Brooklyn School Cutting Gifted Program to Boost Diversity

Doyle Murphy, New York Daily News, January 30, 2014

A popular gifted program will get the axe after Ditmas Park school officials chose diversity over exclusivity.

Citing a lack of diversity, PS 139 Principal Mary McDonald informed parents in a letter that the Students of Academic Rigor and two other in-house programs would no longer accept applications for incoming kindergartners.

“Our Kindergarten classes will be heterogeneously grouped to reflect the diversity of our student body and the community we live in,” McDonald told parents in a letter posted on the photo-sharing site flickr and obtained by Ditmas Park Corner.

More than two thirds of the school’s roughly 1,000 students are black or hispanic while Asian-American and white students made up 28%, according to Education Dept. records.

One mother, a Sudanese immigrant, said the program was brimming with white students—but she was looking forward to her daughter joining after years of high test scores.

Other parents and relatives picking up students on Wednesday said the school should keep the program as is.

“It’s been running like this for so long,” said 16-year-old Maruful Hossain, who attended the school as a child and now picks up his little brother there. “It will always be diverse—no matter what.”

    Principal Mary McDonald is just another in an endless line of anti-white feminazis who run the entire public school systems in this (once-great) country.

      I bet she cried herself to sleep at night obsessing over the poor black and brown children that were being left out. Now she can sleep soundly knowing she’s one of Gods precious angels.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Ms. Feminazi should explain why a gifted students program would hurt diversity since all the races have equal intelligence anyway.

  • sbuffalonative

    Magical Thinking. They believe being put in gifted programs made their children gifted.

    “Racist” policies kept their children out and kept them dumb.

    Now every child will be a genius.

    • Triarius

      No different than the cargo cult, or to a more accurate extent, a totem cult. You get the title of doctor, you ARE a doctor. You can perform all the surgeries and diagnosis of a white doctor. Apparently paper is magic.

      This is the mentality of a negro.

    They did away with Honors classes in a Chicago school a few years back because they were overwhelmingly White. I’ve said for a while now that by the time I have grandchildren, there won’t be a fit public school in this country for a White child. They are tossing our children to the curb as fast as they can. Everyone wrings their hands about black/brown ‘civil rights’ completely ignoring the rights of our children to a good education, but of course it’s in style to steamroll Whites.

    • Erasmus

      Two words: Home schooling.

      In addition to my real job, I tutor part time in Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Math, and I seeing a growing demand for quality educators, formal or informal, from people who actually want their children to learn something.

      • ncpride

        Absolutely. I often tell my kids they should prepare to home school their children, or be prepared to shell out big bucks to a private school. I prefer home schooling.

        • r j p

          Private schools are going to be destroyed as well. There are private schools in the east that are nothing more than sports programs.

          • ncpride

            It wouldn’t surprise me either if they try to ban home schooling like they have in Germany. Can’t have a bunch of educated White kids who can think for themselves, and haven’t been exposed to a ton of nonsense, can they?

          • http://www.flowsimulations.com/ Claudius_II

            Don’t forsee private schools being destroyed soon. In fact they’ll probably outlast the Republic Empire. Of course sending kids to private schools is just raising more tax slaves as nothing from private schooling is tax exempt.

          • Druid

            What is happening is as tuition goes up, private schools are reaching out for “grant” money to stay in business. Once any entity accepts one thin dime in govt. tax monies, they’re done. I watch this with my local parochial school. I despise the nun who runs our parish school. She’s nothing but a commie. So, at best, things are bad in our supposed “private” schools.

          • Berkeley Guy

            Yes, cherry-picking the worthy private schools is almost a sport in itself.

        • Brian

          What about getting 6-7 families together and having two parents working together as teachers, perhaps with different subject knowledge– one for STEM, one for humanities– and maybe 15 kids, and the non-teaching parents could chip in for supplies and field trips, or as substitute/backup rotation? Would that have to be set up as a charter school or does it still count as home-schooling? Do people do this much? Seems like you’d still get all the benefits of regular homeschooling but with more efficiency.

