Racial divide: Minority students face more discipline, data reveals
MSNBC ^ | 3/6/2012 | MSNBC Staff

Posted on 03/06/2012 1:08:55 AM PST by South40

Black and Latino students across the United States are far more likely to be suspended than white students - and far less likely to have access to rigorous college-prep courses, according to a sweeping study released on Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights.

The trove of data, collected from 72,000 schools serving 85 percent of the nation's students, revealed tremendous disparities in the public school experiences of minority and white students.

Minority students face more discipline

That's because they are less disciplined coming into the schools. I imagine there is not a lot of self-discipline, therefore, someone needs to teach them. If they and their race-pimp politicians don't like it, they are going to have to live with the consequences.

They must stop disciplining those poor little minority children!

And, if they don't have the self-discipline mention in my previous post, they won't stand a chance of passing those rigorous courses even if they did take them.

Insufficient data... You can’t keep banging the minority drum without specifics. For what abusive actions, for how long, etc. I’d bet that they only looked at specific targets to make their statements. That is always the way it happens. I’d also bet that minorities were the most egregious instigators also - not that you would know here...

I see that they neglected to report on the nature of the offenses that got the students expelled. That wouldn't have anything to do with it, right?

Just think, without a DOE, this sweeping study might not have been hatched. I suggest that the DOE is in the business of self justification.

Reminds me of the race-hustlers' argument about black murderers being more likely to get the death penalty, than white murderers.

While they might be right with the raw statistics, they neglected to consider the underlying crimes.

Iirc a closer look at this phenomenon revealed that murders committed by whites were more likely to be crimes of passion, which are not usually death penalty eligible crimes. Murders committed by blacks were more likely to be cold-blooded stranger murders, i.e. death penalty eligible crimes.

With these new stats about school suspensions, you can't know what's going on unless you break down the categories of suspensions. Was the kid suspended because he acted like a jerk? Or because he brought a knife to school?

Are you aware of the fact that the FBI does not separate Hispanics from Europeans in crime statistics. They cover both as white, so when a black gang banger and a Hispanic gangster hurt each other it comes out as a white on black crime.

You’re 100% correct. It may be a poorly written article but it seems the study focused solely on the results and not the causes. It makes sense to a person like Duncan to argue his case from that viewpoint.

“Insufficient data...”

You’re right; my children go to school with a bunch of minorities that are never disciplined (they get it at home - Indians, Orientals, Arabs). The only people getting disciplined are unruly whites (and rightly so).

It is impossible to obtain an education where a large number of “other minorities” are in the classroom - they are the worst environments filled with distractions as the hopeless pass time.

The Black Mafia, the Democrats, and the Liberal Media must be colluding on "victim" stories this week:

What BS! It is true, however, speaking as one who currently works in a high school, the reason is that they commit a disparate number of offenses. Also, the reason for that is the nature of discipline taught in their family units and cultural behavior that mirrors school behavior...

Well, according to the FBIs Uniform Crime Reports, black males, who comprise less than 6 percent of the population, committed over 50 percent of the murders in the USA from 1976 to 2005.

So it is not surprising that this same demographic is suspended from school more often than other less crime prone demographics.

What is revealing about this article, is that it is reported by the Corrupt Liberal Media without any perspectives other than white racism must be the cause of these suspensions and school disciplinings.

The operative word in the “Corrupt Liberal Media” is “corrupt”

“Racial divide: Minority students face more discipline, data reveals”

Using the same bogus “logic” this header could be just as accurately written:

“Gender divide: Male students face more discipline, data reveals”

or

“Gender divide: Males incarcerated more often than females”

Just another attempt of the Corrupt Liberal Media to inject their racist agenda into their “reporting”

Liberalism has killed journalism,

Aren’t college prep courses available to anyone who has the grades to take them. They are here.

Next thing you know having an education will be an act of discrimination.
