Virginia School District Targets Inequity
by Shooting at Grades and Deadlines

Original Article

Posted By: AmericaFirstAlways, 12/31/2021 9:06:24 AM

For those currently in school who’ve been oppressed by the evils of conditions, rejoice: You may soon receive unconditional love. At least that’s the case if your classroom’s in Arlington, Virginia. Arlington Public Schools (APS) seems sick of differences in the world, so it’s decided to attain supreme sameness. Since pupils will meet objective standards to varying degrees, standards should be shrugged off. Unless I misunderstand, if we pretend everyone’s alike, then they magically are. The district’s proposed a four-point fundamental overhaul in the name of that greatest of goods, equity.

Comments:

For the left, "equity" means everyone is equal in their poor performance.

Why have a "school" and "teachers" at all? Get the kids together at 8 am in a playground, let them mill around like cows til 2:30, send em home. That's equity. No pressure, no expectations, no achievement, kinda like the ghetto.

Unfortunately in Oregon, we have a governor who shows her own hatred of struggling kids by condemning them to permanent poverty instead of maybe going hardcase on the teachers who aren't teaching them. Getting rid of failing grades removes the proof for parents that teachers just are not doing their jobs. It also insults the kids who are making better grades by devaluing those better grades.

Punishing hard work, skill, and merit satisfies two major goals of the Left: 1. Promotion of blacks and Hispanics over evil Jews, other whites, and Asians. 2. Creation of the “Marxist New Man” by re-education of children to reject and despise individual accomplishments.

This is not going to help black kids. They won't even be able to do simple math and won't be able to make sense when they talk, much less write a decent letter or even a cogent text. There is always welfare, and maybe that's the plan. Make people so stupid that they will always have to live on the government plantation.

"Equity" means equal failure with no means to succeed in individual goals and talents. What society can survive this insanity. You can be sure that those in control will succeed in running your life. Who wants that for themselves or their children?

Nothing says equality quite like dragging everyone down to the lowest common denominator. Why don't they just say we are such pathetic freaking failures we can't raise students up so we will make them all equal to the worst among them, we don't have to work, they don't have to work, no one is better than anyone else, and everyone is happy.

For a laugh see today’s NY Post .There is a copy of the letter the President ! of Arlington’s teacher’s union wrote recently . She is demanding more closures and “safety “ procedures for the members & the students of Arlington. The letter is incoherent and littered with grammatical errors .One parent corrected it’s punctuational and grammatical errors & sent it back to the “president “ grades as a student’s essay . Prezzy , by her demands , obviously wants more folks joining her on the bottom row of academic achievements

The whole purpose is to move all students to the democratic plantation where they will be totally dependent on the government for survival. This is done because democrats are the party of slavery. And, just like the old plantations of the south, slaves were never taught how to read, write or do math. Why, keep'em dumb and you keep their vote. You see, if you're an illiterate democrat you have sold the souls of your children to your communist party. Get it morons.

And this is why I do support teachers' unions and have little respect for today's teachers. Used to be, teachers did their best to raise their students to the level of the goalposts. Nowadays, teachers move the goalposts down to the level of the students. Which one of these actually TEACHES the students?

The only standards that matter to them are the standards they set for being cancelled or not. If their ideology of equity above everything were self-consistent, they would either have a rigorous gauntlet for students to achieve passing grades, or give everybody and everything a passing grade, no matter what they think, say, or do in life. Or, just perhaps, have a person's status in everything be proportional to their relative merit and manifest results.

There’s a story that hasn’t been getting a lot of the network news yet, and it may not — because it involves allegedly armed leftists and an armed homeowner. The leftists had gathered in Portland, Oregon at Normandale Park on Saturday night to march against the police shooting of Amir Locke that happened in Minneapolis on Feb. 4. A homeowner confronted members of the group at the park. A witness said that there was a lot of arguing between the homeowner and the group. Another report said that the homeowner confronted them about blocking traffic, a common BLM action. Then the shooting started.

Boston’s new mayor, Michelle Wu, took the city by surprise yesterday when she announced that Beantown’s requirement for proof of vaccination to enter most indoor businesses was being lifted “immediately.” This was particularly good news for bars and restaurants in the city which have struggled to enforce the mandate and seen their customer traffic (and profits) tanking over the course of the pandemic. The reason she gave was yet another “following the science” speech, noting that the city’s positivity, hospitalization, and ICU occupancy rates had all fallen below the previously defined limits.

