Now that the political aspect of this "particular version" has been settled, parents of children in the RCSD (especially black parents) must strengthen their efforts in sending their children to school prepared to be students. There is no magic pill and no political appointment is going to fix the mess. The vital missing elements are parent engagement (extended family members included) and authentic community leadership.
Nothing changes until the cultural crisis is redressed and parents and so-called black community leaders are held accountable for allowing failure to be a normality in the so-called black community.
Poverty Pimps Paradise! Magnification of decades of black leadership failure...
Much easier to be a politician than a community leader. Politicians manage words on paper. Community leaders aspires to change the hearts and minds of the people.
This virus has been allowed to fester for years in this city. Nothing new here, just more rhetoric, political posturing, and egocentric foolishness. The response by the RCSD officials are political and bares no solutions. Vargas, Evans, and White are a part of the problem.
The behavior in question is a snapshot of a bigger picture that most blacks in Rochester refuse to address. It's a "cultural crisis" a crisis of views and values. Many RCSD teachers frequently witness chaotic behaviors between predominately black students and reserve comment for fear of being labeled a "racist". Hundreds of black students are allowed to roam the halls of various RCSD school buildings throughout the school day using the most vulgar language and displaying thuggish behaviors without adequate intervention. The RCSD and the so-called black community is a sinking ship that refuses to do what is needed to save itself from itself.
The mayor should call a press conference and call out the so-called black community.
It's a community issue (home, community, then all else), a "cultural crisis". As an African American grassroots leadership advocate, I am dishearten, disgusted and embarrassed over the so-called black community inability to manage its future.
