US DOJ Demands Race-Based Punishments In Schools

The disparate impact doctrine is evil. Implement different standards for different races in schools or face the wrath of the US Department of Justice.

“Schools also violate Federal law when they evenhandedly implement facially neutral policies and practices that, although not adopted with the intent to discriminate, nonetheless have an unjustified effect of discriminating against students on the basis of race.

Examples of policies that can raise disparate impact concerns include policies that impose mandatory suspension, expulsion, or citation (e.g., ticketing or other fines or summonses) upon any student who commits a specified offense — such as being tardy to class, being in possession of a cellular phone, being found insubordinate, acting out, or not wearing the proper school uniform.”

The kids, if undisciplined, will act even worse.

Again, the disparate impact doctrine is evil. The Tabula Rasa faith remains undiminished among the Cathedral believers. The Cathedral is a cancer eating at the body politic.

This Obama Administration policy is extremely destructive. Edward Lazear, an economist at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, has pointed out that a small number of disruptive kids cause a huge reduction in teaching and learning time in class rooms.

The results are striking. If each student behaves well 99 percent of the time, learning takes place 78 percent of the time in a class of 25; if good behavior drops to 98 percent, learning takes place only 60 percent of the time; at 97 percent, learning drops to a mere 47 percent of the time.

The black and Hispanic kids who who do not get removed from classes due to their behavior will worsen the already slow learning rates of those kids of the lower classes who aren't disruptive. This is unfair and really quite cruel.

People with the money to move to a school district will less disruptive kids will try to move or will avoid moving to districts with unruly schools. Parents will try even harder to choose places to live based on their secret beliefs while they pretend otherwise.

This policy will cause an even bigger drive by white and Asian parents to flee from school districts whose administrators are afraid to maintain discipline. The upper middle class and upper class are best equipped to carry out this flight. But even the shrinking middle will flee as well.

This is really a nonissue as long as the schools are segregated, which by and large they are. Instead of railing against black idiocy, we should be working to rescue poor whites from these detention centers.

disparate impact came from the upper class--they invented it. And disparate impact HELPS the upper class. But so few even consider this idea--the idea that different sectors of the populace have differing self-interests. What a concept! How about whenever you talk about public policy, especially race oriented policy, you include some verbiage about how such policies and laws help or hurt the upper class? You would be unique. Well, except for me...

help or hurt the upper class? Not the upper class, the upper middle class. The children of both go to schools, private and public, that are de facto segregated by today's standard. The upper class will always be insulated, but by going along with a program that hits someone else's children the upper middle class buys the privilege of living a segregated lifestyle while placating political power by paying lip service to multiculturalism. This cuts across the political spectrum, and you won't hear much from conservatives about it because they have a tacit agreement with the upper class left to preserve their mutual class interests.

Whites need to agitate for our own schools as part of the reparations owed to us for the genocide, the American Holocaust, that is being waged against us, a Holocaust that includes deliberately sponsored mass murder, rape, terrorism, and ethnic cleansing. Only when whites begin to take this next step in militancy will there be a possibility of change.

Am I the only one to notice the word "facially"?

No doubt schools will even the playing field by expelling White kids for the most trivial of offenses, while giving Black thugs-in-training a pass for the most outrageous misbehavior.
