US school proposes lesser punishment depending on race

It had to happen, the happy kumbaya culmination of 50 years of leftwing battering down of morals and values in Western society. We've come full circle, passed the starting point to where darker races are now favoured just so the data reflects “no ethnic/racial disparities." Yessiree, ignore the facts, fiddle the stats, lower the standards for some and the world is a happy hippy place again. I guess they ought to consider throwing in a few Asian kids just so they can balance out the figures.

Tucson schools create race-based system of discipline

By Doug MacEachern (The Arizona Republic)

…The board is calling for a two-tiered form of student discipline. One for Black and Hispanic students; one for everyone else.

With the goal of creating a “restorative school culture and climate” that conveys a “sense of belonging to all students,” the board is insisting that its schools reduce its suspensions and/or expulsions of minority students to the point that the data reflect “no ethnic/racial disparities.”

From the section of the 52-page plan titled “Restorative School Culture and Climate,” subhead, “Discipline”:

“School data that show disparities in suspension/expulsion rates will be examined in detail for root causes. Special attention will be dedicated to data regarding African-American and Hispanic students.”

The board approved creating an “Equity Team” that will oversee the plan to ensure “a commitment to social justice for all students.”

The happy-face edu-speak notwithstanding, what the Tucson Unified School District board of governors has approved this summer is a race-based system of
discipline.

Offenses by students will be judged, and penalties meted out, depending on the student’s hue.

I thought Arizona was a Redneck State. Some idiot from their Education Department must have come for a visit to South Africa, where things are done the right way, or is that the left way. Either way "Spare the rod and Spoil the Child" has long been forgotten in the Liberated times we live in today. Six of the best was the only way to treat bad behaviour at school or at home, I know, I speak of experience at school.
