Just a quarter of this year’s high school graduates who took the ACT tests have the reading, math, English and science skills they need to succeed in college or a career, according to data the testing company released Wednesday.

The numbers are even worse for black high school graduates: Only 5 percent are fully ready for life after high school.

The results, part of ACT’s annual report, indicate thousands of students graduate from high schools without the knowledge necessary for the next steps in life. {snip}

{snip}

The ACT report is based on the 54 percent of high school graduates this year who took the exams. {snip}

Under ACT’s definition, a young adult is ready to start college or trade school if he or she has the knowledge to succeed without taking remedial courses. Success is defined as the student’s having a 75 percent chance of earning a C grade and a 50 percent chance of earning a B, based on results on each of the four ACT subject areas, which are measured on a scale from 1 to 36 points.

Of all ACT-tested high school graduates this year, 64 percent met the English benchmark of 18 points. In both reading and math, 44 percent of students met the readiness threshold of 22 points. In science, 36 percent scored well enough to be considered ready for a college biology course, or 23 points.

Only 26 percent of students met the benchmarks for all four sections of the ACT test.

About 69 percent of test takers met at least one of the four subject-area standards. That means 31 percent of all high school graduates who took the ACT were not ready for college coursework requiring English, reading, math or science skills.

{snip}

When the testing agency broke down the results by race, fault lines emerged. Just 5 percent of black students are ready for college work in all four areas. Among American Indians, 10 percent are ready in all subjects, while 14 percent of Hispanics are ready. Pacific Islanders post a 19 percent readiness rate for all four subjects. White students have a 33 percent rate, and 43 percent of Asian-American students are ready for studies in all four subjects.

        You do know Jews are counted as Whites.

        Asians are well known for cheating.

        • JohnEngelman

          It is next impossible to cheat on the SAT and the ACT. The intellectual superiority of Orientals is too widely attested by too many different kinds of evidence to be attributed to dishonesty.

          • Sick of it

            They just studied more. I made superior scores without studying for a single minute.

          • Talltrees

            My reply was not posted, but there’s quite a bit on the internet about Chinese and Koreans cheating on SAT’s.

  • Jefferson

    Even Pacific Islanders like Samoans and Tongans on average have a higher I.Q than Blacks and perform better than them in school. Wow Blacks truly are at the bottom of the I.Q food chain.

    • Viking_61

      Aboriginal Australians actually have the lowest average IQ, some studies put their average IQ in the 50s or 60s, well below the Equitorial Negro at 70.

      • evilsandmich

        That’s amazing isn’t it? I guess life in Australia is so rosey that there is no natural selection for any sort of IQ ability.

        • serious123

          Interesting observation. And you are obviously correct when I think about that there is no natural selection for IQ in either the aborigines or Africans. But that does’t mean life was necessarily “rosey”. It just may mean there was enough so called low hanging fruit to allow them to eke out an existence without having to plan. The necessity to plan and think rather than killing the other guy for the low hanging fruit is what drove natural selection for IQ.

          • Luca

            The further humans migrated north of the equator and abandoned an exclusive hunter-gatherer life style, the smarter they got in order to survive. Agricultural and animal husbandry and a more diverse diet seem to have enabled us to become smarter.

            Planting, growing, harvesting, storing and transporting grain or herding, breeding, protecting and maintaining cattle requires more brain power than throwing spears and picking fruit.

            The smarter you became at farming or herding, the better you ate, the more you prospered, the more you passed on your genes and so it goes.

        • Sick of it

          An alternative perspective is that they have less of a certain kind of DNA than other groups.

        • bob

          If Australia wasn’t so isolated from the rest of the world, the aborigines would have been wiped out as a race long ago when there was no such thing as political correctness. By the time Australia was discovered by the Europeans, genocide was no longer acceptable.

  • You know, how about starting with the black high school drop out rate before worrying about college? Those fake high school diplomas doesn’t mean blacks automatically got smarter.

  • The biggest news from the new ACT results is the big decline of Native American scores. In fact, their average writing score fell to the same score as African Americans. I shall work up a good summary of the results when the SAT data comes out.

    • Sick of it

      Part of it could be those who identify themselves as Native American – Some Indians may have simply started identifying themselves as white (with historical precedent), foreigners with Indian blood may have referred to themselves as Native Americans rather than Hispanics, etc.

      • Identify as White and forego the free money? Surely you joke.

        • Sick of it

          Indian folk don’t always suck on the government teat. Plus, if they had children with white women, the child may be identified as white by the government.

