Schoolboy smiling in class

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania teachers have had enough of violent altercations with students in grades K-12. The Harrisburg Education Association says at least 45 teachers have resigned since July and October. More teachers have resigned after October, according to Association President Jody Barksdale.

CBS Philly reports first-grade teacher Amanda Sheaffer told school board members she has been hit and kicked by her students.

Parents narrowed the problem down to children from single parent households who are not disciplined because there are no males present in the household.

The school board and the Education Association are brainstorming to come up with a solution to the violence.

Schoolboy Sits at a Table Daydreaming

Barksdale says the association wants a task force comprised of teachers, administrators and parents to help students who display violent behaviors.

The board should consider identifying disruptive students and enrolling them in “alternative schools” for children with behavioral disorders.

Alternative schools for disruptive students were phased out when liberals, aka Democrats, and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) deemed the schools to be racist.

But studies show that students tend to perform better academically when children with conduct and defiant disorders are identified and removed from the classroom.

    So parents narrowed it down to this? They took a poll?

    “The board should consider identifying disruptive students and enrolling them in “alternative schools” for children with behavioral disorders.”
    ——–
    Seems like “alternative” has become the bad word of 2017.

    I would hate being a teacher. Adults are already too much.

    Why the photo of the young black boy to accompany an article about violence in Pennsylvanian schools?

  • 5000BlinK

    So much to say about this but who do you point the finger at? The Parents, the children or the Teachers and staff. One thing I noticed in a lot of schools in my area in the last 10 years it seems a lot of Teachers where hired straight out of College into Public schools without even thinking about what to do when you have an issue with a childs behavior. It was almost as if they didnt expect to run into behavior issues. Teachers that were more seasoned knew how to handle behavior issues, but the fresh out of college ones….. are clueless

    Teachers need to wear bodycams so that parents can see for themselves how their children behave.

  • 5000BlinK

    Im thinking Sandra know all of the schools and they must all be mostly Black…..but then again we are only like 2% of the population here in America so I don’t see how that’s possible

  • Noirluv45

    I think we are about 12% of the population. It seems to fluctuate. Sometimes I see 13%.

  • 5000BlinK

    Trust …..Parents know when their Kid is capable of being a problem

  • Ni Ni

    I don’t blame them for quitting. My school district can’t keep teachers either for that reason. We couldn’t even get substitute teachers to come to the high school i used to work at. Some of those disruptive children should be home schooled. They have k-12 online now.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I don’t blame them. In Philly these students are out of control and disrespect anybody. They had CEP schools in Philly but the majority of the students were black and the schools that had white disruptive student’s would just continue to keep them instead of shipping them to CEP. Most schools here are charter now and they close at the drop of a dime if funding is not in place. Its a damn shame we can get funding for everything else but quality schooling. They took away art, music and other outlets that some of these kids need to get them out of the rachet Philly mindset its so sad…

    One of my family members told us a situation that happened with his child at school and he got on the teacher telling her that his child did not do it because he didn’t raise him that way. When he left, my older relative said, that boy (child) did it and i agreed. When his father is not around, he is a totally different person.

  • klwbaby

    When all of else fails, blame single moms. I have went to several websites who have posted this story, and none said a damn thing about parents have narrowed the problem to single moms.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    “Studies show that young people raised in single-parent families show more achievement and behavior problems than those who were raised in 2-parent households.”

    Sorry hun, these are the facts.

  • Vicki White

    Parents. Worldstar. And a culture trend that views fighting each other as a form of ENT. Not necessarily in that order.

  • kgirl33

    My father was a school teacher starting in the 70’s and ending in 98. He always said teaching started to go bad in the late 80’s (probably due to the crack epidemic). By the early 90’s he started to dislike teaching because at that point he couldn’t teach. He was too busy disciplining. The parents became inactive so he was the father disciplinary and teacher. He was such a great teacher and man so it really was a shame that the thing he loved to due was no longer fun, but a burden.

  • Tay Gee

    Teachers are reclaiming their time and I’m here for it!!
    Parents have got to do a better job with the kids they send to these schools. Teachers are there to educate, not babysit. Parents need to step up before more teachers step down. #bringbackcorporalpunishment lol

  • klwbaby

    Sorry hun, u need to read my comment again because I was referring to just this story.

  • Anunnaki

    Black single parent home, equals disruptive kids, fighting each other, and sometimes teachers.

