Shades of Vonnegut!
If there's any truth to this article, then there's no limit to the stupidity of liberal thought regarding issues of race, equality or education. I don't know which is worse, eliminating a science department because one race excels where another doesn't, or dividing students into racial categories when judging the effectiveness of a program. Who freakin' cares which racial group is doing best? Why not just judge how many STUDENTS are benefitting and how many are failing. How can we expect our kids to develop a color-blind mentality if adults (I use the term loosely when speaking of liberal educators) refuse to ignore skin color? If a kid's failing, what difference does his color have to do with it? Answer: None whatsoever. All that matters is who's raising the kid and how good the teachers are at dealing with kids who are born to idiots.
