    Things like this keep racism alive

    http://denver.cbslocal.com/video?aut...clipId=8375706


    Now, if youre going to say this isnt racist, please elaborate. This Principal is a total douche. Way to be an example to ALL of the kids.
    I swear, bad teachers and prinipcals are more dangerous to kids than a million AR-15's


    Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life

    All I saw with that link was a weather forecast. I really don't think snow is racist just because it happens to be white....

    They must have moved the clip...was the story about a Denver principal that started a tutoring program, but it was only available to black or latino children. Whites couldnt participate. The parents were in an uproar, the Principal was unapologetic, but the school board was embarrased by his actions. I'll try to find a new link shortly

    According to KCNC-TV (http://tinyurl.com/ao7bbbh), the new tutoring program was started by parents of minority students to help bridge an achievement gap.


    What is causing this achievement gap?

    Parents setting up a tutoring program to tutor their own children? Assuming these parents are also fulfilling their parental roles in mandating the completion of homework, and helping with that homework, I commend their efforts. Children can generally rise to the expectations parents set for them.



    http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...llege-all-male

    Urban Prep, a charter school that enrolls using a lottery in one of the city's more troubled neighborhoods

    Only 4 percent of this year's senior class read at grade level as freshmen

    "Every single person we hired knew from the day one that this is what we do: We get our kids into college." (High expectations)

    The school offers an extended day--170,000 more minutes over four years compared to its counterparts across the city--and more than double the number of English credits usually needed to graduate.

    The entire senior class at Chicago's only public all-male, all-African-American high school has been accepted to four-year colleges.
    ďIím somewhat disappointed that more African Americans donít think for themselves and just go with whatever theyíre supposed to say and think."

    Look, all I'm saying is that the only time you hear anything about black ice is when people die from driving on it. That's messed up.
