Re: “The Wrong Path?

Let me better understand the problem. A low performing high school, where my grandfather graduated from in 1929, crafts a program to help all students become better prepared for college is now a threat because the demographics changed? Having a diverse group of students in your classroom does not mean improved academic performance. If diversity is the goal, tearing down a program that improves student outcomes is the wrong solution.

Re: “The Wrong Path?

Oh Oakland! "Equality" run amok! If the kids deserve to be there based on grades and their interests, and that causes them (regardless of race) to be seen as "elite", then the underperforming ones shouldn't cry. But cry they do and will continue to do so, all the while missing the lesson that life ain't fair to begin with, and only hard work and effort will help get one ahead.

Do well, or don't, but do not drag others down. Some people need to realize their kids should become acquainted to digging ditches..

In any case, thank God for Oakland, because it contains the crazy in a small part of the bay area.
