Eric Holder, and now Loretta Lynch, made it clear in 2014 that classroom punishment should be doled out according to a quota system. The Education Department threatens school districts with lawsuits and funding cuts if it finds racial “disparities” in the number of black students suspended or expelled for bad behavior.
The Black Lives Matter ideology now rules our school discipline. Subversives are taking control with the help of the Federal government.
Schools are now scared straight in many regions of this country, particularly the inner city, where discipline is most sorely needed. There is less discipline and more violence.
Teachers are expected to silently suffer physical abuse and ignore criminal activity from violent students or find they are out of work.
The NY Post has a report that shouldn’t surprise anyone but it should unnerve everyone. Discipline is down in public schools since the Federal government made it about racism and big government control.
Look at Syracuse:
A recent survey of 830 Syracuse teachers by the New York State United Teachers union found that more than a third say they’ve been assaulted at least once in the classroom, with more than 70% of victims saying they’ve suffered cuts and bruises or broken bones. Overall, two-thirds of teachers say they fear for their safety, and 43% complain their schools are no longer committed to protecting them. As a result, nearly half say they’re “seriously considering” quitting.
Most teachers blame the district’s new code of conduct. “Negative student behavior is being tolerated at the expense of safety,” a local union spokesman said.
What do you think about this –
In February, a Colorado teacher sued Thompson School District for firing her when she called the police to report death threats from a 13-year-old student. Carrie Giesler claims superiors warned her against documenting attacks by the boy, who allegedly punched her in the ribs and broke her thumb. “I’m going to kill you, bitch,” she said he told her one day. The district discouraged punishments, she says, after adopting “restorative practices” whose goals, according to its website, are to “reduce suspensions and expulsions (and) reduce (the) number of discipline referrals.”
Last month, a 16-year-old high school student in Syracuse slugged not one but two teachers in the mouth after they asked him to put away his phone, something Obama educrats say is a big no-no. The Education Department states that even if the only reason a school happens to punish more black students for unauthorized “use of electronic devices” is because blacks actually “are engaging in the use of electronic devices at a higher rate than students of other races,” it can still be liable for discrimination under so-called “disparate impact” theory.
St. Paul teacher Theo Olson has felt the wrath of Black Lives Matter:
“Anyone care to explain to me the school-to-prison pipeline my colleagues and I have somehow created, or perpetuated, or not done enough to interrupt?” Olson wrote. “Because if you can’t prove it, the campaigns you’ve waged to deconstruct adult authority in my building by enabling student misconduct, you seriously owe us real teachers an apology.”
Complained Olson: “Since we now have no backup, no functional location to send kids who won’t quit gaming, setting up fights, selling drugs, whoring trains, or cyber bullying, we’re screwed, just designing our own classroom rules.”
For these nothing burgers, Black Lives Matter called Olson “a white supremacist” even though he had once marched with the group. Two days after Black Lives Matter met with the St. Paul school superintendent — and agreed to call off its protest — the 10-year veteran teacher was put on leave.
It’s racist to discipline. The supposed pipeline from school discipline to jail is not a pipeline at all. Schools provide the early evidence of societal disintegration.
Liberals are even saying youth under a certain age should not go to jail no matter what they do.
This is misguided liberal discipline where students are only taught sociopathy as they are pampered and being told they are entitled to behave badly.
