NY City Diversity Committee Says Programs for Gifted Students Are 'Racist'
PJ Media
BY RICK MORAN AUGUST 27, 2019


A school diversity committee formed by Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to eliminate programs for gifted and talented students, claiming they perpetuate racial inequality because theyíre comprised mostly of white and Asian students.

The committee also recommended scrapping all forms of screening for students across the city. The report has no binding power, but de Blasio can implement the panel's recommendations if he wishes. After the lip service to quality education, what's really at stake here? Perhaps we should be asking about the legitimacy of these programs.

But the schools chancellor has already openly questioned the legitimacy of gifted-and-talented programs, including to a group of Queens parents in February.
ďWhen you have over 35% of your students be designated as gifted and talented, we need to bottle the water weíre drinking and ship it all over the place,Ē he said sarcastically.

ďBecause that is far beyond the percentage of gifted and talented that, from a statistical perspective, should be found in the population.Ē

Backers of the current system counter that it rewards diligence and accommodates families of advanced kids who would otherwise abandon the public school system altogether And proponents of gifted-and-talented programs and other screens note that many top city schools have significant populations of poor immigrants.

The bottom line is lower standards, making "gifted and talented" hollow words, indeed.

Still, the efficacy of having gifted and talented programs cannot be denied. When some students are being held back from learning by others, there is a need to recognize talent and nurture it by designing a curriculum that will challenge a gifted student -- regardless of race.

All pigs are equal, but only the rich one's deserve good schools. The rest need to be in slave internment conditioning camps.

:yeahthat:

The "rich" - which is to say, the movers and shakers of NYC who control DeBlahBlahBlah's future - won't be impacted by this; their kids are in private schools, gifted or not.

Net result will be decreasing the divide between gifted and non-gifted in public schools at the expense of increasing the divide between public and private students... exactly what the 'establishment' wants.

SOCIALISM 101: Instead of raising up the underachievers, beat down the overachievers... expect for those in the ruling class.

This thing called 'socialism' - even so-called 'Democratic Socialism' - is nothing new. It's nothing more than the putrid zombified corpse of feudalism re-animated by con artists who would have voters believe that things will be different if only they were in charge, when in fact the only actual difference they're striving for is the names of those who are in charge.

All the leftists care about is equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity. Because when everyone is special, no one will be. Except the pigs in office and their supporters. They will just be more equal...

Test scores have no ethnicity or gender.

They are what they are, and if those test scores place a child in the gifted category, then that's where they belong.

Anyone having a problem with the numbers is clearly too stupid to grasp the concept, which is incredibly simple and should be self explanitory.

Itís the same old we donít want equality, we want extra rights and if we canít compete equally we want to take away what you have. Iím sorry numbers and facts arenít racist. But if Iím a minority and score lower itís the systems fault because...... my gues because you didnít study maybe? Because you had a one parent home that didnít make you study and let you do what you wanted. Thatís usually the case in white trailer parks to. So take it up with your parents not teaching you personal responsibility

Oh, these people aren't stupid; they know quite well what's what and it's all deliberate. Because it's just not possible to be THAT stupid and still maintain control over one's own breathing and bodily functions.
