racist behavior

Artists who painted a mural at an elementary school in Prescott depicting four students, with the most prominent being a Hispanic boy, were asked to lighten the faces amid taunts and tensions.

R.E. Wall, the artist who heads the Prescott Downtown Mural Project, told a local newspaper passersby regularly shouted racially charged comments at his group while they were creating the mural at the Miller Valley Elementary School.

"You're desecrating our school," "Get the ni---- off the wall," "Get the sp-- off the wall," were common, Wall said. "The pressure stayed up consistently," Wall said. "We had two months of cars shouting at us."

Yeah, it's racist. Let's hope those responsible will chill, and their tempers and reasoning will change. If not, then more than likely, there will be some bloodshed, kids bringing guns to school, etc.

For 2 days now, at my son's high school, cafeteria food fights and Security could not break them up. My son got hit in the back of the head with a juice bottle....

Same thing at my other son's elementary school....food fights. Blacks & whites fighting....school is out in one more week here. I'll be glad to see the end of it! It makes me angry, that my boys go to school everyday, for an education...and this happens! Bunch of punks!

Cafeteria food fights....seems to happen every year when school is almost out, but sometimes just happens at random....They throw food, trash cans, etc., anything they can find to throw....just for the heck or hell of it, not caring if they get suspended since school is about out.....Duval County has also had several "bomb threats"....my son was very late coming hom from school, via the bus. I was getting ready to jump into the car to see what was going on, and if he was walking home, or whatever....He said a bomb threat was made, and the buses had to be searched...no bomb was found. It was on the news that night.....He asked to be allowed to walk home, but students were not allowed to do that. They had to wait for the buses to be searched.

School will be out in Duval County June 11th. My son has 3 more years of high school....We send our kids to school for an education...and this is what we get!

We had the same issue in our school district although not in my hometown - it was pretty all white school so racism wasn't prevalent but the school in other town was half-black and half-white and the racial tension was really bad - even started fighting at the football stadium.

That's why I am thinking that perhaps it's better for all kids to be in segregated schools based on race and culture. Their cultures are so different to the point that it creates tension.

My mother said that she never had issues with "blacks" all her life even though she was in all white schools. She didn't even think about "racism" and said that none of her white friends whom she grew up with said anything bad about blacks. When she started meeting friends outside of her environment, she was shocked at how people were being racist and all of them were from mixed schools.

I dated a girl from Montana for a while. She was shocked by the level of racism here. But then when you consider that Missoula is over 90% white???? Why would there be racial tension there? At the same time when I travel to MS or AL I am shocked by the racism there......it appears to be much worse than here. Quite a bit of racism in Hawaii too...But it is aini=white racism there. So again....

Also as far as schools are concerned......I would prefer to describe it more of a culture clash than actual racism based in hate......IMO there is a difference.

The one thing that is certain is our schools are out of control. Instead of doing things necessary to insure students have a safe place to learn, school districts are debating t-shirts, evolution and sneaking kids off campus for abortions. Not to mention the teachers are becoming predators themselves. I am glad my kid is out of school now.

Debating evolution? It should be required in public education. My mother was taught evolution in her Catholic school. Hardly an issue. It's the religious fundies that got issue with evolution, an established fact.

Abortion? Well, doesn't that tell you that they need sex education? Parents aren't doing anything... and studies repeatedly show that a majority of kids say that their parents never taught them about sex even though the majority of parents claim they did. Most parents don't know what they're talking about. Kids would RATHER learn from sex education teacher than from their parents.

I wasn't trying to throw more issues into the thread....

Merely stating that student safety is the elephant in the room that no one is paying attention to because of debates elsewhere......

No way, it won't solve the issue and more unfair.

I had been grew up in mixed school and hardly to experience about racist issues.

Well Foxrac...my guess is that ur out of elementary/high school now....and didn't attend any Duval County schools!...It's been going on here seems like forever.....as for me, I went to NCSD and there were only whites there at the time....we did have a few Indians, but no other races.
I'm not saying that other races are the problem....if I actually knew what the problem was and is....I would do my damnest to solve it, as my boys have to attend school regardless of what goes on there....I'm not qualified to home school and cannot afford a private school.

Parents can complain and raise hell...that's all we can do. Enrolling them into another school won't work either, as the same thing goes on there.....

My son said at that cafeteria fight, 3 security guards still could not control / contain the food fight...the cafeteria was trashed and totalled....they did have it on video, and quite a few students got suspended for the rest of the year (only 1 more week of school)....NO BIG DEAL!....Why not suspend them from all Duval County schools???? For the next year??....That might force the parents to do something about their out-of-control kids!

Send the kids to privte school with the tax savings or scholarships or charity.....or home school.

It's funny that Public school costs more per student than private school in most case.

I graduated from high school in 2006 and haven't experience any issues at public school, except for language complication and some fighting issues. There was no food fighting at my old elementary, middle and high school, it should be depends on school district. I do favor in strict rules for students and more punishment like in school suspension, it means kids wouldn't have a nice vacation at home and some parents are much strict for suspended students. Food fighting is unacceptable and they should have severe punishment that may work. I'm suggest you to talk with education board and what's see if they could change their school policies.

Home school, out of question because I'm not a good teacher.

Private school, out of question in here because rest of private school in here is religious. It don't meet my secularism needs.

