Winging along on the hypothesis that only white kids have the security of a stable home life and parental concern necessary to complete the homework assignments given to them in school, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) has declared homework to be “Racist,” and plan to force teachers to cap homework assignments at 10% of the student’s grade.
From my perspective this is nothing more than the city’s department of education attempting to create a way around their abject failure to effectively teach anything of merit to their students. The Los Angeles school system, like the educational systems throughout the state, has a well-deserved reputation for pathetic incompetence. Their ultra-liberal agenda has virtually paralyzed their ability to impart knowledge to the young students entrusted to them by the tax paying citizens and the teachers are required to spend the majority of their time pandering to the offspring of illegal aliens who cannot speak a word of English while the English speaking children succumb to boredom, and neither group finishes school with the ability to read or perform simple mathematical problems. With nearly half of the city’s high school students dropping out before graduation, the need to legitimize their incompetence is apparent.
Millions of educated, normal and productive adults managed to graduate from high schools around the country long before the current crop of liberal excuse makers took over this nation’s educational system and turned it into a monumental fiasco. What worked for them would work well for the children of today if it was given a chance and these mealy-mouthed teachers were held strictly accountable for the work they were hired to do.
As a native Californian, an American citizen and a tax-payer shackled to the outrageous debt growing exponentially as a result of the unfettered spending of my so-called elected representatives in both groups, I want to see more liberal teachers in the unemployment lines, not less. I want to see kids inundated with homework to the point where they have little time for anything else. I want to get something besides excuses for the millions of dollars spent on education. I want kids to learn, become brilliant, prosperous and filthy rich by creating new businesses and inventing gadgets that nobody ever dreamed of before. The key to prosperity for this nation is with our kids and we are not doing them any favors by coddling them when they’re young because nobody is going to coddle them when they are older.
As for the stupidity of California’s educators, read the article yourself and savor the depths of your own disgust.