    White 2 parent homes equals terrorist , kill the students and teachers, then we off ourselves,

    I’ll take the single black home for 200 alex

  • Anika Kelly

    the BS fluff story

  • kgirl33

    It’s bad because a lot of the times the fathers are non existent and if the single mom is trying to do her part she’s overwhelmed with working and/or going to school. She may be just trying to survive and keep food in the house. Then you have the mother’s that are too busy living there own life and chasing down men that they have no time or interest in raising there children.

  • Anika Kelly

    with you on that

  • shun king

    this also happens at white schools teachers across america are leaving because the white ladies are going to the school beating the teachers down and the students are fighting like cats and dogs in gangs and everything

  • Dowoop

    Those are Sandra’s facts – notice she didn’t include a link. Also notice that she now says “young people” but only include pictures of black kids. She is a racist. I will not say self hating because im not sure she is a black woman.

  • MsPam

    If people stop talking/worrying about Meek Mill being locked up and fund their schools, that will help, Jay Z.

  • RAISE YOUR KIDS!!

    The bottom line to this story is RAISE your darn kids, if they are mentally challenged put those kids where they will not disrupt the classroom. Some of you parents are uneducated and need parenting classes.
    JUST BECAUSE THE MAN LEFT, DOES NOT MEAN YOU GET A PASS
    FROM NOT RAISING YOUR KIDS, HELL YOU LAID UP THERE AND HAD
    THEM HEATHENS……I’m a single parent and I’m black and I make sure
    my kids respect me and others…….The reason they felt it was racist is because the majority of disruptive idiots were BLACK, and that is not racist that is
    called parents not giving their kids the right education……STOP MAKING IT EVERYONE ELSE’S PROBLEM, when you the parent is the problem.

  • Soda

    You wrote something negative about white people, not blacks, as you usually do. Are you feeling okay?

    Alternative schools for disruptive students were phased out

    ^^^^^^^^^
    Not here. They still sending kids over to Mt. Vernon (Behavioral) Redirection Middle School. And its 2-3 other ones, goes up to all grade levels, in my county too. And we are the 15th-16th largest school system nationally.

  • Dowoop

    Thats because some parents beat the kids into obedience at home and the kids go to school and take it out on other kids and the teachers. Im all for an ass whooping when deserved but some parents take it to far and for the wrong reasons.

  • isaiit

    I wish we were allowed more than one vote. I totally agree with you

  • my view

    she is…may not be nice on the eyes but she is black

  • Tay Gee

    To clarify, I am certainly not blaming women. Out of control kids come from all types of homes including, single parent, co-parent, married, adopted, etc. There is just a lack of boundaries and rules set at home from time to time. As a former teacher, I certainly understand why teachers are throwing their hands up, but not agreeing with blaming women or single parents.

  • justlooking

    Many children do need additional assistance. Unfortunately is an issue all over the country. To make matters worse some of these teachers don’t belong in the class room anyways. Between sexually violating the children and talking to them like they are animals. Shameful all the way around.

    Exactly why I’m not a teacher. I’d rather deal with schizophrenics than to deal with these delinquents. These teachers have no protection or recourse with these nuts.

  • KA

    My girlfriend is a teacher and when she told me she was kicked, hit and spit on, and called b^+ch and h0e by a kindergartner, I was absolutely floored. She diagnosed the problem as parents who don’t attend parent teacher conferences, don’t participate in their child’s education in any way (not even helping with homework), think of school as free babysitting and takes the child’s side when there is a discipline issue.

    I was raised in a household without a father, and I would have NEVER acted like that because I knew my mother would kill me. It does all begin in the home. It is not the school’s job to raise a child. If kids don’t come to school to learn, send them home. Teachers are already overworked and underpaid and deserve the utmost respect.

    it is totally awful whats going on in these inner city school. i know a few teachers and they are just waiting to get hurt by a student so they can sue the city

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    It is single moms though primarily. Are you willing and prepared to look deeper at the issue and focus on single black mothers? I think as black people, we want to immediately turn to ‘well, white people do it too’ or move the conversation away from the topic/main point, in general. No one will ever start a story highlighting the exception.

    I’m same sex oriented and man, I see all the time how people try to say homosexuality ties to pedophilia or molestation. Although I personally haven’t molested anyone and have no interest in even a 20something, I can read or review statistics with an open mind as it relates to homosexuality. It may not be you that this is talking about, but as a whole, a group, or specific demographic, it does apply.