          • ncpride

            Funny you should post this, as my husband and I have starting discussing pulling our son from public school just this morning. I received an email from his English teacher over the weekend requesting donated books for their next ‘common core’ unit. I’ve never seen such a long list of White guilt, American bashing, victimization nonsense in my life. I’ve been researching the steps I need to take all morning, and online schools and curriculums. *sigh* I’ve read with common core, the propaganda only gets worse in high school. We’re just not going to have him fed all the nonsense for another 5 years.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Can most parents effectively home school? I couldn’t teach my kids calculus, algebra, physics, etc. if my life depended on it. And is there no value in making friends in a school environment?

        • sbuffalonative

          A normal, well-adjusted child should be able to make friends in their neighborhood.

          • ncpride

            Also, our town has a wonderful athletics club that is not associated with the schools, plus boy and girl scouts. There are plenty of opportunities for home schooled kids to interact with others their own age and make friends.

          • M&S

            SBN,

            >>

            >>

            Not if that neighborhood is seeded with voucher families of immigrants and inner city underclass and the like. Then they pick up bad habits and/or are intimidated from developing their own outlook on life.

            And not if the process of socialization is interrupted by differentiation of daily life on the basis of “School for them, home education for you.” isolation from each other during the largest part of the socialization day.

            Children develop social skills with other children because they share childhood’s experiences, not because they are innately empathic with each other’s immature status.

        • Berkeley Guy

          Definitely, it is hard for many. I believe on this site and others we should be having more talks on how to either homeschool or network so that we can help each other out. Also, the Internet will play a role in this quest for alternative, unbiased education. I have learned a lot online where my instructors or educational material were not as clear, even while going to an ‘elite’ university.

        • Erasmus

          I have no formal training as a teacher but picked up a lot of teaching skills through training people at work and through volunteer positions. (People who worked under me knew I cared that they learn the material our jobs required and that I would go the extra mile to make sure they did learn it.)

          If you can’t send your kid to a school where he’ll thrive (and such schools appear now to be the exception rather than the norm), at least with home-schooling you can help insure little Johnny or Susie doesn’t become a white ghetto thug.

          Not everyone can teach calculus or physics and not everyone needs to know calculus or physics. If auto repair, plumbing, electronics, computer repair or accounting is what someone knows, he or she should teach that. (Thorough knowledge in any of those subjects will open up job opportunities for any kid who learns them.)

          The bottom line remains the same: If we love our children, we’ll find a way to get them an education, formally or informally. Moreover, as Berkeley Guy said, lifelong learning is important, and far better for your kid to pick up that ethos from you than him or her to learn how to be a ghetto rat in a public school.

        • 1Forced_Registration

          In most Missouri districts you can now send your kids for 1-3 classes or EC’s. The schools get a kickback for it by combining total hours, and you can use it in several districts for classes at the community college (though they will fight hard to dissuade you of this option) if your kids are high school age and ready for it.