I don't care about price ratio on between public school and private school, I prefer to have public school to have basic education needs and doesn't cost much taxes, IMO.

The issues about public schools are varies in regions, some are worse, some are best.

Really? I consider this alot....And this is just DC

Quote:
For the current school year, the local operating budget is $831 million, including relevant expenses such as the teacher retirement fund. The capital budget is $218 million. The District receives about $85.5 million in federal funding. And the D.C. Council contributes an extra $81 million. Divide all that by the 49,422 students enrolled (for the 2007-08 year) and you end up with about $24,600 per child

The taxes for public school are come from everyone, that how they got more cost per student and public school does have special needs that could cost more. When I was student at public school and I do have special needs, such as interpreter, notetaker and face to face teaching sometime.

My sister, an agnostic, home-schools her son, now 13 - he has never been to a school. She's extremely well educated (always make straight A's in school, including college). She's also a health freak so she believes that he should be eating good food. She just doesn't think a public school is conductive to a healthy environment for kids.

Part of the problem is that there is no "A" problem.

An underlying problem is that we are an egalitarian society with a school system based on a time when "The masters were educated and the lower classes were kept ignorant."

Instead of having a school system structured along the lines George Washington Carver set out we have a school system dedicated to the concept "Become educated so you can earn more money (note money, not education, equals superiority); become a leader (why not just say "Master" and be done with the charade), and leave the uneducated working class behind.

But there are some very obvious surface problems:There are a lot of problems and there are a lot of solutions.

One of the problems is keeping kids in school who do not want to be there simply because the school gets government money if they are in school and none if they are not. I was one of the kids who did not want to be there. I told a teacher, "I don't want to be here and you don't want me here. Let me go home and we will both be happy." She replied they needed the funding. So my response was, "Then you can earn your money and like it."

My wife tells a story about a kid whose only goal in life was to be a cat skinner like his dad. That is what he grew up to be. Made top money at it too. Why did they make him go through 4 years of high school when he could have been earning good money instead? Because the system didn't care about his life or his money. Only what the school could get in funding.

One really big problem is the school system (not necessarily all the teachers) have no concept of how to motivate children or adults. Their solution is to bully the children into learning what the school wants them to learn at the time the school wants them to learn it.

Souggy ran a video on what motivates people in the workplace. It also motivates kids in a learning environment. School boards should study video games on how to motivate kids instead of condemning them as "pointless pass times." They might learn something -- And it might also solve the problem of so many kids who only want one thing in life -- To escape school.

Another is the schools inability to handle any social problems at all. Whether it is bullying, inappropriate behavior, or lack of interest. They either attempt to bully the students into acting the way they are expected too or they punish everyone for the actions of a few.

An example of that took place here. Some deaf kids were in a school annex. When my daughter was young she went over and helped the teachers there and enjoyed it. A week ago when my grand daughter was asking me about sign language I suggested she go do the same and make friends with some of the deaf kids.

But she says that is no longer allowed because some hearing kids, under the guise of helping, bullied and made fun of the deaf kids.

Were the culprits punished?

They were given a verbal reprimand and the rule was made no hearing kids could go over there at all for any reason.

So who was really punished? As usual -- Not the guilty -- Everyone but.

Social responsibility should be just as much a requirement in school as knowledge of the material. Just because a bully can pass the test, or play sports, is no reason to pass them as having "a high school education." If they can't do their share of the work and help younger children who need assistance then they do not belong in the school system benefiting from it.

And speaking of sports -- Shouldn't the math whiz and the top science major get just as much acclaim and reward as the quarter back and the pitcher? If the school system wants the students to respect school subjects then maybe they should respect those who excel in them.

I could go on, but I think I hit the high points.

Sorry for the rant, but I really believe this country will stand or fall because of its educational system. And I'd really like to see it succeed.

Then allow school vouchers. Allow parents to decide on what kind of school their kids can attend and where.

Why not make the parents pay for the damages, and make the kids do community service?

I don't think suspension (other than in-school suspension) is much of a punishment if the kids don't enjoy school in the first place.

That is the point. Me and a friend used to get into fights in front of the teachers all the time. We'd get suspended and the teachers never seemed to notice we jumped on our bikes and headed to town together laughing all the way.

But why keep us where they weren't going to bother to educate us anyway?

Why up to the state? Why not up to the parents?

Is the child the parent's?

Or the state's?

Or the federal government's?

Or at some point should the child belong to themself?

because states are in charge for public school so it should up to state to make decision to offers school voucher, if state wants to allow to do then parents can have choice.

I'm against on school voucher because I don't want my taxes go to religious private school.

Not saying I agree or disagree, just that I understand.

Because racist behavior is basically rebellion against the school system and against most of the tenets of public education -- That of equal opportunity for all.

Racist behavior is part of the overall school system, its failure or success. It is not isolated from the basic fabric of the rest of the problems in the school.

When students are frustrated and dissatisfied they become rebellious, angry, and intolerant of others. Those they choose to go after are those who are "different" and who are most accepted as targets by their friends and family.

In this case they are taking their ire out on racial minorities. At another place and time it might be left handedness or disability or other "difference".

It is common for people to take their frustrations out on the easiest and nearest target as demonstrated by many married couples who meet every one of life's challenges by fighting with each other.
