But how many parents in these communities can barely read themselves or don't believe in it.

Hmmm damn I didn't catch the racists parts. I thought it was really about schools in poor neighborhoods.

Welp we get the blame for everything else why not the blame for Americans ranking so low in international trst scores

many of them can't.... however the ones who can read are not investing the time either....
Not just because they are horrible parents but because they dont know what the academic expectations are and how they've changed in the past years

There were many racist statements that implied and flat-out stated that AA/Blacks' low performance in school is due to our inherent inferiority - and that it is supposedly our in our nature to be academically and intellectually inferior than our counterparts.

As far as underachievement in the black community, I place the blame squarely on us. I recognize the structural issues (poverty, lack of funding, lack of appropriate educational interventions, etc) but there is far too much dysfunction that rests squarely on our shoulders. Let me know when there's a conversation about that.

^ pretty much. 

And I avoided calling that post an "article" for a reason - I think that's giving the author too much credit; sounded more like a vent/rant as opposed to a legitimate 'article.'

that article is ridiculous.... 

however in my profession as a school psychologist I see very noticeable differences in how "they" do things in regards to academics/environmental exposure/language/behavior and how "we" do things.... 

these differences often lead to our children appearing to be lower performers

The issue is that the actual student body looks significantly different than it did 50 years ago. In many school districts, they are fully including students with learning disabilities, as well as english language learners. Teachers are given very little training and support in meeting the needs of these students. Whether the disability is academic or emotional/social based, the consequences of having such students in a school definitely changes the dynamic. I'm a fan of the inclusion model because throwing all the "sped" kids in the basement is indeed barbaric… We just need to better equip educators to meet their needs. Teaching is difficult because there is no one size fits all answer. Each child has their own unique story and combination of interventions and such that will influence and encourage them to do the right thing. There's a reason why teachers typically leave the field 5 years in…They often feel overwhelmed, under appreciated, disillusioned, and basically burned out. I'm very much considering home schooling. The job that teachers are asked to do is impossible and I don't want my child to get lost in the system.

I'd like for the author of this shyt article to kindly fukk off, please and thank you. Only racist whites believe anything in the Bell Curve is true and unfortunately, that's exactly who the fukk is teaching our kids. The system needs to be overhauled and a more egalitarian solution to education needs to be applied or we can just sit out of the international competition for academic excellence. Black kids are just as capable of learning, but only if you understand the cultural differences that prevent whites from understanding HOW to teach us.

Charter schools aren't successful because they are privatized miracles. They are successful because they, in part, understand how to teach black children.
