Re: “Standing up for city schools

Now what?? Lets tell some truths. We must ask ourselves so concrete questions. Why are some schools in the city school district better then others? Why real true black history is not taught in public schools? Why the majority of teachers in predominantly black and brown urban schools are white, teaching black children? When we know that most of these white teachers live in the suburbs and/or rural areas, and have no idea of the culture and/or how to communicate with black or brown children. Why are teachers Pensions tied to private Prison Stock? This in itself speaks volumes for me, how about you? Why special needs children in the city school district, are not receiving what they need academically and/or the means to become productive citizens, when the city school district is receiving extra funding for this purpose? Yet, special needs students in the city school district, graduate without knowing how to read, count money, or how to fill out a job application, just to name a few. However, it not like that for children of the suburban school districts, they not only receive what they need in academic instruction, but also they attend a trade school. Where is the budget of $800 million dollars allocated to...??? These are just a few questions we as a community should be asking ourselves and getting answers to, if we are deadly serious about doing the right thing for our children, families and our community.