      • BonusGift

        Interesting thought, I think you may be onto to the key, but it may not exactly be that. Possibly, the criteria for being an ‘American Indian’ was tightened up, but a quick Internet scan provided no evidence either way.

        • Sick of it

          Thus the conjectures. One can hardly be certain of anything related to official figures presented today.

          • BonusGift

            So true, and especially if it doesn’t fit the narrative.

  • bigone4u

    In Brown v Board of Education the Supreme Court claimed that if blacks were put in schools with whites, that blacks would perform like whites. They claimed that segregated schools were the problem. They LIED. How many white kids are held back in their learning because of having a group of noisy, smelly, rowdy, dangerous black dummies sharing the classroom with them? Homeschool or find a private school for your white children AND vote against bond issues relating to the schools. If your child isn’t molested by a teacher, he/she is going to get beat up by a black. That’s public schools, thanks to the Supreme Court.

    • baldowl

      A friend and I were today relating similar stories from our grade school years: black students showing up in class for tests, asking other students, “Let me borrow pencil.” I think that pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it?

      • bigone4u

        They did the same thing in college too. Not just blacks, but also Mexicans. “Dr., can I get a pencil from somebody?”

      • Viv Jasper

        Very few of my black students ever bothered to bring the most basic school supplies. They turned up every day completely empty handed, expecting me to provide. Our school’s policy encouraged this lack of responsibility: teachers were not to penalize the kids in any way and were told to just take care of the poor darlings.

        • GeneticsareDestiny

          I remember seeing blacks showing up to class without even a backpack and acting like it was completely reasonable to not bring a single notebook, school book, or pencil with them.

          Of course, they always had their (often stolen) iPods with them. They could never forget that.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        Ah yes, that was constant and happened on a daily basis in my school. And if you ever lent them one, you’d never see that pencil again. Either they’d take it with them, throw it at another kid, or lose it.

    • 48224

      Going back to the 1960s busing was supposed to fix blacks, more black teachers were supposed to fix blacks, free lunch programs, Afro-centric curriculum, spending more money were ALL supposed to fix blacks.
      I’m still waiting for them to be fixed…..I’m waiting.

      • FormerlyEdNY

        And they still say we are not spending enough money or doing enough for blacks. I am convinced that this will only end when the economy and then society collapses.

    • exlib93

      They prevented a lot of education with their bad behavior. It got worse in the late 1960’s and 1970’s. The teachers were terrified of them, making them useless.

      • Brian

        I was lucky to grow up in a 95% white suburb, with really good public schools. I didn’t realize how fortunate I was until years later. But I’ve seen what happens to companies when a tipping point is reached with affirmative action hires and other unfireables…general demoralization, where you realize initiative and excellence will not be recognized or rewarded, and may even be penalized, at least in the ‘tallest poppy gets chopped’ sense.

  • APaige

    I went to high school in the 1980’s in the Midwest where the ACT was the dominant test for kids that wanted to go to college in the Midwest. I am not sure if the geographical focus has changed, but it was for kids that planned on going to college-not everyone took the test. So that 5% might be just the students who plan on going to college and that is scary. But don’t worry English, Reading, Math and Science are racisss.

    • chrismalllory

    >>>The numbers are even worse for black high school graduates: Only 5 percent are fully ready for life after high school.

    Well, that’s higher than the percent of blacks who are ready for life in a civilized nation.

  • Cannot Tell

    At first the 5% figure sounded too small to me, but now that I’ve drawn the bell curve distribution of black average IQ, I see that the report’s figure is probably accurate. Only 2% of blacks have IQs above 115. The reason 5% of blacks tested ready for college is probably because only 54% of high schoolers took the ACT to begin with and that subset is probably smarter than high school students on average.

    Not that it’s not a great thing that 33% of whites are ready for college, but it seems like that’s too high a percentage. It should be more like 16%.

    • Jenkem Huffington

      After they get done dumbing down the curriculum to accommodate all the muds, it’s amazing white kids are learning anything.

      I can only imagine a day at school being like gen-pop in a state prison with the black behavior, violence, and crime.

            My grandfather just had a HS diploma, and joined Lockheed as a machinist. By the end of his career he was a supervisor of about 800 people, and KNEW how to build airplanes (C130 Hercules and C5 Galaxy mostly) inside and out. He just knew machinery and electronics. And no college. That kind of thing baffles kids today, but at that time in the 50’s, I guess a HS diploma actually signified something beyond the ability to breathe?

