Washington state is considering a plan that would give priority to minority and disadvantaged students when schools reopen in the fall following months of closure during the coronavirus pandemic. Like most state chief executives across the country, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee shuttered his state's public schools earlier in the year as part of a coronavirus mitigation plan. States have lately begun considering how they will re-open their schools in the fall, if at all. Education officials across the country have proposed various plans incorporating alternating schedules, "cohorting" of students, and distance learning programs, while others have suggested the entire upcoming school year may consist entirely of virtual classrooms.

Comments:

OK with me if Inslee want to send in minority kids first. We will find out which schools have the highest infection rate. When they're safe again, the privileged white kids can go back to school safely

Hadn’t thought of it from POV of OP and #1, but wonder if it will strike those segments of our society that their kids are to be the canaries sent into the mines? I was thinking that the best and brightest were being held back. But they may be better off learning on their own at home.

The Left is looking to provoke a Race War. And by 'Race War' I mean violence between any disparate group of People to cause, or excuse violence that then causes the majority to turn to them for protection and Security. Nazis did this with the Jews. KKK did this with Blacks. The French did this with the Huguenauts... It's an old strategy of people who imagine themselves to b Elite, and their victims uninformed and malleable peasants. They do this by little degrees, trying to cause greater and greater divisions between us, confident on their ability to place the blame... The question is, will we let them succeed?

The teachers in my state are rebelling at going back to their jobs, claiming they could catch Wuhan virus from the kids. My wife suggested that the governor should terminate the teachers' receiving full salaries as gov't employees until they actually return to work, so they can see how the rest of us have had to make do. Teachers will be more anxious to return to work if they are no longer paid a full salary while sitting at home doodling with little online exercises and "I miss you" texts and emails to their students.

So sad to see beautiful Washington State turn it's back on God's assurance of human equality, which is reflected in the U.S. Constitution which acknowledges and secures everyone's God given inherent equal Rights as human beings. Washington State is being severely damaged by the socialist tyrannical policies being adopted by dem pols in total opposition to America's freedoms.

The black kids sit in the same rooms as the others. They choose not to participate in their own education. Most of them are sent to school by their parent(s) for the free breakfast and free lunch. What makes them think they will suddently become brilliant and care about school. Yeah, good luck with that. I will say it again: You cannot live your life like a future contestant on Maury Povich and think you will have a good life.

The State of Washington may be faced with hate crimes against minorities for requiring their children to return to school ahead of white kids. LOL I am so over the race discussion -- because whites aren't allowed to discuss race without being accused of being racists. If others want me to see their point of view, I want to be treated with respect. I don't want my language to be regulated. Isn't that what we all want for ourselves? I'm happy to talk with respectful people -- and there are many -- probably most! -- among minorities who are respectful to all folks, regardless of color. But I won't talk to ideological thugs, many of whom have become physical thugs perpetrating physical violence and mayhem.

If I were a classroom teacher in Washington, I'd be furious with this. The three bozos who compiled the so-called "planning guide" have put together a great progressive document that insults just about every teacher in the state and every non-white student in the state. If there is the problem these political hacks claim there is, why has the state waited until now to address it?

Shaky Detroit police body camera video shows eight shots were fired in five frenzied seconds Friday during a fatal incident on the city's northwest side that sparked protests in which bottles, bricks and other projectiles were thrown at officers. Detroit police released the body camera video, along with another video from a squad car's dashboard camera which showed officers fatally shooting 20-year-old Hakim Littleton after he pulled a pistol from his left pocket and opened fire. Detroit police chief James Craig said he released the video hours after the incident to quell "a false narrative" that the shooting was unjustified.

Atlanta-based company Home Depot is temporarily changing the way it sells rope. The company says the changes are coming after nooses were found inside several stores.The nooses were first spotted about a year ago, but sightings have increased in recent weeks. Unfortunately, we’ve had some instances where spooled rope was used to create hate symbols and we’re not going to tolerate it," a Home Depot spokesperson told FOX Business. "Out of an abundance of caution, we temporarily removed spooled rope from our aisles."Home Depot is now removing the giant spools of rope used to make the nooses and will only sell rope in pre-cut lengths at this time.

Circuit Court of Appeals to review a 2-1 decision a panel of that court issued last month, directing Sullivan to cancel his plans for a hearing and instead grant the government’s request to drop the case.
