Racial Equality in School Discipline
Buzzy, the Proverbial Fly on the Wall
New Racist Rules
Good morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, January 13, 2014. Our friend Buzzy, the Proverbial Fly on the Wall, has some news he would like to share with us. The Departments of Justice and Education have released a memo that tells the public schools in your nation the correct and approved method of dealing with disruptive students. Personally, this fly thinks both departments are in desperate need of re-education.
In their dubious wisdom, the memo states that it is a violation of federal law for your nation's schools to punish certain races more than others even if certain races break the rules more than other races. By now, you must all be scratching your collection heads in complete disbelief. Let me phrase this another way. The DOJ and the DOE believe that equal numbers of black students and white students should be punished for breaking a rule even though more black students broke the rule than white students. Feel free to scratch your collective heads once again, because this psycho policy still doesn't make any sense explaining it a second time around.
New Math is in Vogue
Discipline by the Numbers
Let's review this new policy with a math problem.Thirteen students arrive at school dressed in bathing suits, thereby violating the dress code. Ten of the students are black and three are white. The school must punish six students in total because keeping the numbers equal between the races is required. Extending this insane policy even further, we can surmise that if Asian students never act up, it may be necessary to punish a few anyway just to keep things fair. If anyone ever had any doubt that the inmates were running the asylum, your doubts should now be put to rest.
If the DOJ and the DOE intended to make sure that minority students were not being treated unfairly, they completely missed the boat writing this policy. What it does accomplish in a big way is giving a complete pass to disruptive students if they outnumber another race.
Handcuff the Offenders
I have spent a good deal of time as a fly on the wall in many a classroom. I have also spent a good deal of time on the walls of the DOJ and the DOE. In my humble opinion both departments need to be put in cuffs and sent away. Let common sense prevail when it comes to discipline in the schools. If a student breaks a rule set forth by the school then let the punishment fit the crime. If the offending student is black, so be it. If the student is white then he or she is white. The color of the skin is irrelevant. It would also behoove the schools to use common sense when deciding what is a crime and what is not. If a kindergarten student eats a salami sandwich and it ends up looking like a gun, it is completely inappropriate to send the child home and suspend him or her. In this case, I recommend suspending the school official who spotted the gun made out of salami.
Let's get back to educating the kids. Is that too much to ask for?
Fly me to the moon
And let me know right from wrong
Let me know what life is like
When big government is gone!