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        The curriculum is also blatantly anti-White — giving more fuel to hatred of Whites by blacks and other non-Whites.

        We are being dehumanized by the school curricula (and the media and the government and the justice system).

        And, those who aren’t considered human — well, they are easy to eliminate.

    • Talltrees

      I know of a high school that kind of solved the black problem. All students were placed into groups according to IQ. The bottom group was always a majority of blacks. One very light skinned black landed in the group with the highest IQ’s. He went to college and did well. The others dropped out, failed, or just made it to graduation.

      Lesson difficulty was designed with IQ in mind, much harder at the top than the bottom.

      The school didn’t care if blacks couldn’t make it. It was their problem.

  • ncpride

    My daughter did brilliantly on the ACT last year in every subject. However, I’m a big enough person to admit that her intelligence comes largely from her father who is the smartest guy I know. He’s the only one who could help with her honors Discrete math class if she got stuck, which to be honest, looks like gibberish to me. I married well.

      • ncpride

        That’s a nice thing to say, and thank you. But to give you an idea of what kind of person my daughter is, her final English paper in 10th grade was titled ‘Racial bias in the Media’, (she got an A) which was really good for a then 16 year old. Also, she convinced her high school’s chapter of the NHS to raise money for people in our own state, particularly the families in Appalachia, instead of the same tired fundraisers for Africa. I’m a very proud mom, to say the least. The way I see it, these kids are our future and it’s vital to teach them racial pride, and to throw off the White guilt thrown at them constantly.

        With all due respect, according to Jensen and Rushton, blacks are never, at any age, cognitively on a par with Whites — physically, yes, even ahead of Whites — but not cognitively.

        Black-White IQ difference shows up before 3 years of age on most standardized test batteries, even after matching on maternal education and other variables. Therefore it is not due to poor education since this has not yet begun to exert an effect.

        http://www dot vdare dot com/articles/wanted-more-race-realism-less-moralistic-fallacy

        The Peabody is a specialized verbal IQ test for the very young (down to age 2). It’s scored on the same mean = 100 and standard deviation = 15 scale as better-known IQ tests like the Wechsler, which the Peabody correlates with. And it shows that, among preschoolers, there exists the same one standard deviation, 15-point white-black average gap found in IQ among adults.

        In other words, the exact same IQ deficit relative to whites that is found among black adults and older children, exists among black pre-schoolers as well.

      15 ? I would’ve guessed 10 .

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      I believe blacks top out intellectually much earlier than age 15. Blacks who graduate high school perform at the same level as White 8th graders — but many blacks do not finish high school because they cannot handle things like 9th grade Algebra I.

      Too many blacks are promoted beyond 5th grade, which is about where an IQ of 80 will top out.

      We have no evidence at all that we know how to produce lasting increases in IQ scores after children reach school. All the data about the trajectory of IQ scores over the life span indicate that they stabilize around ages six to ten and typically remain unchanged until old age.

      Charles Murray, Real Education

      Racial-group differences in IQ appear early. For example, Black and
      White 3-year-old children in the standardization sample of the Stanford–Binet IV
      show a 1 standard deviation mean difference after being matched on gender, birth
      order, and maternal education. Similarly, Black and White 2- to 6-year-old children in the U.S. standardization sample of the Differential Aptitude Scale have a 1 standard deviation mean difference. The size of the average Black–White difference does not change significantly over the developmental period from 3 years of age and beyond.

    The gap is likely greater than discussed. Only 54 percent of the students took the ACT test. That means 46 percent did not. Those students who did not take the test were likely even lower on the academic totem pole. There probably were more blacks who did not take the test than who did. The blacks taking the test were the best they had. White people are even further ahead of blacks than this article suggests.

      What’s the latest excuse being used for the intelligence gap, not having the proper food? I can’t keep track anymore.

      • Andy

        Poor nutrition, lead paint, exposure to fewer words, fewer meaningful educational experiences, and toxic racism in the womb, in the formative years, and in primary school.

        Black children have less good food, less safe homes, and less stable homes. Their parents speak to them less, read to them less, and provide them with less mentally-stimulating toys. They are less likely to go to trips to the zoo or the beach or museums and pick up vocabulary and knowledge about the world.

        This might be a plausible explanation for race differences if it weren’t for the fact that poor black children adopted by wealthy white parents barely do any better than their peers left with poor black parents.

