Affirmative action, diversity, integration, etc. are spreading the values or lack thereof of South Central to all American schools? They are getting worse? More apathy, more violence, more fear, more lies? South Central, coming to a school near you.
This is another barrier to the Peano Axiom Revolution reaching the schools. But it is not the only one.
The Time op ed piece arguing against testing is a manifestation of the rising expectations of no expectations. Don’t test because testing shows diversity doesn’t work.
The American system of Diversity is dysfunctional at its core. It is a failure. It is failing before our eyes. It is failing in our schools, or is it their schools? It is failing in our streets, or what were once our streets. It is failing in cities like Chicago, where the teachers see the spray painting on the wall.
The big issue for Chicago teachers was to avoid high stakes testing. Teachers don’t want to be tagged with the failures of diversity. They know diversity is a lie and a dysfunction. It is like the first Obama Romney debate.
Diversity can only show up, it can’t do the work. The same as Condi Rice and Susan Rice. Both parallel responses to al Qaeda terrorism. They just ignored it. That wasn’t their business. Same as the city of Chicago working or having a pension system that is solvent. That isn’t Diversity’s business, to make the society work and to pay for it.
The failure of high stakes testing is part of takergeddon, the failure of the diversity taker society. We can call it testgeddon or testageddon. It is Diversity itself on the pyre of high stakes testing. This is why the teacher unions are up in arms. They are going to be burned for Diversity’s sake.
