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.