  • Northerner

    Blacks should theoretically have an easier time doing well in school compared to immigrants from other lands. They don’t have to learn English as a second language, nor do they have to adjust to culture shock like new arrivals do. Blacks claiming cultural bias in intelligence tests and others standardized tests is ridiculous considering that Asian students (whose parents came to the U.S. from half a world away) perform equally well as White students. It’s all one giant excuse.

    Colleges were invented by Whites for Whites, originally in Europe, and then expanded to America by the first half of the 17th century while blacks were still eating each other in the fens of sunny Africa. Why are we worried about who is unprepared to attended, other than our own White youth and teens?

    Even though we have darkness HBCUs here, based on the White college model, of course, why should we care if blacks are prepared? Let HBCUs have open enrollment and segregate buck nastys away on their campus and keep kunte kente mandingo away from ours.

    Why aren’t blacks being prepared for college in Sub Sahara Africa, Hispanics in Mexico, and Pakis in Pakistan, Indians in India, and Orientals in China?

    Why must we feel that everything that we create for ourselves is somehow magically or morally converted into the cultural and institutional property of universal non white humanity?

    This could only be happening if their were some organized, funded, vast war on Gentile Whiteness. Anthony Jacob was right. Their plan for Whiteness is total degradation and humiliation.

    The world is not our responsibility; the world’s problems only get worse when we meddle in the business of “the Other”; the world hates us, and we should hate it back, even BIGGER.

  • William Krapek

    The “white” number includes Jews, so I think the real number for whites is actually much lower. The number for white males is probably lower still. I don’t think that’s because of congenitally low IQ though. Stress tends to lower IQ; even in normally high IQ people. And whites are under a lot of stress in a lot of schools today. Especially boys.

    (Although the white people in all-white schools typically kick ass and take names.)

    Frankly I reject any study out of hand that shows whites have lower IQs than Asians or Jews. Historical outcomes prove that that is clearly not the case.

    • ms_anthro

      There aren’t that many Jews in the US, 6 million total, so the number of Jews taking the ACT in a given year might not have a significant affect on the results.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      “Based on the overall distribution of America’s population, it appears that approximately 65–70 percent of America’s highest ability students are non-Jewish whites, well over ten times the Jewish total of under 6 percent.

      At elite universities, on the basis of IQ, the ratio of non-Jewish Whites to Jews should be around 7 to 1 (IQ >130) or 4.5 to 1 (IQ > 145). Instead, the ratio is at most 1 to 1.”

      IQ is a good indicator – but it is not everything. Jews are very good with math and science – but they have not put out many great writers. Asians do very well at learning what others have already discovered – but they have made proportionately few discoveries on their own. I would not reject such tests, but history shows that other factories come into play in society-building.

    The liberal marxist hacks who run most Universities are so determined to keep up the appearance of multiculturalism, that they’ll do anything, up to and including passing blacks and latinos who have not earned the right to matriculate. The very fact that they are present on nearly any college campus proves that. If they can’t earn a degree in one of the more traditional courses of study, there’s always the academic third string like “Afro American Studies”, “Chicano Studies” and the like.

            This dogma — that all blacks are capable of doing high-level college course work — is so deeply entrenched that any deviation from it is considered heresy. I think at some point saying that blacks are one SD below Whites in intelligence will get one brought up on charges of hate speech. A lot of high-level careers in the ed dept. and universities are dependent on continuing this lie — and you are YOU to question your betters in the university? Doesn’t matter that not a one has ever set foot in a typical high school classroom, they are smarter and know more than you do (bomb maker Bill Ayers, for example).

            Facts, logic and reason mean nothing to leftoids — who are in full, complete control of the schools and able to demand that billions of White tax dollars be spent trying to prove that blacks are capable of learning at the same level as Whites.

    Speaking of cruel advice to low IQ people. Here is a conversation I had the other day with my White, Conservative, soon-to-be brother in law.

    He: People need to just be told the truth. People think I’m a bad guy because I’m honest.

    Me: So you would share the candid truth with anyone, about any subject?

    He: Of course.

    Me: Okay, suppose there is a kid at a local community college. He is taking Algebra 1 for the 4th time. He failed miserably on his first three attempts to take the course. The kid asks to you, “I really want to be a theoretical physicist someday, but I haven’t done well in my math courses so far. What should I do?” What would you tell this kid?

    He: I would tell him to try harder.

    Me: (laughing) Wow! You’re F***** up!

    He: (angrily) Oh so you would just tell him to quit because he is too stupid?

    Me: I would advise him to pursue something in which he could do well. Math is not this kid’s thing.

