Blacks Lag Behind–Any One Surprised

November 11, 2010

The Council of the Great City Schools, an advocacy group for urban public schools recently published a report that finds a “jaw-dropping” gap between black boys and white boys.

The new report has found that black boys fall well behind their white counterparts in reading and math. These findings were even lower any study has previously shown. The sponsor of the recent report, the Council of the Great City Schools, an advocacy group for urban public schools, calls the findings as “jaw-dropping.”

The study found that the school performance gap between black boys and white boys could not be caused by poverty alone. The report, while many have been done in the past and proven theres a huge Intellectual gap between whites and blacks, once agains proves it.

The new York Times reported that the study found that just 12 percent of black fourth-grade boys are proficient in reading, compared with 38 percent of white boys, the New York Times reports. Only 12 percent of black eighth-grade boys are proficient in math, compared with 44 percent of white boys.

The report also says that black boys drop out of high school at nearly twice the rate of white boys, and have SAT scores that are 104 points lower, on average.

The report also cited that poor white boys do as well at reading and math as middle to upper class blacks. While research and reports constantly show that blacks do not have the cognitive abilities that there white counter parts do, you will never see an admission.

They will continue to cite every excuse they can from culture to bad home life. You can also note that this report like every other that has ever come out will be brushed under the rug and not persued any further.

HELLO, Its Genetics

    Wow! From this poorly written ‘article’, the audience is left to wonder how the writer could have been overlooked by this study.

    No one is surprised but everyone will try to cover it up or excuse it. Better, they will try to use “multi-age” classes to force bright, young white European children to do the failed job of public school teachers and use them as assistants to help the “slower” students. There will bea regression to the mean and the numbers will be “tweaked” to make it look like a success. Sickening. Deo Vindice