Journalism today stinks! There’s no getting around it anymore. While there are exceptions, and long-form journalism is still worth reading, the news divisions today just stink. And I think my experience allows me to make that judgment. I’ve worn many hats in my life, including, during a couple of stretches, that of journalist. I have always been a consumer of news, and got into it officially through my college paper, where I was on the editorial board and wrote the occasional Op/Ed column. In the Fall of 1972, I caused a bit of a stir with an editorial column titled “Don Quixote vs. the Used Car Salesman.”

Bob Saget’s death in January was a very tragic thing, especially for someone who was still relatively young, was beloved by so many people, and who had contributed so much to the entertainment industry. But now, there are folks raising questions about the serious head trauma he suffered. His death was attributed to head trauma in an autopsy report released on Thursday, and it was assessed to be an accident, i.e. maybe he fell and then went to sleep, and then died. Now, the description of the head trauma is much more extensive than initially suggested, according to the NY Times.

Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) has tried to play the pure one — the one who is only siding with the Democrats because she was concerned about the Constitution, the one who wants to bring the Republicans back, and away from President Donald Trump. She stated outright the most important thing was to make sure he wasn’t able to run again. Now, that’s just so much nonsense. If you were siding with the Constitution, you would know to fight the Democrats at all costs because they are doing all they can to suborn the Constitution and move the country further left. But if that wasn’t already clear it was nonsense,

The COVID-19 Pandemic is now officially over. If you want to be specific, it has gone from ‘Pandemic’ to ‘Endemic’ but that’s not really a new thing when you think about it. The mainstream media would have you believe that COVID being in the ‘Endemic’ phase is a relatively new period. One that they’re not sure how to handle because, if they were to explain it to you, they fear they would lose control over the narrative. After all, endemic means ‘forever’. Sounds scary, but COVID has only been something to fear for those who allowed it to cause fear.

DC Comics, the publisher of comic book icons like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, has gone all-in on woke messaging, particularly where LGBT representation is concerned. Over the summer, they had a massive pride special comic that featured many LGBT characters and was intended to show a spotlight on how diverse its character offerings are. If you’ll recall, DC recently shifted things around and Clark Kent/Kal-El went off-world, leaving the mantle of Superman to his son. A little way into the series, it is revealed that the younger Kent is bisexual. DC Comics made a really big deal about this.

Earlier in the week, I reported that there was a “growing chorus of politicians and health experts” in Canada calling for an end to COVID mandates, after the protests by the Freedom Convoy. While we’ve been focused a lot on the occupation in Ottawa, they also had a blockade going on at the border in Alberta as well as protests in other areas. The RCMP apparently thought they could tow the truckers away, by calling up the local tow truck operations. But they got rejected big time, with the tow truck organization telling them they supported the peaceful protest. We previously reported on a similar effort in Ottawa which also failed.

The Freedom Convoy that made it across Canada from Vancouver to Ottawa is now occupying the streets in front of Parliament and is being supported by people in their efforts against vaccine mandates. They’re also blocking the border in Alberta where they took a vote to stay, in the face of a potential government threat to remove them. The protest even factored into a politician losing his job — unfortunately, not Justin Trudeau.As we reported, it seems to be having an effect, with more experts and officials in Canada now pushing for a return to normal and ‘live with the virus’ approach.

Just about everyone on the Left is claiming that conservatives are racist, white supremacists, want to replace our system of government with an autocracy, hate black people, gays and Jews, and spend their spare time when they aren’t at a bar swilling beer or at a neonazi rally, torturing puppies for sport.

Alec Baldwin may have fired the shot that killed “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins without pulling the gun’s trigger, a New Mexico prosecutor says. Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies told Vanity Fair she had watched Alec Baldwin’s bombshell interview with ABC in December and was drawn to the actor’s claim that he did not pull the trigger. “You can pull the hammer back without actually pulling the trigger and without actually locking it,” Carmack-Altwies said. “So you pull it back partway, it doesn’t lock, and then if you let it go, the firing pin can hit the primer of the bullet.”

As the midterms loom, panicky House Democrats are painfully aware that the political portents do not favor them. They have been consistently behind on the generic congressional ballot, and their fate will be profoundly influenced by President Biden’s abysmal job approval numbers. Consequently, they badly need competent guidance from their leadership. They aren’t getting it. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is instead telling its members that their policies are not the problem. According to a recent Politico report, the DCCC insists that the source of their woes is GOP “culture war attacks” and the solution is better messaging.