        I took Algebra in college. It was not considered a remedial course there and fulfilled the math requirements for the softer majors like English (not that I took a soft major).

  • fuzzypook

    I think that’s true. If whites did study as much as Asians their success rates would be closer. There is a bigger gap between average black IQ and average white or Asian IQ than there is between white and Asian. 6 points between white and Asian is not that much. I think Asians do study more. White people have other things going on in their lives than relentless pursuit of grades. However I still don’t want them in my country.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Well, there IS that pesky little thing called IQ that the schools can’t get around.

    For many years, the consensus intellectual benchmark for dealing with college-level material was an IQ of around 115, which demarcates the top 16 percent of the distribution. That was in fact the mean IQ of college graduates during the 1950s.

    –Charles Murray, Real Education

    Approximately 50% of whites have an IQ of 100 or higher; approximately 5% of blacks have an IQ of 100 or higher.

    But Don’t Panic: The new Common Core Standards will set everything right.

    Kids will be soon tested on such things as history of Islam, gender and gay studies, global warming, social justice, global citizenship, sustainability and self-esteem. Culturally sensitive spelling and grammar are not only allowed but encouraged.

    Think I’m kidding? The SAT and ACT tests are both being re-written to reflect the new anti-White Common Core Standards. This is to make sure home schoolers fall in line.

    As for the colleges — they don’t care if the kid is ready or not as long as the government tuition check clears.

    “Success is defined as the student’s having a 75 percent chance of earning a C grade and a 50 percent chance of earning a B, based on results on each of the four ACT subject areas, which are measured on a scale from 1 to 36 points.”

    How many of America’s seventeen-year-olds can meet the benchmarks? Three independent methods of calculating the answer to that question, described in the notes, lead to an estimate of 9 to 12 percent, with a realistic best-guess of about 10 percent.

    Despite repeated claims to the contrary, there has been no narrowing of the 15- to 18-point average IQ difference between Blacks and Whites (1.1 standard deviations). The differences are as large today as when first measured nearly 100 years ago. These differences, and the associated gaps in living standards, education levels etc., are rooted in factors that are largely heritable, not cultural. IQ differences are attributable more to differences in brain size than to racism, stereotype threat, item selection on tests, and all the other suggestions given by the commentators.

        I’m not quite sure what you mean by useful. There are certainly many people who aren’t interested in academic education. In the modern world, however, they certainly require technical education. Even those with a liberal arts education probably require further technical education these days. But regardless of the utility of university education, high schools ought to be graduating people who can read adult literature and have a solid grasp of basic mathematics and fundamental science. I understand that the percentage of blacks who can attain those goals is rather lower than that for whites and Asians. Of all the white people that I can think of that I’ve met in my life (not an entirely representative sample, of course), I have a hard time thinking of even a handful who couldn’t meet those standards. So it seems to me that if most young people aren’t meeting them, then we have a worse problem that I thought we did.

        • Brian

          What I mean is that there has been a devaluation of what a high school diploma signifies, what a bachelor’s degree signifies, etc. The raw intellectual materials of humans have not improved in recent centuries, and there is a limit to educability. If high schools were more rigorous (no more social promotions) as I think they were in the past, that would be enough formal, general training for many, after which people could take a job or get technical training, apprenticeships, etc. Only the fraction who a) can actually benefit from four more years (bucket has room for more water rather than spilling over the top) would need to go. Right now this universal push for a 4-yr degree and the debt that goes with it is a huge waste of money and time for many; it’s become a watered-down game of credential inflation. My grandfather, for example, didn’t go to college; it was high school, Army, then got on-the-job training at Lockheed as a machinist. 40 years later, he was in charge of 800 people and KNEW airplane construction. Now they wouldn’t even let you in the door without a 4-yr degree, _to do the same job_. That tells me that the sheepskin is useless in terms of directly applicable work information; you’re just paying to be able to get hired over the other college grad. I have a degree in electrical engineering and know there are few who could master that material. So either they don’t try, or they spend $70k to half-ass it, and come out knowing nothing practical. 115 IQ is about the cutoff for primary school gifted classes, and seems about right for the level of brain someone needs to have to get any benefit from 4 more years beyond a proper high school education.

    I agree with Engelman that Northeast Asians are more intelligent than Whites. It seems that too many Whites want to claim that Northeast Asians aren’t any more intelligent than Whites because of racial pride and/or they want to make sense of the world. While I do think that Northeast Asians are more intelligent than Whites (I’m sorry, but it’s true), I think that where we Whites have the advantage is that we are smart and crazy, whereas the Northeast Asians are simply smart. Being smart AND crazy is what gives us an advantage in terms of creativity.

