Skip to comments.Nice White Parentsí Responsible for Failing Public Schools, New York Times Says
Posted on 08/29/2020 4:18:40 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
Why does the public education system continue to fail Americas children? Policy experts have pondered this question for decades.
Most say the answer is complicated, requiring a nuanced, collaborative approach.
But not The New York Times. It found the problem, and its simple: white parents.
The solution? Try, whenever possible, to suppress the power of white parents.
That quote comes from the Times podcast Nice White Parents, which chronicles the history of a single public school in New York. Specifically, the host, Chana Joffe-Walt, decides to look into the racial history of this school.
Her first finding: Many parents who advocated for the integration of public schools, specifically this public school, did not end up enrolling their children. Instead, they chose to send their children to established schools with a history of success. This choicemade predominantly by white familiesis why the school has struggled, Joffe-Walt says.
She contacts several of these parents to scold them for not sending their children to a worse school to serve the larger cause of public education. Some parents note that although they believed in advancing school integration, they perceived this particular school to struggle academically, noting that many students could not read at grade level.
Joffe-Walt chalks up these criticisms to racism, rather than a genuine observation that the school would be a step backward academically for a student functioning at grade level.
Does she offer concrete policy solutions to fix the underlying academic issues plaguing the school? Of course not. Instead, she perpetuates the myth that parents choosing to exit the public school system leads to underfunded schools.

So your are racist for not sending your child to a failing school. The idiocy and the despicable arrogant evil that exists will be dealt with eventually, it starts with school choice
Nice White Parents = Karens
No matter how much money you throw at a school, its success depends mostly on the quality of students they accept. Even great teachers are rendered useless if they have a roomful of ignorant thugs and an administration that refuses to discipline them.
parents choosing to exit the public school system leads to underfunded schools.
Thats bs...you pay your taxes whether you use the school or not.
So what the Author is saying is that People of Color can’t teach - and Students of Color can’t learn. Unless, of course, there are White people there to help them.
Forever on the D Plantation.
The people who didnt go to the school, but paid taxes that support it are
responsible for its failure.
I guess thats what she means by nuanced.
“Her first finding: Many parents who advocated for the integration of public schools, specifically this public school, did not end up enrolling their children.

She’d better check the political leanings and re-think because the narrative is slipping with this “finding”.
This is the way of all communists
Instead of advocating for charter schools or school choice ($$$ follows student) she whines
And if course, they still get the taxes from those who use private school or homeschool, which in effect means they should have a surplus!
Society is responsible for our schools’ conditions, as we are responsible for our governments’ conditions.
Elections have outcomes. Apathy has outcomes. Ignorance has outcomes.
White dems see blacks as retarded and in need of white saviors...Black dems see it the same way
We have to have white kids in the schools..NO body ever asks why?????
But the schools only get the funding as students attend. If a student attends another school, that’s where the funding goes.
But good students don’t go to these places because hey are infiltrated with bad teachers who only keep their jobs because of unions.
Haven't public schools been integrated as a matter of law (not parental advocacy) for 60 years?
MORE THAN 60 years ago, my parents extracted me from public school and handed me - unwillingly - over to the Catholic nuns because public school was demonstrably ineffective even then. I can't begin to imagine how many lives were saved by Catholic schools -- until most parents who could do so fled to suburbia.
No mention of the role of teachers' unions and the diminished expectations of Black privilege that see public schools graduates who don't understand math, science or how to effectively communicate in English? Why wouldn't Black parents want to "send their children to established schools with a history of success" if the teachers' unions allowed them to do so?
So the white kids will be as uneducated and feral as the black kids.
Next, abolish all private schools and all home schooling.
No one escapes. Civilization disappears. Mission accomplished.
And the people with no children, and the people whose children are grown up ...
They have all the money.