          >
          No.
          Which is why the notion of homeschooling in and of itself is worthless because it doesn’t provide enough of an intellectual base across multiple families to useful to a large enough percentage of our young people to be worth it.
          What we must do is hire teachers who are either sick of diversity and give them a goal based system that makes sense or young people who are smart enough not to be taken in by the non-sense they’ve been spewed with and yet too poor to afford a home of their own or any of the amenities that go with.
          You put those people into a home in your neighborhood. You convert their basement to a computerized learning center, complete with multiple PC learning stations and then you divide up their workday into varying year-groups of 6-8, 9-12, 12-15 and 15-18.
          Two class hours a day per group, every group goes to school at least 4 days a week and you provide a ‘homeroom’ expert in basics (3R) and psychometrics analysis to help students find strengths and weaknesses while hooking the students up to a nation-wide, whites only, ONLINE schooling system which is oriented exclusively around imprinting very high levels of concept oriented (all algebra, all geometry/trig, all differentials/calc/statistics) teaching packages so that there is no rote remedialism as a regressive helix which requires re-instruction of what has been forgotten.
          Or boredom for what has not.
          Indeed, ‘forgetting’ is limited by making sure kids go to school _year round_ with planned vacations of 1-2 weeks in the summer and Holidays, to meet the parent’s schedule rather than provide a vegetative slump for children whose minds _want_ to learn are biologically like a sponge for data. Until you turn off the tap and punish them with vacations they don’t need.
          If we could get this system going, we could have high schoolers auditing college courses and whites reseizing the high ground of university level education because they are the only students coming into the curriculum without having to have massive remedial instruction in simple things like writing and language skills.
          But it means redefining the nature of ‘home schooling’ as something which we do on a block by block basis within subdivisions of housing with professionally trained educators operating on a minimum infrastructure investment with a massively virtualized teaching presence (college students looking for a little money become online TAs to local schools where the teacher needs someone to mentor a student on a subject course he/she is not sufficiently expert in or to grade papers or or or).
          One thing we _do not do_ is confuse the ideal of developing peer based socialization skills with the convenience of institutionalized day care.
          Sticking a really smart young person in a group of normed 90-95 IQ average kids, white, black or otherwise, for 6-8 hours of sit-at-a-desk lockdown is pure sadism guaranteed to mess up whatever potential they have.
          Which is why another possible source of teaching would be women returning from the job force to a home environment where they are paid for their time as day care specialists and teacher’s aids themselves.
          We must return to having white women having at least 2-3 kids at home, without latch-keying kids before they are at least 8-9 years old. One way to do that is to reinforce the idea that they are masters of the home environment with a salary and a useful career path to stay busy, at least until their kids are old enough to look after themselves in the afternoons.
          None of this will be publically sponsored and when discovered would likely be excoriated as ‘racist’. But it is the basis of how we must first separate, internally, from the public services system whose /dependence/ cripples us as a race and a class.

          or send them to a knee-grow school,they’ll learn to be tough as nails…or be broken on the wheel

      • Berkeley Guy

        Well said, and I have also seen this particular demand increase as of late. Also, life-long learning outside of schools is important, so that we don’t become stagnant and fall to shoddy systems and arguments for equality.

        It’s funny how people don’t talk nearly as much about equal rights as they do equal outcomes. They want to control the outcomes of others in life, not reflect upon rights and responsibilities as a citizen.

      • Laura Dilworth

        Eventually, hs will be banned

        • Druid

          Correct, but it’ll be done by placing stringent educational requirements on the parents. That way the govt. won’t have to come right out and ban it. That wouldn’t look good.

          • Laura Dilworth

            if it keeps moving, regulate it

        • Erasmus

          Home-schooling may eventually be banned, as you say, but people who want their children to be educated (as opposed to just being schooled) will find a way.

          When Obama and the lefties of both parties turn the US into a 3rd world country, I envision those of us who care about knowledge and truth helping to educate, after hours, the children of Americans who know what the real score is. I see us as akin to the monks in the middle ages who kept alive the light of learning when Europe was mired in darkness.

      All the honors classes are being replaced with special ed classes to accommodate our changing demographics.

      • Fathercoughlin

        The kneegrows and the mestizoes are all “special ed”.

      • http://www.amren.com/ Michael Christopher Scott

        Special ed classes at least in theory attempt to meet the needs of the less intelligent students assigned to them. What we will see in these dumbed-down school districts instead is a stew of canned, make-believe “self esteem” directed at the Afritards, to make them proud of being imbeciles.

    • NotTooSwift

      The solution to maintaining the Gifted Program is to Affirmative Action a percentage of blacks into the class.

      This is no different than what is being done in institutions of higher learning and the workplace throughout the US.

      • ncpride

        Perhaps, but in these cases they have done away with the programs all together to keep from hurting LaShanda’s feelings because she didn’t make the Honors program.

        • Non Humans

          Im amazed that nonhumans are evolved far enough to have feelings. Emulation?

        • Ella

          I visited an honours math class but 80% were Asian in a mostly White school. You had a classroom wall-to-wall Indian. I just thought that Whites needed to work harder and get more interested in advanced Calculus. Did the school cancel gifted programs due to Asian saturation….heck no!

          • ncpride

            Reading the comments on the original article, I saw one that claimed the students in the gifted program were mostly Asian, despite the Sudan woman claiming they are mostly White. I’d say they think those two groups are ‘overrepresented’, but who knows?

