Keith S: My son-in-law is a white liberal leaning Teacher in a economically depressed area middle school, the code of conduct and academic achievement expectation is set much lower then in predomatly White schools. He says many students are disruptive and rob others of precious teaching time... but its become accepted and the norm. He tells me he's feared for his safety numerous times but stays because there's also a great many students who want to learn and he's trying to effect positive change. .. I admire his resolve. My point is if Blacks as a whole want improvement their expectation of themselves need to improve too. Obama talks a lot of pretty talk, but CHANGE takes effort, excuses really serve no purpose in the big picture... you either come to school to learn or you don't ...by the time a student becomes a teenager it's time to hold them accountable for their behavior instead of allowing them to socially contaminate their peers and the learning environment.
