As many of you have heard, the school systems in part of Mississippi are the pits. Where our church is the consistent grade has beena D or lower. NOW TELL ME WHAT YOU WOULD DO AS A RESPONSIBLE PARENT IF YOUR CHILD CAME HOME WITH SOME JUNK LIKE THAT?
The children here:
- have low grades and even lower expectations of themselves and their educators
- have low self esteem and are berated, called dumb, stupid, told they need to be in alternative classes, dropout even by BLACK TEACHERS
- Listen as black teachers tell white students they are sorry that they have to be in class with "them" REALLY NOW!!!
- Watch as white children take mandatory standardized exams and they are sent on field trips so they don't lower the national exam average?!@!
- Know that white students are being placed on rosters with white teachers even though their teachers are really black!!!
- have minor infractions like belt, blouse or sock color and are suspended for an entire day! How does that impact LEARNING? LEARNING IS THE OBJECTIVE, RIGHT?
- Children are dragged down stairs, punched, threatened, fight hand to hand...one girl even took her fake leg off and swung on people---just that bad in the Junior High
- TOOK THE ISSUE TO THE SCHOOL BOARD AND A BLACK MEMBER SAID SHUT UP AND SIT DOWN WE HAVE LAWYERS WHO WILL PROTECT US...
- WE RETORTED, DON'T NEED COUNSEL, WE ARE COUNSEL!!!
BLACK PRINCIPAL FIRED BECAUSE A BLACK CHILD BROUGHT A FLASH DRIVE WITH RAP AND DOWNLOADED MORE RAP FROM A LBRARY COMPUTER WHILE SHE WAS GONE AND PLAYED IT AT A PARTY. THE WHITE TERACHER WHO WAS THERE WHEN HE DID IT WAS ELEVATED TO PRINCIPAL AFTER THEY FIRED THE SISTER.
BLACK BAND DIRECTOR REENACTED THE MURDER OF EMMIT TILL AND THE FOUR ALABAMA GIRLS BURNED IN THE CHURCH. HE WAS FIRED DESPITE HAVING PREAPPROVAL. 'SOME WHITES WERE ALLEGEDLY UPSET AND WALKED OUT'---YEAH THE REDNECK SUPERINTENDENT AND NO ONE ELSE. THERE WERE EVEN WHITE STUDENTS IN THE PLAY!!!
- have High School guidance counsellors who even the whites have called to task for their racist tactics but they are still gainfully employed ILL PREPARING OUR STUDENTS FOR GRADUATION, COLLEGE, GRANTS, SCHOLARSHIPS AND EVEN DELAY GETTING THEIR GRADES AND PAPERS IN ON TIME....
AND WITH THE CHANGE IN THE SUPREME COURT VOTER OVERSIGHT.....
HELLO SOMEBODY...MIME TALKING....FREAKY
the districts have been changed and 1700 voters, half of the County have been pulled from the rolls and told to reregister.....so WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE OUTCOME FOR OUR KIDS???
THAT'S WHY WE ARE PUSHING TO START SOJOURNER: STANDING TALL ACADEMICALLY, NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND.
WE NEED $1.1 million BY AUGUST, 2014......NOTHING IS TOOOOOO HARD FOR GOD, BELIEVE THAT!!!
