The principal`s memo is written verbatim in the article, and yeah--those kids are in trouble when they get older.

Tourettes, I don't think it`s racial as much as it is location. Blacks and hispanics tend to live in areas with more poverty and worse schooling. backs your statements up with facts as opposed to personal experiences and vague, general claims. And don`t cite Mencia, he`s an idiot.

"Teachers at the school stand to receive $3,000 bonuses if their school improves."

There's the bottom line. Lower the standards, more students get passing grades, the school can post improved results and get more funding. The taxpayers lose because more money will be alloted for a school with lower standards. The students lose because their education level is lowered. Society as a whole loses eventually when the graduates enter the job market or end up on public relief becaust they can`t compete.

our high school had to create an 8 and a half grade for students who couldn't get past middle school but not ready for high school. They were in a trailer in the back.

Come on people the answer is obvious! Minorities can't learn as well as Whites and Asians can!

It`s a freaking fact and nobody can BS me on it! The reason why my alma mater high school is still in the top 100 for at least a decade is because the school was 40% asian and 40% white.

If that isn`t enough, think about all the inner city schools full of hispanics and blacks. Deep South schools full of post-slavery blacks. New York City and its mix. No learning, all failures.

Carlos Mencia had a bit about how and why asians were sucessful; it is a little bit racial but the rest of it was becuase of their effort, and not even that, asian kid`s parents busting their butt to get at least a B average.
