excerpt: retiree/community activist
Such a shame. A nice young man, a college graduate. He was so good with the younger boys, helping with their homework, playing basketball. His family, they’re good people, too. But there are a lot of young men like Hakeem Knight around here. Lost, drifting, with nothing to do.
Why? Take a look around at this broken-down town. Shuttered or broken windows, holes in the sidewalks, no jobs. Hakeem Knight had a business degree from college and he couldn’t find any work around here.
excerpt: school admissions board member
I won’t deny that I’ve heard some compelling arguments about how affirmative action and quota systems harm poor white and Asian students. I often find that I don’t have anything to say when I hear my colleagues talk about this problem. But even so, something doesn’t sit right with me when I hear one of these diatribes. The people sound disingenuous to me. I have one colleague who always decries the plight of Asian students, but I honestly don’t think he gives a hoot about Asian students. They are convenient victims for him, statistics he can use so that he doesn’t sound like a complete racist when he’s going on about underperforming African-American and Latino students.
For myself and for the educators here in New York, the case of Maria Mendoza has brought a lot of attention—some of it unwanted, I have to admit—to how our schools provide bilingual education and to whom. What nobody really wants to talk about is the fact that this is a big class issue.
I believe that immigrant children or first generation children with immigrant parents should have every opportunity to learn English, through our school system’s bilingual programs. It makes such a difference to their future. 2011-11-04 15:01:49 GMT 2011-11-11 13:00:00 (GMT -05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 0 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.
