Yes Babs it is. If you cannot see that they CHEATED to achieve a result that they were not being PROVIDED the RESOURCES to achieve, then yes it is a racial issue. What area is the school located in? What is their tax base like? How much is allotted for learning materials? Can you answer me that? They cheated, they were WRONG. Flat our period WRONG. They should have let the chips fall where they may and then went before the School Superintendent and told them what they needed in order to get these children on level or close to it. The other thing is parents need to understand that you CANNOT send your children to school speaking slang, that is NOT how the outside world works. When you see them mangling the English language it makes your head and heart hurt for them. I am a black woman with 3 children. All have gone to school, all know how and when to speak to people and even as adults, if I hear them mangle a word I keep saying what did you say until they get it right. I want to see and educated and well rounded populace. Not a pipeline to the prison system. And if you check to story in florida, they recently admitted that is what they had been doing and that they were going to stop it.
