Tuscon school district to impose raced-based discipline standards

In Tuscon, there will be two sets of disciplinary standards for students. One for blacks and hispanics, and one for everyone else.

With the goal of creating a "restorative school culture and climate" that conveys a "sense of belonging to all students," the board is insisting that its schools reduce its suspensions and/or expulsions of minority students to the point that the data reflect "no ethnic/racial disparities."

From the section of the 52-page plan titled "Restorative School Culture and Climate," subhead, "Discipline":

"School data that show disparities in suspension/expulsion rates will be examined in detail for root causes. Special attention will be dedicated to data regarding African-American and Hispanic students."

The board approved creating an "Equity Team" that will oversee the plan to ensure "a commitment to social justice for all students."

Right on! Who did these (racist) administrators think they were, punishing black and hispanic kids at a higher rate??? As we know, the rate of punishment should be completely equal, or in fact, maybe even a little higher for white kids. After all, a white kid just existing is offensive. They're all born racists. Newsweek said so.

Equally punished Link.
