The way I wrote "so why bother learning" didn't work.
I didn't mean to say "schools teach not to bother learning".
I meant to say kids are picking up the message the government is obligated to take care of them.
So..the take away is not to worry about their own future and how they will survive ie....why bother learning?
Ok...back to my idea that America's education culture is a major part of the difference between the US and other countries and not simply how much money is spent.
I have to suspect there might be a strange mechanism going on with some kids, especially minorities.
I'm not being racist. I'm asking a question.
I am coming from the angle I have seen some of the strangest attitudes and beliefs be considered racist by minorities that I really disagree with. Some things are called "racist" that simply aren't to me.
My question...is this constant victim-hood status being perpetuated on minority children so they will remain faithful Democrats, and see Republicans as out to get them, contributing to this apparently decade after decade never ending failure to thrive within the black culture.
Lastly, is applying themselves and studying and getting "good grades" considered conforming to the white man's world?
From what I've read improving your grades doesn't help social standing within minority cultures.
I really believe our own cultures in the US are sabotaging the future of our own children for ulterior motives having little to do with learning.
