Black students are not only more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools than other races from K through 12 but even preschoolers according to a recent report released by the Education Department civil rights arm.


That takes some thought. Why?

Can you imagine a teacher not being able to handle a preschooler? Maybe they need to take a close look at the teachers and administrators?

This information is all the more reason why diversity, affirmative action or quotas, whatever you want to call it, must be implemented in our schools. All schools, not just public schools but private, religious and charter schools have this problem even though the study only deals with Public Schools.

They must hire Black people who have grown up in the Black community, and have experienced what these kids are experiencing who can relate better to these kids and are less afraid of them and their parents. And just as important, they can help the White teachers and administrators understand where these kids are coming from and how to better relate to the students and parents.