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        They’ve already done similar things with AP classes in many school districts, including the one I went to, so I know from experience that doing so does not save the program. Once you put affirmative action students in an advanced class, it slows to a crawl, guaranteed, and you will be lucky if it’s even as rigorous as a regular-level class.

        This is because the teachers who teach these classes get in trouble with the administration if they fail the diversity, so they have to dumb the entire class down so at least a few blacks can pass.

        • ncpride

          If I remember correctly, the Chicago school I mentioned above was going to add ‘music interpretation’ or some other such nonsense to the ‘honors’ English class. Seriously? They weren’t even trying to hide the fact that this class would be dumbed down to the point of uselessness.

  • NoMosqueHere

    “the [SOAR] program was brimming with white students…”

    This is prima facie evidence of racism at a school run by self hating white liberals, such as Principal Mary McDonald. I guess Mary M had to hide evidence of her vicious racism. Of course, this theory makes no sense but no one cares anyway so eff it.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I have a feeling Mary MacDonald will be looking for a new job soon. Make sure she isn’t hired in your district.

    • Homo_Occidentalis

      How are rabid leftist whites like her made? What deficiencies in her upbringing spawned such a hatred for her own race?

        I call it the Quaker disease. See Wilderness Empire.

        • Hal K

          I read Wilderness Empire (partly at your suggestion, I think). The expression “Quaker disease” does not appear anywhere in the book, as far as I could tell.

          • Conrad

            You are quite right there is no mention of the Quaker disease in the book, that’s a term that I made up.
            But the Quakers and their behavior, their ideas, the way they treated their own people, the way they favored the Indians – even as their own people were being killed is discussed. I refer to this behavior as a disease because I see it as a disease of the mind that is still plaguing our race today.
            The Quakers of yesteryear are the mirror image of the Liberals of today. The same motivators, thoughts and betrayal of their own people. It seems like a disease to me.
            Thanks for taking my tip about the book.

          • Hal K

            You are right about the Quakers. Abolitionists (including some Quakers) were claiming that there was no innate difference in intellectual ability between whites and blacks before the Civil War.

          • Brian

            Easy to do when there are only three blacks in your vicinity, and they’re the cream of the crop mulatto/freemen. We didn’t have a lot of Quakers down south.

    This is just an implicit admission of what we’ve all known for a long time: Blacks and Latinos haven’t the brains to keep up with whites and Asians.

  • bigone4u

    When blacks and Hispanics can’t keep up with whites, the usual solution is to tie a big ball and chain on the ankles of white students. But you know, in spite of that ball and chain, whites still do BETTER. I guess that observation by me makes me a “white supremicist” to libtards. Well, it’s not me, it’s the facts that are waycissss, you libtard crybabies.

  • r j p

    Citing a lack of diversity …. In other words:

    If blacks can’t get in because they aren’t intelligent enough then nobody should get in.

    From now on spirit runners should hold hands so that they can all cross the finish line together so the slower runners won’t get to feel bad.
    So then why train? You might as well just sit on the couch eating bon bons, because hey you’ll get a ‘equal’ prize anyway, so why bother?

    Does not “race” mean competition? Striving to over come an adversity, engaging in a rivalry for supremacy, competing to win a prize, an honor or a privlege is what has driven us to succeed as a people.
    This move is an admission that not all groups are up to this competition and that our collective evolution is now done, as the struggle is now over, time to put your feet up people as there’s no point anymore.
    There will be no more winners, because we can no longer tolerate the concept of losing, except in physical activities for some reason, (hmmm I wonder why?)

    We should no longer call ourselves the human race,
    but instead we should call ourselves something like the human…. wane, abate, dwindle, degeneration, ebb, fall, slump.

    E.g. Diversity has turned the human race into the human slump (well in the West anyway). As others have said before diversity equals mediocrity.

    • Non Humans

      That title of human does not extend to all of the groups you mentioned. Blacks are not human. I will say that they are advanced primates.
      .
      It would be nice if this was realised universally. The improvements that could be made if we would stop wasting resources and attention on the wastes of flesh would be astounding. They need us, we have NEVER needed them!

    • Tarczan

      A few years ago there was an honors program for blacks, kind of like National Merit scholars, only for darkies. The Cleveland Plain Dealer used to publish the winners of both awards until they became embarrassed because the black awards were obviously a watered down version of the white awards, with much less academic rigor required. I can’t remember the name of the program.

