Florida is dumbing down the standards in Palm Beach. The school board wants to implement standards that are based on race. The order goes, Asians, Whites, Hispanics, and African Americans. In math, the standards for passing will be 92% Asian, 86% White, 80% Hispanics, 74% Afr Americans. How is that for minority children, you are already expected to perform worse than your white and Asian students from the get go? On top of it, those students who may need more help are socially promoted to the next grade and become further and further behind rather than stay back and get help?
