What can be said about this except for the obvious sadness in the headline. Despite whatever advance we may as a country have made education in this country is still more about warehousing than education and is still parceled out according to wealth and status.
I wish schools were different but they are not and never will be. Young minority children need more than rappers and bas
ketballers to look up to, and when the schools themselves segreate quality and class sizes according to ethnicity and wealth and status, it’s ultimately the same as it was fifty years ago if not worse. (Then you could take electives such as shop class, auto mechanics, music, art. Now most schools no longer have these classes.)
It’s just a damn depressing headline that doesn’t surprise me, but is just a sad reminder of where we really are in this country.
