If you’re black, and you care about your children’s education, read to them. Monitor their tv and online usage. Work towards getting them into whatever private education system you can afford.
Don’t just drop them off at school and head to work. The ONLY person that’s truly cares for their future is YOU.
These new standards are racist and will result in lower achievement for ALL students. Your children’s education is YOUR responsibility!!!

“New education standards approved this week in Florida set goals for public school student performance based on race and ethnicity — with lower benchmarks for African-American, Native American, and Hispanic students, and higher ones for white and Asian-American students…According to the plan, Pre-K through grade 12 students will be assessed with their racial subgroups in mind ‘to reduce the achievement gap.’ By 2018, 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanic students, 82 percent of Native American students and 74 percent of African-American students are expected to be at-or-above grade level reading standards.”