    They should apply the same logic to sports and get rid of any team that isn’t diverse enough.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Yes, they wish to abolish ours, read kill us all in the name of equality.

  • The Final Solution

    I remember having a conversation with a middle school principal at a bar one time about this very subject. I was trying to explain how little sense it makes to put all of the money and attention toward the underachievers while the talented and gifted students were mostly ignored. She couldn’t grasp it. There’s so much propaganda in the education system about “disadvantaged” and “underserved” students, closing the “achievement gap” it’s madness. They are too stupid to even think that the achievement gap will never be closed as long as low-IQ children continue to flood into this country. They will just keep coming and coming, the third worlders will never stop breeding. Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcomes.

    • pcmustgo

      This isn’t just about diversity. I attended a lily white school system where gifted and talented programs were almost non-existent and the emphasis almost entirely revolved around helping slow learners. “Group learning” was a big trend back then. That the smart kids would teach the dumb kids. Or just do their work for them. So it’s just anti so-called elitism, anti-IQ, anti-high IQ. Even dumb whites resent smarter whites. Admitting anyone is more intelligent than anyone is offensive to some.

    • MBlanc46

      I suspect that it’s very unlikely that anyone with views such as yours (or mine) would ever be able to complete an education degree. You’re life would be made so miserable that you’d quit, unless they booted you out first.

    I’ve begun to hate the word “equality.” It used to have a positive connotation, but nowadays there’s so much of this lower-the-bar stuff that the very idea makes me sick. I want to see excellence, not mediocrity. The devotion to “equality” encourages the latter.

      It is ironic that those who tout equality all went to college to rise above the hoi polloi. No one wants equality; otherwise, why do they work so hard to earn more than the Joneses? The next time a liberal brings up equality to you, tell him he is a hypocrite.

  • antiquesunlight

    Infuriating. This is just the beginning of the oppression of the brilliant by the stupid and mediocre. If you’re really smart, but everyone around you is mediocre or worse, it requires a strong will to achieve your potential. That’s one of the real benefits of gifted programs: it allows the smart kids to synergize.

      Every kid, smart, mediocre, whatever, should be allowed to have an environment that is in their comfort level. It has been the oppression of every one above sub-par for the past 45-50 years.

  • WR_the_realist

    Again we see how diversity is our strength.

    • paul marchand

      Diversity is our death. All we want is FREEDOM. Is that too much to ask? That was the whole reason for the founding, back c. 1776.

    • SFLBIB

      LOL!

    “More than two thirds of the school’s roughly 1,000 students are black or
    hispanic while Asian-American and white students made up 28%, according
    to Education Dept. records.”

    ——————————————————————————————————————–

    The parents of those White students should hang for sending their children to such a hell-hole .

    • WR_the_realist

      Certainly white parents should take their children out of that school now because the recently cancelled gifted programs were the only way for hardworking whites to escape the diversity.

    This sentiment of ‘leveling the playing field’ has been sought after and implemented half-heartedly the world over throughout history. There are always movements to equalize groups of people, whether by class, political status or otherwise. But the differences of not only individuals but groups of people has always asserted itself in reality–meaning that people, all people, know deep down inside that no two people or two groups of people can be equal. Inequality is a fact instantiated in each and every organism, and is something we all innately understand. What will happen is that a lot of people will say a bunch of words to argue about leveling the playing field, some people will change their behavior to align themselves with being ‘good’ according the arguments given without questioning them, and then most people will do what they can to compete silently or at least quietly against others while nodding and smiling about equality. We all know this.

    The founding fathers spoke of natural aristocracy. No program or system is going to change the fact that people, like all organisms, want to compete and do better than others. This is why communism, and anything implemented resembling communism, has and will fail.

    I’ll nod and smile those people wanting to equalize me or my children with others, and then I will just seek new ways to differentiate and have a better life. I think we all will. And if someday this country really does become in some way an instatiation of communist sentiments, then other countries will take the lead as we fall behind. I am willing to bet that never happens though, since such things have already been tried elsewhere and failed spectacularly.