    If you Google “Are Asians Creative,” you will read an article that I posted on my now inactive blog (The Pesky Truth). I think that many of you (possibly Engelman too) will agree with what I wrote.

    Culturally Responsive Teaching Example One:

    A fifth-grade teacher begins her unit on the U.S. Constitution by asking students what they know about the bylaws and articles of incorporation of groups to which they belong… African American children, who may be the most deeply involved in church activities of all the children in class, “learn the significance of such documents in forming institutions and shaping ideals while they also learn that their own people are institution-builders.”

  • Andy

    Culturally Responsive Teaching Example Two:

    The teacher learns to say “please” (e.g., por favor), “thank you” (gracias), “good morning” (buenos dias), and “see you tomorrow” (hasta manana) in the home languages of each of her language-minority children. She often uses these phrases when working individually with the children, when greeting them in the morning, and when saying good-bye in the afternoon. She publicly admires them for already being at work on a second language, and she cajoles the English-only speakers to learn a second language.

    This country’s leading multicultural education scholar, James Banks, writes:

    “Teachers are human beings who bring their cultural perspectives, values, hopes, and dreams to the classroom. They also bring their prejudices, stereotypes, and misconceptions to the classroom. Teachers’ values and perspectives mediate and interact with what they teach and influence the ways that messages are communicated and perceived by their students.”

    Banks then gives a classic example: Teachers who unreflectively ask their students questions like “When did Columbus discover America?” send a different message to students than teachers who know that America was already populated by major indigenous (native) civilizations and ask, simply, “When did Columbus come to America?”

    [First, if I discovered life on Mars, the fact that the Martians already knew about themselves would not mean that I had not discovered it. Second, notice how the authors think a significant portion of America’s future teachers will not know what “indigenous” means or how to use a dictionary.]

    Peggy McIntosh… calls this bundle of cultural perspectives, values, hopes and dreams a “cultural knapsack”. [Omitted: pedantic explanation of the “knapsack” metaphor.] McIntosh realized that as a woman and a feminist she had seen very clearly her disadvantaged social position relative to men. But as a White person she had not seen, or had denied, her own privilege relative to non-Whites. She reflects:

    “I think whites are carefully taught not to recognize white privilege, as males are taught not to recognize male privilege. So I have begun in an untutored way to ask what it is like to have white privilege. I have come to see white privilege as an invisible package of unearned assets which I can count on cashing in each day, but about which I was “meant” to remain oblivious. White privilege is like an invisible weightless knapsack of special provisions, maps, passports, codebooks, visas, clothes, tools, and black checks.”

    Never fear! My handy textbook on teaching social studies has an explanation and remedy for this gap:

    Today, schools are re-segregating, which is making matters worse by separating the urban poor – mainly Black and Latino families – from the suburban middle class – mainly White families. As a result, there are what Jonathan Kozol famously named “savage inequalities” between schools within the same metropolitan area.

    …[S]ocial-class status complicates the picture. Poor children are often held to lower standards, and students of color (especially Native American, African American, and Latino students [but not Asian students, because they are immune to the ill effects of the pervasive white racism]) are disproportionately from poor families… As a result, an achievement gap persists between White and non-White students and between students of low-income parents and other students of whatever race or ethnic group.

    [Absent from original: explanation of why poverty-stricken white children do better than wealthy black children.]

    Today’s teachers are expected to work diligently to educate the diverse children of today’s classrooms and to create more successful ways of doing so than have been developed thus far. [Because after half a century of making it a national project, no one’s come up with a way of making black kids as smart as whites.] Access to (i.e., inclusion in) high-quality curriculum and instruction is the goal. [Translation for the unacquainted: black and HIspanic kids have to be included in Honors and Gifted programs whether they’re clever enough or not.] To this end, today’s teachers arae expected to know the content and skills they are teaching – from world geography to reading-comprehension skills – as well as instructional methods that will help children learn these things. ***They are also expected to acknowledge and root out their own prejudices and stereotypes – which all of us have – and thereby to recognize the intelligence and strengths in each child.*** [In other words, convince themselves that prejudice is what’s making it seem like their senses are telling them some kids are brighter than others.]

    Asians do have a higher average IQ score, but the creative types have super-high IQ scores. There are more whites in the genius scale, therefore white are the inventors.
