Unequal Science

If they can't raise the standard ............
Berkeley High School is considering a controversial proposal to eliminate science labs and the five science teachers who teach them to free up more resources to help struggling students.

The proposal to put the science-lab cuts on the table was approved recently by Berkeley High's School Governance Council, a body of teachers, parents, and students who oversee a plan to change the structure of the high school to address Berkeley's dismal racial achievement gap, where white students are doing far better than the state average while black and Latino students are doing worse.

Paul Gibson, an alternate parent representative on the School Governance Council, said that information presented at council meetings suggests that the science labs were largely classes for white students. He said the decision to consider cutting the labs in order to redirect resources to underperforming students was virtually unanimous.

...The full plan to close the racial achievement gap by altering the structure of the high school is known as the High School Redesign.

A typical communist subversive ploy, bring down the standard of education by using multiculturalism forcing the replace of subjects such as maths and science with subject such as arts and culture and sports, which are of no value to the sustainability of a nation.
Google "Yuri Bezmenov" or "Tomas Schuman"

" labs were largely classes for white students." I'd bet a fortune that no black or brown student with the proper prerequisites was denied entry into these classes. This shows such profound ignorance it is just difficult to express.

On this basis, funding should be cut for all sports programs, because they are primarily for jocks. Funding should be cut for cut for the minority programs because they are for the ignorant. We just keep on following this chain of logic to the end, and conclude that funding should be cut for public eductation. That is an idea I could support wholeheartedly because it has become nothing more than an indoctrination program. Then we can go back to for-profit schools where parents pay to have their children receive a real education, or parents don't pay, and the children remain as ignorant as their parents. Hopenchange!

They should reduce the number of ethnics and hence reduce the under-achievers. That will free up resources for lab work.

Britain needs scientists. Not black acatvists.

The world will need an incredible number of intelligent,educated people just to manage the infrastructure. The destruction of the white race lowers the number of competitors and makes the more attractive races more vulnerable to exploitation. Remember no other race has outlawed slavery,child labor, and the other evils that the dark world feels is normal.

These people suffer from a reality deficit, or what ever they call it, lets just say that they lack common sense. They believe that we are all equal and there fore should resemble each other in achievement. I will never be the equal of Einstein when it comes to science but I could certainly beat him when it comes to drawing cartoons. The essential point is that we should be treated equally to be unequal to realize our full potential. It should not be the other way round where you are treated unequally to be forced to become equal. This lunacy is faith based, and no amount of reality or facts are going to make one bit of difference. It is impossible to make a silk purse out of a pigs ear, fact. When I see a pigs ear I see a pigs ear, they see a silk purse embroidered by there Utopian, fantasy.

Yorkshireminer said, "This lunacy is faith based, and no amount of reality or facts are going to make one bit of difference."

This statement is true in so far as it goes, but it is easily misinterpreted. The lunacy is based on faith in man, not faith in God.

In God's creation, everything is in a very definite order. Mankind is placed over nature in the role of steward. Man is placed over woman in the role of husband. The Church is placed over the people to shepherd them in their journey toward God. The planets are held in their orbits by their primary stars. Every aspect of God's creation is based on order. It is only foolish man that has imagined "radical equality" that destroys order and leads to chaos. God did not create us all to live "equal" lives here on earth. He will deal with those inequities in the next life. It is for us to live the life here assigned to us, according to the directions that He has given us.
