My co-worker and I are educators and we had this conversation recently that there are differences between black schools and white schools.

We believe that the differences lie between how we discipline kids, how parents would perceive us as educators, how we educate the children, and the type of funding receive from the schools vary greatly.

We also believe that the value of education from both schools on opposite sides of the spectrum.

I'm not sure what your point is but I can state as a fact that here in NJ predominantly black schools in inner city areas receive substantially more funding per pupil than predominantly white suburban schools. The sad part is that the predominantly black schools are still failing, and miserably so. I leave it to the experts to determine the causes, but the facts themselves are indisputable.

How sad, if it is true, that we still have "white schools" and "Black schools."

Watch "corridor of shame" about poor poor schools on the I95 corridor in SC. It is hard to believe this is in our USA.

re OP
dear educator,
your last sentence-- the subject "value of education" has no verb nor direct object, which is why some are struggling with your point.

It is either a matter of geographical location and the associated demographics or the desire by blacks to have their own schools. Blacks cry for equality yet still want black only schools and black only scholarships and grants, yet would cry foul if any white proclaimed a school to be white only or a scholarship as white only.