    Apples and oranges, but I wanted to point out an example of a topic that talks about or affects me and how I have to receive it, like it or not.

    My mom works in education and a few friends also work at different levels of education, one being a Professor.

    A week doesn’t go by that my mom doesn’t have another horror story about a student at her high school. As for my friends that work in the inner city or the hoods, a day doesn’t go by. One friend, female, got locked up (in the fight, not jail locked up) with a student who was trying to fight her. She got the best of the student so you know what that means; the student went home crying to mommy and wanted my friend fired.

    I don’t blame these teachers. I’d quit too. It’s not worth it. The day Mother Pointhimout says some student hit her, that will be the first time I’ll be in jail. I’m running you over, crowning you with my steel bat, etc. These lil machines are dangerous.

  • kgirl33

    I absolutely agree with not putting the blame on women, but something is going on. Something isn’t adding up. It could be a combination of the food we’re feeding our children to our children being raised by telievision to not having creative outlets in the schools anymore. Who knows, but we have to do better as a community period.

    I said I don’t see were they said single moms is the reason for the schools being closed. I can read a study with an open mind but I also know that some studies are completely false and they are only trying to push a certain narrative or stereotype about a group of people they claimed to have studied.

  • free

    i’m surprised folk took this shade as fact. it was so obviously SR.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Something has got to be done about these bad-azz kids!!! These kids can attack a teacher but if the teacher turns around and bats hell out of the kid then the teacher loses their job. Kids know this and use it to their advantage. My sister is a principal of a school and has witnessed girls tryna get a male teacher that they did not like in trouble by saying that he touched them inappropriately. It was found out that the kids had a list of teachers who they planned to lie on and get fired!

    PersonalIy, I don’t blame single moms. I was raised by a single mom myself. If anything, I blame the absentee fathers. Single moms out there are trying to do a good job under difficult circumstances, but I think most of us recognize that the outcomes for children are generally better if they’re raised in a home where the father is present.

  • free

    sheeeed, my child goes to private school and they have the same problem w/ 2-parent homes. it is the type of discipline and rearing, not the number of people. the focus is on single parents because so many of them have their kids in the public system where there is a lot of scrutiny. these private schools got kids acting a cotd*mn fool just like the public system.

  • Faux Gibbler

    It starts at home. I grew up in a single family home and let me tell you -‘I knew better than to even think about hitting my teacher.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I grew up in a single family home, and I think i turned out pretty well… But for sure, there are tons of studies that show that generally & statistically, kids tend to turn out better if both parents are in the home. I’m amazed that people still try to argue that that’s not the case.

    SANDRA ROSE narrowed the problem down to children from single parent households who are not disciplined because there are no males present in the household.

    Make up your mind Sandra…one minute the single mothers are over disciplining their kids making the boys soft and submissive and the daughters strong and today the single mothers aren’t disciplining their kids at all

  • TheOwley

    Who is surprised by feral children and equally crazy parents. They need to go ol school. Put all their asses in uniforms, school is 8 to 5, make them all learn to write in cursive, and mid-day they get to do something about the obesity epidemic, everyone does PT and eats a healthy green lunch. We need to stop turning dummies loose onto society. Just put me in charge.

  • Ryan

    I have a friend who’s a teacher and though violence isn’t an issue parents who think their kids are perfect drive her crazy, try to get her in trouble and constantly wanna call and run up to the school cause she gave their perfect lil brat a D or F when they obviously didn’t study. I don’t have the patience.

  • Armymom20

    If more parents stood on the side of teachers this problem will probably get better.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Most Kids these days are nothing but little bad asz demons and their parents are just as bad.I wouldn’t want to teach them either. The parents are at fault because they don’t discipline their kids nor do they teach their kids to respect people in authority.It’ s also not the teachers job to discipline these kids in the classroom that is the parents responsibility at home. Teachers are at school to teach. Some parents seem to want the teacher to be parent and teacher. It just doesn’t work like that. And they wonder why little Johnny can’t read.

  • klwbaby

    The majority of my friends came from single parent home and they were far from disruptive and violent. But my thing is that some people act like women want to raise their kids alone. In an ideal world, the 2 people that made a kid would raise that kid but unfortunately things don’t always work out that way and u have to do the best u can.

