In addition, poor children are more likely to have emotional and mental health issues including PTSD, be poorly nourished, and did not get quality preschool or learning at home. The result is crowded, segregated classrooms filled with too many kids with behavioral issues and learning disabilities and an inexperienced or incompetent teacher trying to teach them with little parental assistance.
    From what I've seen, the political party that most blacks vote for are largely opposed to one of the things which would help their children get into better schools: vouchers. It doesn't look to me like their preferred party is really too concerned about the education of blacks as a group. In fact, a great improvement in their educational status may be a net loss to democrats, as a good number of well-educated, and more intellectual blacks seem to be inclined toward voting for republicans.

    What you painted was a racist picture. I'm black and I know for a fact that not all blacks live like that. I never, ever lived in such a situation. Why didn't you show that side of the story. No, you simply wanted to paint a racist picture so you could wipe your stinking butt.

    So in essence your saying they need more white teachers.

    It appears to me that they mostly need parents who are more involved in their children's education, and who push and demand that their children excel.

    I painted nothing I showed you raw footage of black ghettos that were destroyed by its own community. Selling crack, gang banging, robbing, raping, burning down businesses. People are too scared to even open businesses there. Not because they are racist but because they are scared for their lives.

    No that is what you are saying and it is very racist. Both of my parents were teachers. They were very, very good teachers. Not only that, but many of their very good friends were good black teachers. In fact my mother handpicked her friends to teach me, at least through elementary school. And another fact, that I know is the truth because my father was in school administration. When they started integrating schools in the south, they took the good blacks teachers from the black schools and sent them to the white schools. They took the sorry white teachers from the white schools and sent them to the black schools. That is a fact. I know because both my mother and father and their friends were very, very pissed off about it.

    If they are good teachers, then why are these schools failing? You keep saying they need better teachers.
