White Privilege is the latest dog whistle for Progressives and educators. But I repeat myself. The goal of Progressivism is to destroy civil, white, society and replace it with chaos.
You think we’re kidding, right?
Here’s what happened in St. Paul, Minnesota.
In 2010 the school district – one of hundreds around the country – contracted with a San Francisco based firm – Pacific Educational Group – that works with public schools to purportedly help them deal with achievement and disciplinary issues. They focus on black students. We’ll let you figure out why they focus on black students, it would be racist of us to just tell you.
They don’t come cheap, and the dollar cost of their help is barely the tip of the iceberg.
It claims that the American education system is built around white culture, tradition and social norms – aka “white privilege” – to the unfair detriment of black students.
PEG believes that black students will only achieve if school curricula are customized to meet their cultural specifications. It also rejects the concept of using suspensions or expulsions to discipline black students.
Over the past five years the St. Paul school district has spent about $1.8 million on PEG’s help. That doesn’t include what the school district calls “matched amounts” of about $1 million. They’ve never publicly defined what “matched amounts” means.
So nearly three million dollars over five years to help black students. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy doesn’t it. Here’s the progress that’s been made in St. Paul with the help of PEG.
Special needs students with behavioral issues were mainstreamed into regular classrooms, a position openly advocated by PEG.
Student suspensions were replaced by “time outs,” and school officials starting forgiving or ignoring violence and other unacceptable behavior, according to various sources.
And the result? Thousands of black under-achievers have been put on the road to college and a successful life. They’ve been accepted by their formerly racist white students and overall achievement is up in St. Paul schools.
Oops. Don’t drink when writing. Actually, it looks more like this.
The result has been general chaos throughout the district, with far too many students out of control because they know there are no real consequences for their actions.
As we noted at the beginning, “The goal of Progressivism is to destroy civil, white, society and replace it with chaos,” and to quote our dad, “Whoda thunk it!” Here’s one teacher’s story. You can bet just about every teacher in St. Paul has a story like this.
A local publication called CityPages recently told the story of Becky McQueen, an educator at St. Paul’s Harding High School.
“Last spring, when she stepped into a fight between two basketball players, one grabbed her shoulder and head, throwing her aside,” the CityPages article explained. “The kid was only sent home for a couple of days.
“In March, when a student barged into her class, McQueen happened to be standing in the doorway and got crushed into a shelf. The following week, two boys came storming in, hit a girl in the head, then skipped back out. One of them had already been written up more than 30 times.
“Yet another student who repeatedly drops into her class has hit kids and cursed at an aide, once telling McQueen he would “fry” her ass. She tried to make a joke of it — ‘Ooh, I could use a little weight loss.’ Her students interjected: ‘No, that means he’s gonna kill you.’”
McQueen now has her students use a secret knock on the classroom door, so she will know who to allow in, the article said.
And now, the rest of the story.
The number of St. Paul school children attending non-district schools has jumped by almost 35% to 12,000 students. “White flight” right? Actually, no. Two-thirds of those are low income, black students.
Educators are curse of American schools. They are much more dangerous to the nation than ISIS.