    No longer will they allow Blacks to teach their children right from wrong nor hold them accountable for any negative behavior. -it’s all about making excuses to coddle bad behavior and telling parents to all their kids to wild-out aka express themselves without proper guidance.

    That agenda guarantees a world of dysfunctional Black folks “that can be controlled,” headed for CPS/DCF foster care systems & trapped in poverty, crime-infested environments with failing school systems that drives up all types of STDs/HIV & unwanted pregnancies rate.

  • Malcom Flex

    One of the probs beside black males not raising their kids is single mothers beat the hell out of their kids then the kids go to school to bully others it’s a sick cycle.

  • Malcom Flex

    No your kids aren’t taken if you spank them the kids are taken if you WHOOP them. Most black single mothers go overboard WHOOPING their kids.

  • OP2

    You don’t need a male to discipline your kids. You need a good woman for a mother who has good values & moral compass willing to teach, tutor, protect children from negative influences and properly guide and discipline children to behave their way to success because they are willing & eager to learn.

    -all too often some of those kids are acting like thugs, twerking provocatively in a suggestive manner, ready to cuss; fist-fight or intimidate others in heartbeat and will lie and steal.

    That takes a mind or certain mentality with strength and being equipped with good values & life’s lessons to pass on to their children. –Although helpful, it doesn’t take a man to do that!

    They still took the kids!

    They will even take your kids if you don’t respect their decision for gender change as well. Myself and another poster discussed this right here on this site.

    They can even take your kid if you’ve named them something they feel is inappropriate – and these were wh!te people in this instance.

Parents aren’t anywhere near as “involved” as they were 20/25 years ago…. They are just as carefree, entitled and lazy as thier children.. Some same age as well.. My mother use to tell us…im not your friend or buddy. We are not cool. Don’t drink, smoke OR curse around me. Im your mother. So act like you know or I WILL make it known for you!!! Everybody referred to her as IKE TURNER… Nuff said!!!? #DisciplineStartsAtHome #TeachersAreEducatorsNotBabysitters

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    Iza Lee( Ike Turner)…use to tell us EVERY school year in the beginning WITHOUT fail…that IF she had to leave her ongoings or ANYTHING else that she was busy doing and come to the school for ANY reason…..it was going to be the throwdown of the century!!! Teachers calling for anything short of an accident or you being hurt was a NO NO!!! Meant your life was in the balance… #Beatdowns #ActiveParenting #YoureThereToLearnNotShowout

  • ?Royalty?

    Keep up. We aren’t even on the same channel. ?
    I’m not discussing a racial issue. You are.????? The irony is comical. ??

    I’m discussing the over-reach cases CPS is well-known for. That’s it.

    When you want to discuss the 2nd issue and not the first – come find me.

    *sigh* Fix it Lord…..??

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    No one wants to hear this truth. It’s easier for them to blame the single mothers, grand mothers, aunts and female cousins.

    Black men are never held responsible for being dead beat dads and these are the results.

  • ?Royalty?

    I ran into my ex from 10 years ago. You just described his last 10 years and you dont even know him.

    That’s beyond crazy. ?There’s no way the narrative should be so well known in the community.

  • ?Royalty?

    Thank you ??????

    Kids vs schizophrenics….?

    They are pretty much the same if you ask me. I prefer to avoid both. ??

  • Li

    They need to drag the parents into the classroom while their child is being taught and see how that child will sit down and behave.

  • V Dubb

    Lol lol yeah but I can control the situation with the schizos

  • MistaO

    Please, anyone who says “parents” are to blame are disingenuous. You know full well most are out of single momma households.

  • The Chosen One

    To be honest, all that they need is a belt on their a$$es. If I had my way, I would “pootie tang” and “django” their a$$ES. that type of discipline is called understanding.

  • Not Down With The BS

    Reading is fundamental. The majority of black people THAT I KNOW. I’m in the North East.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Women MUST put themselves in a position to take care of their children whether the dad is there or not. So they won’t be angry or the children. Don’t have children, if YOU can’t provide for them. Complete yourself first, so you and the children will be ok either way. I did it.

  • Marlika

    I work with at risk youth/ juveniles ages 14-19. Honestly most of them are a lost cause and once you meet the parents or even grandparents you see that’s is a unbroken cycle of ignorance.

    Single parents household or not most of their behavior is learned from the ignorants ass parents or guardians.

    I cant tell how many times I’ve wanted to put hands and feet on the kids and parents. ??

