Education: The War Against Defenseless Kids

This article is titled "The War against Black Children." But it's really about the war against defenseless children,  no matter what color they are or what group they belong to.

 Truth is, there are lots of dysfunctional and destructive methods used in our public schools. If parents run screaming to the school, the education commissars will back off.

But if there's nobody to defend those kids, the bad methods will be locked in place. This end-result is especially common in poor neighborhoods, minority neighborhoods, places where there are no responsible adults willing to step in and fight for the kids.

 A famous phonics crusader just sent me a story about a school in South Carolina where a successful phonics program  was getting great results. But the superintendent canceled this program because he needed to have lots of children in the remedial programs, otherwise he would lose the federal and state funding he wanted. His decision is so sick that I hate even to think about it. But this single anecdote  reveals the crux of the national crisis: children kept illiterate so that a heartless superintendent can have more money in his budget. The man belongs in jail.
