Earlier in the year we saw Jesse Jackson in Florida demanding school disciplinary punishments be levied based on race via racial quotas. Now the state board steps in and applies the same insufferable stupidity to acadamic expectations.
Their methodology is: Blacks are the least intelligent therefore blacks should have lower goals and expectations. Asians are the most intelligent therefore they should have a higher bar of achievement….
Typical Liberal Mindset – It is all based on race. The Benjamin Crumps, and Natalie Jacksons of the world should own this consequence. After all, it is their mindset that removes responsibility for self and instead places the blame on others. Just like this new education plan.
White Boy Can’t Jump – Black Boy Can’t Read. So lets lower the basketball hoop height on the white side, and lower the reading level on the black side. Nice huh?…. see how stupid that is.
Palm Beach, Fla. (CBS TAMPA) – The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race.
On Tuesday, the board passed a revised strategic plan that says that by 2018, it wants 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanics and 74 percent of black students to be reading at or above grade level. For math, the goals are 92 percent of Asian kids to be proficient, whites at 86 percent, Hispanics at 80 percent and blacks at 74 percent. It also measures by other groupings, such as poverty and disabilities, reported the Palm Beach Post.
The plan has infuriated many community activists in Palm Beach County and across the state.

JFK Middle has a black student population of about 88 percent. (read more)