  • anjanette b

  • deanya

    The black father’s are at home disrespecting their bm and showing their kids that they can do whatever

  • deanya

    So man hold no responsible huh

  • deanya

    Believe it or not but more dad’s are staying in their kids lives it’s just they ain’t shit lol ain’t no point of having a 2 parent house hold if all the father does is smoke and hang out with his friends or all the parents do is fight or both don’t wanna grow up and 90% of the time it’s just learned from parents to child . Everyone wants to be better than their parents but a lot don’t know how. Also these kid should have nice things and extra help because of where they come home . Nothing is more sad in life than seeing an 8yr old who already thinks he’s gonna die young or be in jail or seeing kids who never been outside the hood

  • Malcom Flex

    Logic: the penis enters the vagina not the other way around men need to wear condoms, simple. why not? stupid broke breeders

  • Malcom Flex

    Yup people all over the world know black american men dump their kids it’s a shameful running joke. Thats why so many races don’t want black males in their families unless he has money like a baller or rapper.

  • Malcom Flex

    They do they’re just crazy. BM the only race of men who abandon their sons so tough.

  • Kimberly King

    I am a high school math teacher in Houston. I work for a private school though. Public school teachers have to deal with way more sh*t than I do. Also, if a student even gets rowdy and curses at a teacher, they get expelled from our school. My principal will call the police and have a student arrested if a student gets violent with another student or staff. And he’s made that perfectly clear. The majority of the students at my school are white though. We do have lots of blacks and hispanics as well. Times have truly changed. It’s like these public school systems don’t want to punish these kids for acting up. I would hate it for the poor soul who decided to ever tried me. lol

  • Kimberly King

    And my mother was a single mother who raised 3 children ALONE. My mom was never the partying type. She worked two jobs to take care of us. All three of us turned out to be respectable, college educated people. So please stop shaming single parent households.

  • We Can Do This

    The Prison Industrial Complex is waiting for these degenerates.

    Society has a place for all.

  • Renee26

    I agree 100%

  • ShWa

    My children went to a pretty rowdy elementary school, I ended up removing my son once my oldest went on to H.S., he is doing much better in a less violent school, the children at the old school in my opinion had no good home training, and the school was just not able to keep them under control.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Most are running themselves off, my reality. Although he was not capable of being a father. My bad choice, BUT I still took care of my business.

  • OP2

    Awesome! Now, that’s what I’m talking about!! Unfortunately, there are Blacks obviously trapped in their dysfunctional environment where they can’t see beyond their horizon and assume that ALL Blacks have this ongoing dysfunctional behavior with no moral values, self-respect and plans for a positive future.

    -too bad they are blind to all the different professionals we have that are doing well and raising their kids well to stay away from bad apples or negative influences of varying sorts while contemplating their own future and teaching their children what it takes along the way to get there in reaching their goals.

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    There are plenty of parents that went to work and school part time. That is no excuse. Thier children knew the law of said household and the consequences if said rules were broken… Most parents have an excuse as to this and that. Man up! You have to deal with the cards you’ve been dealt and handle your business. They did it then…Why can’t we follow suite?…

  • Not Down With The BS

    I agree with everything you’ve stated.

    I’m glad that there are several individuals, like us, on these blogs to provide an alternate perspective. Exposure is one way a poverty stricken person can learn that there are successful paths and not just the immediate, deadend path in front of her/him. Must make major sacrifices today for future gratification.

  • Omg, that is you

    This is true. Dr. Frances Cress Welsing once said that in today’s world? people should have children after age 30. When in your teens and 20’s you’re still growing mentally. All of these emotionally imbalanced mentally immature people having children is not helping anything.

  • You’re disgusting

    You hate black people.

  • Stacey Dash

    Really? Sounds like you’re in the wrong field if you contemplate putting hands on someone’s children. Maybe they don’t like you.

  • Sad

    Your mother sounds like she was an authoritarian and stressed with life which isn’t healthy in the long run either. Beat downs and aggressive discipline techniques are part of the generational problem in our communities.

  • Because

    Harrisburg City is 80% black, but I get your point.

  • ALLMINE?

    and they want black queens in their family? lmao

  • ALLMINE?

    black queens can say NO. its considered rape if they are forced.. no black man is prying their legs open.. bw take zero accountability and they pass it on to their son’s..

  • ALLMINE?

    well well. we’re close to eachother..

