Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 5/28/2021 2:39:13 PM

This week, the Baltimore City Public Schools, attempting to avoid holding students back who have poor grades, announced a new grading policy that would enable students who failed one class to still proceed to the next grade.The school district said it was taking the new approach because of effects caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Chief Academic Officer Joan Dabrowski said the new approach is meant to “avoid the punitive approach of failing students,” according to CNN.“This is not about a failure, but it is about unfinished learning and giving multiple opportunities, multiple onramps for young people to complete that … learning,” Baltimore City Public Schools CEO Sonja Santelises added.

Now there's a worthwhile public school goal - no more eighteen-year-old 8th graders. They probably were embarrassed by seniors being the same age as the teachers.

"Failing" isn't actually's just ....not learning a damned thing, and why would that prevent you from moving to the next grade level? /s off They are assisting in destroying the next generation, ensuring that they'll be useless drones without a clue.

Uh, this has been the fact in southern states since the '60's. Not only can they not fail kids, if a parent requests a child be held back for the benefit of the child, schools were not allowed to do that. Guaranteed to create numbskulls who vote democrat.

This nothing new. It’s been going on for years in schools across the country. It’s why we have high school graduates who are functionally illiterate. Partly because a lot of parents don’t care about their kids’ grades neither do a lot teachers. Easier to pass them on through the system.

It doesn't matter. Really, it doesn't. In one generation this city will completely collapse under its inability to do literally anything. Non-blacks aren't going to bail them out, either. And this city is not quality workforce within the city. A dwindling populaltion of aging white folks replaced by urban black dependents, soon to be without a sugar daddy as things collapse around their necks, tax revenues decrease and the surrounding suburbs start to fight off the Democrat attempts to raid "the rich". And they'll blame their problems on...RACISM!

Why worry about grade and passing high school when the government will take care of them once they graduate as illiterate adults. Once the baby mammas start getting their monthly child tax credit checks for their multiple children, get their Medicaid, food stamps, and subsidized housing; they will be set. They will probably get additional stimulus checks to help out too. The baby daddy's will just live off their women and emulate their role models like George Floyd. Sure they won't be able to read, do math, write; but that won't be their fault. Nope. White Supremacists did it to them over years of suppression. They couldn't act too white and do well in school or get jobs. They need to "show the man" that he can't keep them down and disrespect them. Baltimore schools are just perpetuating the Black oppression and suppressing any chance that blacks of climbing out of the hole that hey have created.

In the old sitcom "The Jefferson's", they dreamed of movin on up, to the East Side to a Deluxe Apartment in the Sky..... Today, in Baltimore, the kids get to be movin on up for just living through the year in school. In the Jefferson's, they got to move on up through hard work to a better life. George and his wife did not let their race get in the way of being successful. Baltimore schools on the other hand, seems to use race as an excuse for poor performance and actually makes excuses for the continued failures of their school system to educate their mostly black student population year after year after year. They are creating a permanent uneducated black underclass. Baltimore schools seems content for students to be movin on up, but without the hard work or the success that will come with it for the students. They are just moving on up to different run down Public Housing, not the Deluxe Apartment in the Sky.

It is my opinion that a crime, (poor to no education) has been committed by schools, school boards, elected "officials" and above all the democrats. They have purposely kept school children, mostly black children, from receiving competent schooling. My son was in a middle school, along with 20 year old moustached boys. With girls who were pregnant and showing a soon delivery date. The students could not read or do math properly. I took my son out of that school and enrolled him in a private school. Parents whose children are struggling should have the right to a proper education. A worthwhile time in school. Have full confidence in themselves. I don't know if this ripped off "education program/plan" for our children is still around. Every child deserves an education. I'ts a God given right. This is discrimination of the worst kind. And...parents should keep after the school boards, teachers and political donkies. How would a 19 year old girl/boy going to school, a middle school, with 12 and 13 year old kids. I'd say they felt humiliated. NO self-worth.

Here's a suggestion. Once AOC is successful in getting rid of all of the cows in the country, these uneducated imbeciles can become the new cattle. They obviously can't give milk so they will become beef cattle. Voila! Soylent Green.

Why even bother? Give them the paper, send them out on the streets. They don't want to be there and probably would be shot within two years or less anyway. Teachers would be happy to teach only the ones who want an education (if there are any?)

This has been going on for years. It's standard operating procedure in Baltimore. Recently, the news media focused on one kid slated to graduate from high school, and discovered he not only didn't pass any class since ninth grade, he hasn't attended any class since then either. Now as ridiculous as that sounds, his mother stated she didn't know it either.

We live in anxious times. But many times in our past were far more anxious, and the reasons for anxiety then were more compelling. Consider, for example, the situation facing the world in the early months of 1941, when Hitler’s triumphant armies controlled continental Europe, when only the British Isles managed to hold out and when the future of liberty looked very dim. Yet at that moment, the novelist John Dos Passos wrote: “In times of change and danger when there is a quicksand of fear under men’s reasoning, a sense of continuity with generations gone before can stretch like a lifeline across the scary present.”
