Florida Department of Education: Ditch the new race-based academic plan

This is government-sanctioned racism. This plan sets different expectations and rates of success for students based on race. Not only can this affect funding to schools based on race, which limits education for racial minorities, this also sets up achievement as a product of race and severely lowers the self esteem and the self worth of students, especially hispanic and black students, which have the lowest rates of success, according to this plan.

      I am in the Minority and I will not let my education or my future children's education be hindered because of your lack of respect. You white privileged, poor excuse for human beings we call the Government.

      Not only is this stupidly racist, but it's avoiding fixing the real problems by lowering expectations instead! If they have data to prove minority children are falling behind, they need to use it to help them, not write them off!
