The other side is the "blacks" that are smart but decide to extend that same government exploitation to minority groups. The "educators" choose to pocket government funds (people's tax in form of grants), they skim money through every step within the processes so it's more difficult to trace and provides them anonymity while performing deceptive acts in a PUBLIC position of authority given to them through a government department.
That's exactly why they make exceptions for their own children and family regardless of their performance, while complaining they don't get paid enough money that's not even theirs. They know there is more money in it for them to steal away if the quotas are met. The schools are more like auction houses, "smart kids over here for sale to meet quota for grant programs", "dumb kids over here for sale to hold overall attendance/enrolled quotas", "violent kids over that way to source more funding in grants for programs that aren't designed to help".
If any of the resources given to the crooked to manage ACTUALLY begins to do it's job then they will surely throw a wrench into it's gears, just to source money out of the school and into their home. You can easily see this because there are always gangs stirring up violence when things are going well and students actually show up to learn. These officials in the city can lock up cartels but schools are "too much to handle". They all work in a cycle and strategically place them closer to a welfare cycle just so they can ridicule them and point the finger with a "see!, told you they were lazy". When those school administrations say "let's try again next year", they are talking to their "crew" in the schools about the exploiting of a system that already exploits and puts minority people at a disadvantage.They're the ones usually saying, "those aren't my people" AS they are tricking/scamming them, but they need those same people to sign up!
Black people are being exploited alright! The anger the rage which has been percolating (doesn’t help that black parents often teach their children that white people are racist and against them whether it’s actually true or NOT it’s what’s being taught) the banking class the wealthy class is tapping into that rage to fuel civil unrest amongst the working class. Working class POOR working class blacks and whites are being pitted against each other so they won’t unite against the wealthy class. The wealthy class (the truly ‘privileged’) realize that we outnumber them and need to be kept in our place. Instead of blaming your fellow wage slave we should unite against the true enemy of the people. It sounds cliche but it’s time to WAKE UP.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Inh7A5pdtVw why does it make me think of this video and song...both has something to do with strawberries and making underprivileged kids feel better/have somewhat of a better life. of course without the magic appearing carnival though.....lol
Can we please have a moment to honor this principle? She took the time to sacrifice her time for these students who need help and has helped them she is a strong leader and I bet because of her, kids are doing better and I’m so happy for her. 💜💜💜
People are blind. The school gets money but installs cameras and still needs more? Has media show up to "legitimze" getting more funding because some "students" decide to fight in school usually AND specifically at lunch... sounds and looks like a "criteria" that is simply met. Because somehow these schools get to operate day after day on tax dollars and grants which are also tax dollars. SCAM
this is crazy that there is so much violence. God Bless the staff and those students in that school. We really need to look at Poverty this is heart breaking and I am sure that is in numerous other places besides Strawberry mansion.
The false narrative is that black students are involved in more disciplinary reports due to white racism and that white students behave EXACTLY THE SAME they simply don’t get reported as much. This is how the ‘restorative justice model’ was conceived under the Obama administration. Under this model Schools have been threatened to not report or suspend black students lest they lose funding and find themselves in hot water. These black students are being sacrificed for a false narrative. When there are no consequences for bad behavior there is no incentive to behave differently. Racism isn’t the issue here. It’s not true that white students do it too. Where are all the cell phone videos of the brawls and violence involving white students? Yet there is an over abundance of videos showing black students as many as 50-100 at times involved in riots at their schools. Yes there are issues needing to be addressed but false narratives aren’t going to cut it. Pitting whites against blacks is counter productive and racist. These students need support not lies.
I used to live in Oskaloosa Iowa, which the school there are really nice and everyone shows respect to each other. Now that I moved to California, and I pm stuck with School knifing, fights, and even vaping everywhere. I’m really scared of living in California, and going to these schools.
what you gotta do It poured gasoline all around the outside of the high school and light it up These people are nothing But welfare rats and that's all there ever will be 🐵🐵🐵🐵🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥flame on bitch
Only 1 parent out of 70 shows up for the parent/teacher conference? The parents are the reason most of these kids are out of control. Instead of going to a football/basketball game bar or club take an interest in your childs education. Going to a PTA is certainly better than going to court or going to prison for visitation rights.
Where I come from the principal would randomly show up at your classroom, and if he/she saw something out of the ordinary they would triple your homework, and if you did not so the triple homework they had the right to keep you at school for a weekend
My school is even worse than this one. It’s just chaos all over. The police has to come twice a weak. People here fight with chairs, and at lunch people throw glasses, plates and so on. Half of the students here are drug dealers and you can literally buy drugs in the hallways. Just a month ago a teacher got raped BY A STUDENT. It’s a disgusting school
You have got to form a harder more aggressive personality when you have to live under harsh unforgiving circumstances like that, "I'm little and quiet" is not going to cut it and neither will "using your words", the parents of these kids need to teach them to be tougher and louder both mentally and physically otherwise they will not make it in that hellish environment or the one waiting for them when they get out into the real world.
I got a solution make school of earned right not just a given privilege that everyone has if you don't do well and you don't serve your community you don't get to go to school you can just run the street and then we'll put you in some institution Work Camp and you can go there chop firewood dig holes work in a fire camp the world doesn't give a fuck you little assholes stop being fucking gangbanging piece of shit and go to school and learn something just kids in Africa where to pay to go to school have to work for a week to get a bottle of water that they can drink it doesn't have bacteria in it you spoiled little motherfuckers are there stabbing each other
There's been 2 deaths and like 20 fights in my school already
The 2 deaths were not at school but still they were running from some cars tryna kill them and they got they legs ripped n shit
Som girl tried to kill a teacher
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
