"It's no secret the public school system (generally speaking) has failed African-Americans and Hispanics; particularly those sitting on the low-income side of the education fence. Most of the courses, even in predominant black schools, are considered culturally biased with math being labeled the lone universal." (emphasis mine)
Really? Where is the author getting this stuff?? They haven't read Dick and Jane in public schools in... 40 years or so. And by the by, Dick and Jane are NOT racist. They just happen to live in the suburbs. What's wrong with their being white and suburban?
Not to say there mightn't ever, ever, ever be some hidden racism somewhere in the selection of children's literature. Or that overt racism in schools wouldn't be an EXCELLENT reason to homeschool your black child. We can probably all think of examples we wish we had never seen in school from our own childhoods. I know I sure can!! So go for it if that's what you want to do.
But um, no, to answer the commenters, I don't think most white people who take a job teaching in the inner city "don't care" or that the white man "thinks he is GOD." I live with a few white men, and they can be pretty self-important people, but not *quite* that deluded.
And... black people are SHAFTING the public schools when they make a CHOICE for their children? Um, isn't that what the whole civil rights thing-o was about? Being able to live equally free? You know... to make choices? This article is just all over the place. I'm confused!
And the picture is of a child in SCHOOL. What is the child pondering? My guess is, "Hmmm... I am trying to make sense of this article. Is it FOR or AGAINST homeschooling? And what does the author want me to believe after reading it?"
