    Here's what should be done if some feel minorities are insufficiently represented on their police forces: They should demand to know why the teachers unions are failing to educate their children so they can pass those tests and get those jobs, and what teachers are going to be fired to improve the quality of education for their children.
    not really........the test scores have been lowered for everyone. i sure don't want to live in dayton.

    I tend to disagree. much of the blame lies with the students and parents. sure there are some lousy teachers, but there are also good ones.

    I hate it when people always want to blame the teachers or the system and give the kids and their parent's a free pass.

    It can't be all coincidence that most of the kids who perform poorly attend schools located in areas where poverty, single parent homes, etc are also high. or are we expected to beleive that all the lousy teachers just happen to also congregate in these schools?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Answering the question is the best option.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yeah, really......"everyone" didn't need the test scores lowered. Apparently Holder felt black applicants needed an easier scale.

    Is there a better example of institutionalized racism out there?

    I hate how Democrats claim to be the champion for equal rights for minorities one minute, then insult them the next by basically calling them stupid and incapable.

    Schools should be about education...not social engineering. Teachers should teach. parents should parent. Kids should learn. Where parents fail in their responsibility they should be held responsible. And if their little darlings cant go to school and learn and be a part of the education process then their ass should be kicked out so as to stop contributing to the decay that is occuring in the public schools. That sounds harsh...too bad. People need to see education as a privelege to be earned, not as a means of someone else babysitting their little ****s for 8 hours a day.

    Education is not so much a privilege as it is a requirement for the country to exist. That's why people are so angry about the state of it.

    but they were lowered for everyone, the scale doesn't apply only to blacks, does it? now, you can argue, rightfully so, that it will benefit blacks, but it could also benefit whites or whomever. the real issue here is that we don't qualified people applying for leo jobs. why, i wonder? way to bring "democrats" into this......

    when you lower it for everyone, you are doing nobody a favor. I'd rather have more failures, than substandard folk of any color having my back.

    as a society, we have decided that a certain amount of education IS a right. if a student doesn't take advantage of that right, so be it. put them in alternative schools or whatever until our duty is done, at age 16.