  • Malcom Flex

    Oh yeh LMBAO. Eve, Iman, Serena, Halle (half), should I go on?

  • Malcom Flex

    No shaming but the reality is most have some kind of struggle and specific issues related to poverty addiction and abuse. Be for real. And lurking simps and mammies keep white people out of this The black family is on life support. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

  • Malcom Flex

    That’s a lie most black american homes are single mother lead. We’d do better as a people if more males parented their sons.

  • Malcom Flex

    Another liar. Black males are the brokest and the quickest running from child support stop lying LMBAO

  • Malcom Flex

    Black women is who that thing hates. Those simp trolls are easy to spot.

  • Malcom Flex

    You are out there but fools are too blind don’t want to see the dead culture around them they so dumb they don’t get it. Parent’s aren’t doing their jobs and teachers are quitting. No daddy to pay for private school. Prison fodder.

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    You have it all wrong.. There’s a reason why me and my siblings have manners. There’s a reason why we are not jailbirds. There’s a reason why we are independent individuals.. Get it? A mother that kept us in line and in place as opposed to letting us run buck wild and disrespect her or authority… Oh, we had space and freedom but to a certain extent. But you don’t let it go to far because then kids start to smell themeselves and start to show out… My mom was very loving but test her and you’d get broken in two…?

  • Malcom Flex

    It’s okay to have the THOUGHT the deed is what matters she doesn’t lay hands, though.

  • Malcom Flex

    Then BW need to stop breeding out of season period. Nobody currs about broke single mothers look at Houston floods all those dark skin single mothers stranded and dying no male at their side so stop breeding period.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yup the men have flown the coop don’t curr about raising good sons.

  • Malcom Flex

    You’re the MINORITY. The MAJORITY of black single mothers got some issues which is reflected on their kids.

  • ALLMINE?

    not hollywood.. real life? lol.

  • shun king

    women think they can talk crazy to a man just cause they have a child they learn a man not going to put up with that even if it mean not being with his child….100% percent of women think that a child can be raised with out a dad

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    Never stressed. Just adamant about us knowing our place and position. That self same “authoritarian” is why I am well manned, independent and not a jailbird today…Just ask yourself why the kids of today are batsh#t crazy and have the manners of a troglodyte?!?!.. It’s not rocket science..?

  • Malcom Flex

    You sound mad. Mad people BEAT kids and their kids act like jerks and the teachers QUIT.

  • Malcom Flex

    You’re a troll a white pervert or black male pervert.

  • Malcom Flex

    Jealous? You are jealous of BW. Marriage is LEGAL you dumb azz fool.

  • Malcom Flex

    You’re simp punk or a non black troll.

  • Malcom Flex

    TROLL

  • Malcom Flex

    GOOGLE you lazy fool.

  • The Chosen One

    I am a long ways from mad. I was referring to the parents need to discipline their kids. I am not going to jail for someone else’s kids, when it is their job to raise them. That is why so many kids fall through the loop and hindering their ability to learn and reach their fullest potential. You would be amazed at the number of kids, our cultural kids, having the inability to read, spell, write complete sentences, etc.

  • Not Down With The BS

    Maybe YOU should GOOGLE, r€t@rd!

    The first two results state that 60% of black children have their black fathers in the home and that black fathers are the most involved with their children (across all races).

    So keep your tired, racist tropes to yourself. Learn how to read and think critically! I’m tired of ignorance parading as knowledge.

  • Malcom Flex

    LIES YOU FOOL that study was debunked. Ain’t no FN 60% of black fathers in the home and black male don’t give a sh!t about their kids education TEACHERS ARE QUITTING, moron. You Noteps and Mammies are so dumb.

  • Malcom Flex

    I know many black kids aren’t educated. My point is if beating azz worked if whooping worked black kids would be GENIUSES.

  • Malcom Flex

  • Not Down With The BS

    Right… did you graduate from high school, Neanderthal?

  • The Chosen One

    I an an educator and see it so much with our kids. They don’t want to learn, they want to play in the classroom, catch attitudes, etc. You can talk to them all day long about trying to do what’s right and get something in their heads, but the majority thinks it’s a joke. You have a few who do want to learn and with all respect, not singling kids out, those are the ones you have to save. The real world is going to eat them alive. Just think, these are the ones who we are soon to entrust our healthcare services, welfare, etc. with taking care of us in the future.
