Is the above our new image of segregation in the Twenty-First Century in America?
61 years later, 22,462 days later I find our public schools more segregated than ever, not only by race, but by poverty. 22,462 days later I find 50 states and my nation compromising on equality at every step, and committed not to equality in our public schools, but to scams that harm our nation's children, their parents, their communities. Chief Justice Warren was clear: "We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of 'separate but equal' has no place." I view high-stake assessments and the Common Core State Standards as clear evidence that we as a nation are in violation of the law, and more importantly of our moral obligation to our nation's children. I see no evidence that thousands of new charter schools have done anything to desegregate our public schools. I would even argue that their creation has increased segregtion in our public schools.
Common Core Standards do not differentiate instruction for individual learners.
Silence and apathy are not acceptable,
If you like to know what song I was listening to on my walk this morning, it's Sweet Honey and the Rock's "eye on the prize". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_tcZAqQUAg
