Archives For better education

Here are some of my initial thoughts on the latest findings. Firstly the fact that the gap between boys and girls in reading is seen as secondary to the gap between boys and girls in math is very disconcerting. Secondly the reasoning for black boys not reading well appears to be being dismissed as systemic problems which is utter nonsense. These kids are not going to gain a love of reading simply because they are given books with black male protagonists. What they need are curriculums which are geared toward boys and not catering to the female students as has been the educational emphasis in the recent years. It seems people are content to let the male students fall through the cracks while they move their focus towards getting their female students scores up. And to make matters worse it appears that the education governmental bodies are more content to lower the standards for males students especially black male students rather than construct solutions.

This is probably the most asinine article I have come across in a very long time. This manifesto could not be anymore condescending if it tried. The author is essentially saying that if you don’t conform to the collective utilitarian agenda on public education you are a bad person. Don’t want your kids getting a poor education? You are a bad person. Don’t want to wait generations till public schools miraculously start working properly? Bad person. The author had the gall to even suggest that educational ignorance is adequate in navigating today’s world. I think this individual has clearly been so indoctrinated in the left’s religious fanatical belief in equality at all costs that she fails to realize the eventual harm this would have on society. Moreover she gives no clear indication for any public school reforms that would be taking place in the meantime while your kids are meant to be obtaining this sub par education for the greater good. Personally I attended private schools in middle and high school primarily due to the fact that the local public school would not offer an adequate education unless you were in their elite 1% of students. I am fortunate for my parents sacrificing time and money to give me a fighting chance rather than allow me to be stuck in the quagmire of public education. If anything this author’s reasoning is a prime example of why we need better education immediately because her reasoning is abysmal. I hope this is merely satire because if it isn’t its probably the worst regressive social engineering ideas ever recorded.
