Too Many Whites Won School Election–Racial Demographics Rule

A California middle school principal is keeping student election results secret, because too many white kids won. There weren’t enough black students. This is important according to principal Lena Van Haren, because the school is about 80% black and 20% white. She said that she “wants to make sure all voices are heard from all backgrounds.” In a school with that kind of racial makeup, about 80% of the student government positions should have been filled with students of color, in order for Read more […]

Caesar’s Schools Turning Kids into Good Little Romans (And Why it Can’t be Otherwise)

My job took me inside the local public Middle School, where I saw a large sign in a hallway, emblazoned with the slogan, “When You Believe in Yourself, Nothing is Impossible.” As I thought about it the rest of the day, it occurred to me that this is a classic example of how and why “religious neutrality” or pure secularism is impossible. Even a blathering, non-offensive piece of self-esteem propaganda like this shows why the idea of banishing religion from the public school system is a Read more […]

Chicago Schools a Microcosm of Obama’s Next Term

If you want to know what an Obama second term will be like, all you have to do is look at the Chicago school strike: Out-of-control state workers who are demanding more money when the graduation rate is about 60 percent and we are in a deep recession. Here’s what Rahm Emanuel said: “For the first time on record, Chicago Public Schools have achieved higher than a 60 percent graduation rate.” To be exact, it was 60.6 percent, and for this there was a celebration. Keep in mind that this is a Read more […]
