This is evil. But it is called good. These school officials are destroying these kids. To excuse and reward failure because of bad and irresponsible behavior is racism. When kids are graded more favorably because their skin color is a different color, you are telling those kids that they are inferior and are not capable of competing with other kids. You are dooming those kids to a life of failure and many times to a live spent in and out of prison. It is these school officials who are the worst of all people.
Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRF) administrators will require teachers next school year to adjust their classroom grading scales to account for the skin color or ethnicity of its students.
School board members discussed the plan called “Transformative Education Professional Development & Grading” at a meeting on May 26, presented by Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning Laurie Fiorenza.
[The plan] calls for what OPRF leaders describe as “competency-based grading, eliminating zeros from the grade book…encouraging and rewarding growth over time.” Teachers are being instructed how to measure student “growth” while keeping the school leaders’ political ideology in mind.
Students, depending on their race, will not be held accountable for missing class, misbehaving in school, or for failing to turn in assignments.
The proper alternative would be to ignore race completely. It would be to hold all students to the same standards and apply the same grading system to students. The classroom would be a place for learning with discipline applied equally and rewards granted based on performance. Color of skin would never be a factor in discipline or rewards. It would be only the content of the character and not the color of the skin that would determine consequences of behavior and effort, good or bad.
We must remove any and all social justice programs from our schools, from our society and become a society that ignores color of skin and focuses on content of character.
The above program must be reversed if those kids are to have any hope of success, both social and financial.