      “…perhaps some people will say that I am not ‘good’ and that I am bad…”

      You could remind them of their own stated belief that morality is relative, so there cannot be a ‘good’ nor ‘bad’ person. ; )

      • Berkeley Guy

        Everything is just a social construct, and nothing really exists ad infinitum ad naseum ;)

        • SFLBIB

          Even quantum gravity is a social construct. See The Sokal Affair, en . wikipedia . org/wiki/Sokal_affair

          • Berkeley Guy

            I know.

  • DudeWheresMyCountry?

    “Reflecting the diversity of our community” translation: we can’t have a meritocracy because Black and Brown children can’t compete. Anti-White discrimination, period.

    • paul marchand

      Black pathologies and underachievement……whites pay and run.

    Read the comments on the original link. Some whites are finally waking up and seeing the price of diversity.

    • paul marchand

      With a diminishing portion of the voting population, might be too late. At least in ref to the vote.

    In the late ’70s I started in GATE, they changed the name to Honors in the early ’80s, then to AP Honors by the time I finished high school in ’85. The programs couldn’t have been cheaper for the school; they had to be, because Riverside California schools were groaning under the weight of bilingual education mandates even then. As relatively advanced students we required special books, but we had to buy them ourselves – I still have my dog-eared copy of Strunk & White’s Elements of Style. So I honestly don’t see why dividing up the students by ability should cost any more than not doing so.
    .
    (Come to think of it I remember there was an optional trip to Europe in senior year to see the art museums etc. that the saintly Latin / Art History teacher organized on her own. Students with well off parents could enjoy that, $1500 being a lot of money back then and way beyond my means.)

    Soooo sad. So if we can make blacks smarter, we will just dumb down everyone. Good God, is anyone awake?

      tax revolt, or constitutional convention.

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    Are we rewarding the poor achievement, poor motivation and poor assimilation of the untermench? They have turned their backs on our culture, perhaps we cut them off from all forms of Welfare?

    • paul marchand

      tax revolt

  • John K

    The welfare rats want another raise.

  • Truth Teller

    The Catholic parish school tuition is often divided in half, tuition and a “charitable donation” The donation is tax deductible which helps with taxes. It is very true that any oney from any govt entitity means diversity diversity diversity. Grants from the foundations such as Ford, MacArthur etc coe with all sort of anti White commie strings.

      “diversity diversity diversity”

      Diversity is the modern version of the emperor’s new clothes. Like everyone was cowed into agreeing that his clothes were magnificent, everyone today is cowed into parroting that “diversity is our strength”.

  • Truth Teller

    Every voucher kid who gets a place in your children’s neighborhood school means there is no place for your child in the neighborhood school.

  • Aaron997

    Didn’t evil racists predict this half a century ago, and the PC crowd today still says that they were wrong?

    • paul marchand

      Willful blindness…due to being on the take.

    Our diversified district buses between schools and evenly redistributes low income children to receive generous federal grants. So, upscale neighbourhoods can have up to 12-20% low income children. If they can academically keep up with other Asians and Whites, I would not complain so much but there is reality. Scores and State placement have already been sliding downwards just in 3 years!

  • Chris Granzow XI

    If you need proof that they don’t care about furthering the achievement of white children, look no further. They want all whites to be as dumb as the lowest common denominators.

    • paul marchand

      that definitely is the obvious intent of continued lack of * freedom of choice *.
      The result is to chase whitey out, looking for the ” last niche “.

      • paul marchand

        Why does whitey run? Crazy? Or realization of black pathologies ? ( murder rate 10x that of whites, inter-racial rape { according to Ann Coulter} thousands ( yes, 1000s) of times the reverse)

  • Alexandra1973

    I was in a gifted program in junior high. It was all Whites and Jews, and all they cared about was indoctrinating us with liberal nonsense, now that I look back.

    It seems to be “common knowledge” that liberals are intellectuals, and conservative Christians are backward and stupid. Well, I must have a high IQ and I’m a conservative Christian. LOL

    Do the libtard school officials imagine these kids are going to grow up to compete with China, Japan and Korea in high-tech fields, or are they going to become janitors, waitresses, welfare-soaks and prison inmates?
