Good thing for the young transsexual that Grief Councillors, Psychotherapists, Equity Directors, Diversity Case Manager’s, Bilingual Race Relations Expert’s and the Rainbow Lesbian/Bi and Transgendered Dance Troupe were all on hand to help this marginalized youth cope through his first day.

Remember, there is no “I” in team, but there are two “I’s” in dIversIty.

Spotted at Belmont Club.

I don’t know too much about this Climate Change thing that so many people have gotten into over the past decade or so. I know some folks say it is a religion of peace. Me, I’ve never had much of a religious/apocalyptic bent, so it’s just never interested me enough to look into it any deeper than I have, say, Scientology or palmistry.

But, whatever the truth or falsity of their promises of salvation: I do know that I would far, far rather the earth spirits’ wrath burn the planet to a crisp than see these people and their thoroughly fascist aesthetic succeed. Better to be slightly warmer on one’s feet than be pressed into a chanting, letter-shaped mob of anonymous, faceless Action-Takers on one’s knees.

H Marks The Spot

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

In an age where no child is allowed to fail, Grand Banks school board in Michigan is taking away failing marks such as F’s and replacing them with H’s. If a child gets an H, he/she will be allowed to take the part of the course they failed over again so they can improve their failing/not-so-much-failing grade:

Principals discussed the plans with teachers before Thanksgiving, administrators said. The district will offer Saturday school, after school or online opportunities to retake the failed course.

Superintendent Bernard Taylor said he district didn’t want to give students a “life failure,” because of a failed class at age 14, 15 or 16 — an age at which he says most people don’t have their lives together.

It’s true, children really don’t have their shit together at those ages, to let them drink from the cup of failure at such an early age is barbaric. Since society is now based on everyone receiving the same ribbon whether one loses or wins (accept there is no losing or winning), it is possible for one to go through life never having experienced any failure whatsoever. We are all winners. We are the world.

Let’s just remove the word failure entirely from our lexicon. From now on when a child doesn’t get over 50%, we will just say they are temporarily non-passable. To make it impossible for others to identify temporary non-passables (TNP’s), each school school should administer a different grading system when it comes to marking. For instance, school A might have the order of marks going from A as the best mark to H as the worst mark. School B would then make the best mark an H and the worst mark an A. School C would make M the best mark and Q the worst mark. With 26 letters of the alphabet, the combinations or poor marks and good marks are virtually endless. It’s a little razzamadazzle combined with a little switcharoonie.

So, when little Keeshawn is asked how he did in English, he would say proudly that he recieved an A. Mind you, an A could be 7%. Yale and Harvard don’t know this, nor should they.

No child will be left behind, every child will be equally smart, and all schools will receive the same funding because the whole universe will be as one.
