    It’s a school where only half the students graduate and just a few dozen will go to college. Last year, not one student scored proficient in any state testing
    “That’s absurd to me. That’s absurd to me,” says Warren’s mother Janel Nelson. “That’s your teachers report card, ultimately.”


    Ok.... It's ALL the teachers faults. Their failure. Keep believing that. And don't forget to pass that message on to future generations.

    Always reminds me of that story about the gay Wall Street liberal who thought he was going to make a difference by teaching in an inner city school and tapped out in only a year.

    They're too stupid to move out of a neighborhood where every male is killed before he turns 21 and it's the teacher's fault for not getting them to pass a test?

    Exactly what I was thinking when I read it. How about it is the parents report card. That has been an F for decades but let's keep finding alternative options to blame. Make the parents sign every piece of homework the student has along with tests/quizzes and see how that statistic looks.
    I have a friend who teaches at basically an inner city school(even though it is not ina city) and if he wants to fail a child, he has to contact the parents 3 times to warn them the child will fail. Amazingly most don't give a shit, blame everyone but themselves(or the kid) and fail to pick up the phone, return an email or a letter on the third try. Result the child moves on. That is our education system at work

    Clearly, those tests are racist by design.

    Make the tests Ebonics friendly, and the Maths should test street knowledge of slinging dope.

    The education system is fine. The blacks don't want to engage in the system, that's on them. Don't blame the game, blame the dumb fucks that refuse to play it.

    I guess there weren't enough Michelle Phiffer types who could learn to rap and dance from them while trying to teach them how valuable and special they are along with math and reading.

    As we all know the state was wrong for asking the wrong questions

    While the education system is clearly not without its flaws, I essentially agree. Billions of dollars are poured into these inner city schools but the problem is that there's just no interest from the students to actually learn or show up. I say close them all down and for the rare few who actually do want to learn, We'll figure out how to accommodate them. Drive them to a halfway decent school in a limo everyday, it would still cost less that the suckhole of inner city public schools.

    Their nurturing environment clearly is why they're succeeding.
