Detroit Free Press:
Separate-gender classes among changes for Southfield public high schools
Southfield Public Schools today announced wide-ranging changes at the high school level that officials say will help the district improve the way it meets the needs of its increasingly transient population.
Basically, eighth and ninth grade academies within the confines of high schools, and some separate gender education.
Without having known what “Southfield Public Schools” is all about, at least not before going to Great Schools and looking up the racial demographics of their three high schools, I knew just from the wording of the article that it’s basically a black district, for two reasons: One, I know from the St. Louis area that separating freshmen (ninth graders) into their own separate school-within-a-school environment (“ninth grade academy”) is a big fad in the black schools/districts. Two, only a heavily black or Hispanic school/district could get away with separate gender classes without getting the feminist/leftard/SWPL shitstorm.
Indeed, as Great Schools informed me, all three of the Southfield district’s high schools are more than 90% black.
School leaders received guidance from experts in Wayne State University’s College of Education at the start of the redesign process. Those experts will continue to be involved in the implementation of the changes.
Awhile back, a regular AR poster who goes by the screen name “Proactive” had this to say about his alma mater, Wayne State University:
Way back in the 70s when I was about to graduate from Wayne State University in Detroit, we soon-to-be-grads had to assemble in one of the campus auditoriums to write a 250 word essay. Regardless of major, every student had to pass this simple (and widely known) exercise in order to receive their diploma. It was blindingly simple. The instructors gave handouts explaining that you had to introduce the subject, discuss it in the body, and then write the closing. 500 topics to choose from were listed on a separate sheet of paper, and an overhead projector kept the instructions, as explained verbally, cast on a huge screen in front of our huge group. A postcard came in the mail a week later telling if you passed or failed. I was already working at a job in my major when I read in The Detroit News how a large group of black students was suing the school for discrimination. It’s important to note here that Wayne State U in Detroit is and always has been just to the left of Karl Marx, politically. Political Correctness may have been born on this campus. Blacks with just over 1.5 high school GPAs were admitted as freshmen, and they were passed no matter which courses they took. Dumbing down for black students and social promotions were the rules of the day at WSU. After 4 years of, uh, “study”, they had failed the simple essay requirement. Their argument was that the requirement was biased against blacks due to the “fact” (sic) that writing essays were particularly difficult for their race. What’s the complaint in this AR article? That multiple choice tests were too difficult for blacks? What testing method is left? A few weeks later I read where the black students vs. WSU lawsuit was thrown out of court. Due to the absence of a healthy shame among blacks, and their near total disregard for learning while IN school, these idiotic lawsuits continue. Today, the courts appear to be so PC-corrupt that the litigants often win. With the liberal messiah in the highest office, expect more of this insanity. After all, he’s our first PC, affirmative action prez.
If Wayne State is indeed that far left, I’m surprised they countenanced any separate-gender program at all. Or, at the very least, they should have informed the Southfield district that in our world of LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH and combating *-phobia, that there are more than two genders.
