For Duncan, the civil rights issue was that black elementary and high school students are disciplined at a higher rate than whites. His evidence for discrimination is that blacks are three and a half times more likely to be suspended or expelled than their white peers. Duncan and his Obama administration supporters conveniently...
I remember attending, I believe it was 5th or 6th grade and many, if not all, of the black students were bused in. The homeroom teacher was black and always seemed to ignore or dismiss the rude and disruptive behavior of the black students. However, if I happened to talk during one of her lesson's she didn't hesitate to scold me. At one point she had my mother come in for a conference. All I kept thinking was is why my mother was coming in for a conference when you had at least 5 black students creating chaos on a daily basis. During the conference I had the courage to ask why is it that you ignore the chaos the black students are causing and only focusing on the minor infractions of myself? Her answer "because I expect more out of you"!
If I were a Klansman, wanting to sabotage black education, I couldn't find better allies than education establishment liberals and officials in the Obama administration, especially Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, who in March 2010 announced that his department was "going to reinvigorate civil rights enforcement."
