Florida sets education standards based on race, ethnicity | The Daily Caller

Let me guess blacks will have the lowest standards, and asians will be expected to achieve the highest. What the hell are they doing in florida. How about they try to achieve 100% for all the kids.

They tried that with NCLB for 10+ years. Blacks still fell behind.

If you got a better idea, i'm pretty sure they would be happy to hear it.

Of course. IF they did it based on the content of the character like MLK dreamed about then most blacks would fail.

Dems wonder why education is going down the toilet.

And this type of thing just hurts the kids regardless of race in the long run. I think it's the same mentality of "everyone's a winner, there are no losers" sure there is, if you fail a class then you need to step it up not have the standards lowered so you can pass.

True but the Dems do not care. They are more interested in buying black votes. At the end of the day the blacks will be less educated.

How is this different from quietly(or not so quietly) tacking on extra points when it comes to qualifying for admission to colleges or jobs after graduation?

Isn't this basically just front-loading the 'affirmative action' - instead of applying the alternate standards at the end.

(For the record, I don't believe this helps any of the students other than Asians. I mean in the end, which students will come out of this system learning the most, being the most qualified, and scoring the highest?

It would be really interesting if parents could opt their kids into higher tiers.)

You are correct , and I might owe another forum member an apology. They were basically relating the fact that the Gov't is holding the black race back (totally unrelated topic other than Gov't and race) and I did not agree. Well after reading this in a way the Gov't is hurting the black race and any others that are effected.

Hey folks..at least NCLB held everyone to that same low bar.
This is RTT..the "new and improved" takeover for NCLB. And guess what..RTT has no details; they left that up to each state about setting the bar.

IMO RTT is worse than NCLB in the quest for qualifying for Fed education money.
