Destroying Schools to Achieve Racial Justice

American Thinker

By Robert Weissberg

I've long suspected that the federal  government is consciously subverting American education. Deep inside the  Department of Education, there must exist a top-secret Bureau of  Educational Disasters (BED) whose mission is to concoct alluring but  guaranteed-to-fail, academic achievement-killing policies whose sole  benefits are more jobs and mindless paperwork. These would be the folks  who recently bribed states to retain academically troublesome students  whose behavior hindered decent students so as to make America "better  educated," i.e., a nation of high school "graduates" barely able to read  their diplomas.   

Well, like all industrious Washington  bureaucrats, BED, with Department of Justice support, soldiers onward.  Their latest education-destroying innovation is eliminating the  disproportionate suspension and expulsions of African-American students.  This is not empty rhetoric; it is included in the Obama  administration's $4.3-billion Race to the Top initiative, and schools  that fail to mend their ways will lose federal funds and face expensive  litigation at a time of shrinking education budgets. In fact, the future  is already here, as schools are increasingly being targeted in  resource-draining civil rights complains about disciplinary unevenness (see here).
