    I suppose this could go in either Race Relations or Education.



    I can't find a single thing in the above article that I disagree with.
    Particularly, I support expulsion of disruptive students. A single disruptive student in a classroom adversely affects the education of every other student in that class. Allowing that disruption is gross negligence and a disservice the children that want to learn.

    Edit to add link.

    This is something I've been saying for years. Naturally pointing out these verifiable truths is racisim, but I've said it nonetheless.

    It's the entitlement, the excuses the justification that has created this social pathology among blacks.

    Unfortunately, my OP violated the copyright rules and a mod had to take appropriate action and trim the article down. I want to re-post this portion, since it was the part I commented on.

    Student X goes to school everyday, pays attention in class, studies hard and asks challenging questions of the teacher. He/she is actively engaged in learning.

    Student Z goes to school everyday, disrupts the class, expresses violent and/or negative actions, doesn't participate. He/she is not interested in learning.

    Student Y is your child.

    Regardless of ethnicity, social-economic background and intelligence, which child (X or Z) do you want in the classroom with your child?

    In my opinion, the best student in the classroom cannot propel all the other students towards success on his/her level, but the disruptive student can hold back the rest of the classroom. Acquiescing to student Z does nothing to help student X and Y, but rather, it hinders their progress.

    The biggest problem in pubic schools is the inability to expel permanently the troublemaker kids.

    Would be cool to set up a separate school for them.

    A lot of communities do provide alternative public schools...not sure about their success rates for those students, but it's an improvement for the better behaved student population within the classroom.

    T. J. Lane (the shooter at Chardon High School) was previously charged with choking and punching another person and plead guilty to misdemeanor assault. He was allowed back in school and now kids are dead. Correlation doesn't prove causation, but sometimes you have to connect the dots and take action to prevent worse things from happening.

    Stop justifying their behavior. Stop making excuses.

    Bringing back a few workhouses wouldn't hurt either. Give them something to do rather than be assholes.
