You know if I didn't read this one for myself in a mainstream publication I would have thought someone was just making a joke or being sarcastic… but, well read it for yourself. 

"In the first semester of the 2019-20 school year, the San Diego Unified school district board discovered that 20% of black students had received a D or F grade. In comparison, 7% of white students earned the same failing marks. School officials decided that the 13% racial disparity was a function of systemic racism, requiring an “honest reckoning as a school district.”

In October, that “reckoning” led the San Diego board to vote unanimously to “interrupt these discriminatory grading practices.” Rather than attempt to replicate the factors empowering the 80% of black students who achieved passing grades, the board’s first action to “be an anti-racist school district” was to dumb down the grading system for all. Under the new protocols, all 106,000 San Diego students are no longer required to hand in their homework on time. Moreover, teachers are now prohibited from factoring a student’s classroom behavior when formulating an academic grade."

Let that sink in a for a few minutes. Where 80% of black kids are doing fine within the system as it is. They decided to blow up the whole system due to the 20% of black kids that were struggling. Is this the clearest indication of late as to how common sense is not all that common?

The goal should be excellence for all, so let's look at the 20% see why they are doing poorly and see how we can fix it, or at least attempt to make that number smaller. Nope let's just blow the whole thing up and those that were doing well in the system don't have to try at all anymore. Hell don't worry about handing in your homework, what you brought a knife to school and threatened someone, don't worry it won't affect your grades at all. 

I guess this is what you get when you all social justice to grow in every possible institution. These people are literally bat shit crazy
