You know the kind, when they can win a game they turn over the game board. So again, let's visit the mindset that rules the Navy manpower world via the CNO's diktat.
After weeks of debate that touched on academics, race and politics, Evanston Township High School District 202 approved a dramatic plan Monday night that eliminates a combined honors English and history course for the highest-achieving incoming freshmen -- usually white students.You see, logic and performance mean nothing. You don't acknowledge, encourage, or promote excellence. Excellence doesn't matter. Only one thing does.
The unanimous school board vote paves the way for freshmen of all races, socioeconomic and achievement backgrounds next fall to take the same freshman humanities course next fall. Proponents of the move see it as a way to diversify advanced courses and circumvent the traditional process of tracking students into courses by test scores that often places minorities in lower-level classes.
The board approved the plan despite opposition from hundreds of parents who signed a petition urging officials to at least delay the proposal while it can be studied further.
Evanston, the liberal and diverse home of Northwestern University, has one of the most racially mixed high schools in Illinois. It also has a mission of embracing diversity and promoting equity and excellence for all students.Therefor, it must be killed. You see, it is much easier to tear down than it is to build up. If nothing else, the intellectually lazy like the Diversity Bullies like lazy.
But its own data show that few minority students make it into the school's most rigorous honors and Advanced Placement courses.
