Avoiding the elephant

It's remarkable how this article on 10 reasons why things are going wrong with public education didn't mention the single biggest problem:
Something is wrong—very, very wrong. Teachers across the country at all grade levels, in all subjects, teaching a wide variety of student populations, can sense it. There is a pulse of dysfunction, a steady palpitation of doom that the path we are on is not properly oriented.

There is a raw and amorphous anxiety creeping into the psyche of the corps of American teachers.

We may have trouble pinpointing the exact moment when something in our schools and broader culture went wildly astray, leaving in its wake teachers sapped of optimism and weighted with enervate comprehension. The following is a small sampling—this list could easily have been twice as long if my conversations with fellow teachers are any indication—of problems that teachers were not facing ten years ago.

Every failure of civil society—institutional rot, political cynicism and polarization, tattered family and other filial relations, depressed expectations of student behavior, a preening and non-apologetic narcissism, extravagant self-regard, anti-intellectualism in our minds and moral relativism in our hearts—manifests itself in our schools. The result is a weight of responsibility, an anvil of obligation, now pushing against the outer periphery of what schools can realistically achieve given their inherent limitations. It is no headline to announce that schools mirror the dysfunction of society writ large. With this in mind, I offer the following list of ten things teachers did not have to deal with just a decade ago.
Translation: the percentage of white American students is now too low to maintain the pretense. There is no longer a "school community", or even a "town community" thanks to the post-1965 immigration. Sure, all the educational fads and new management philosophies don't help, but none of those things would have made much of a difference in your average 1950s or even 1980s suburban high school.

This isn't really debatable. The busing battles of the 1970s and 1980s was fundamentally based on the idea that blacks, Hispanics, and other minorities can't be successfully educated without being surrounded by a sufficient number of whites. So, what are they going to do now that they are running short on white students?

I suppose that the one thing they cannot do is admit that a shortage of Whites, or excess of Others, is a problem.

Single parenthood, and the necessity of dual incomes in married households, means that Johnny sorry, er Loquacious, is minded by digital devices and not a parent when outside the classroom. Loquacious isn't being read to, playing outside, or socializing in person. Ma imposes demands on the school to operate as a surrogate parent. This is the mature brontosaurus standing in the education room.

Do Not send your kid to government nor societally converged private schools. They are poison!

OpenID citizenoutkast April 17, 2018 8:21 PM  

I have read Vox since the WND days. I comment rarely and have shared some memes I've made that I try to use to educate conservatives. I come here to learn, and have done so a great deal.

I am also an elementary school teacher in a district that has a large Hispanic population. I teach in an almost all Hispanic school. "Almost" because there are some dindus and I think I saw one white kid a few years ago, but he has since transferred out. I did my "teacher learning" in a white school, and I can verify that there is a HUGE difference.

Even in the grade I teach, you can see how low the students are. Things younger white students can do is still beyond these Hispanics. Asian students would trounce them if we had any. Excuses of every kind are made by the leftists in charge, and many teachers parrot them, but some know. Even in my smallish school I know about six or seven that are "woke" about race differences.

Our district has pretty much segregated the Hispanics, though, to artificially boost up test scores. At least that gives the white students a chance, although once they all get to high school, they are crammed together so the lovely diversity is an all day long enjoyment.

One thing about the Hispanics that is not the case with the dindus, though: I never see any belittling of Hispanics that (relatively) achieve higher grades. Dindus will pounce on such trying to elevate themselves. The Hispanics just aren't on the desired standard, to put it politely, but don't drag each other down to maintain a low common denominator.

I can also attest to the low intelligence of teachers. I'm no genius, and I have nothing to contribute here except maybe some memes I sometimes make out of comments I see and the things I learn, but the teachers around me....reality just isn't their forte. To a limited extent, the whole "book smart but no common sense" saying applies. I say limited because I don't think they're even that book smart. Nice people, and hard to imagine them wanting anyone dead even though they are on the left to different degrees, but still.

But, all that said, if my students were even equally mixed with whites, it wouldn't help at all. It would drag down the whites and cause them to absorb the behavior of the diverse. It's truly a damned shame that human nature constantly wants to degrade itself, making it attractive for whites to lower themselves, so nationalism is really the only human way to defend against it.

It's hard to have a school system with the 70-30 ratio of Whites to minorities favored during the era of forced busing when your policies drove all the whites to the suburbs and rural counties and only 30 % of your students are white now.

Also the mandatory support for special ed. That's as crippling as any race issue.

Blogger Wild Ape April 17, 2018 8:58 PM  

@citizenoutkast---I'm seeing the same thing at my high school. The AP students are 90% white. They spend a fortune on illegals to teach them English because they get a lot of Federal dollars. As the demographics grow more non-white the test scores plummet. I see the same thing with mixed classes that you do in regards to them imitating the dindus. I used to think that Vox was over the top but I'm seeing things the same way now. The bullying that goes on is often along racial lines and the admin wants to look the other way instead of calling it what it is. Biblical allusions mystify nearly all the students. They don't know about Moses, or the surmon on the mound or anything. How the hell do you teach history or literature without knowing the reference? When they teach Common Core they really are teaching to the lowest common denominator because Federal money is at stake and "No Child Left Behind" is not a motto but a commandment. In fact, No Child Left Behind really means that they will throw white kids under the bus if that is what it takes to keep the dindus in school. What is scandalous is that my school is one of the best. Public education is a sham. Homeschool your kids if you can. Put them in private schools if you can afford them. Move to a better neighborhood if your school has bad demographics is my private advice. Most kids read at a fourth grade level at best and even the smart ones are just slightly above grade level. Classroom discipline is at an all time low and although it can get lower, there isn't much lower it can go. I agree with you 100%.

As we know, it is best to home school, and if not a mainly white school with lots of help from mentors and smart parents can work. There are three or four schools around my area where white kids can still get a decent education, for now. This is all dwindling away though, as it takes more and more money to afford housing in such areas, and usually two decent middle-class jobs, and one of the parents has to be very intelligent to boost their kid at an early age, while still working long hours.

A teacher friend, who taught is a school just a few miles away (we play chess some times), tells me how he loved teaching up until about a decade and a half ago, but before retiring about 7-8 years ago, he had hated it for several years. This was a suburban school in a slightly less prosperous area.

Oregon is one of the whitest states in the country. It also is at the bottom of test scores and graduation rates. It has incredibly high numbers of kids in “alternative” schools because of behavior. The whitest districts are the most rural, and they in turn have the worst outcomes.

I won’t disagree unchecked immigration and forced social integration contribute greatly to the failing system of public education, but something else, something bigger, and something more universal is causing these results.

Everywhere the federal gov has increased its influence, the system in question steadily decreases in quality and outcomes. In systems where a third party non-participant is the primary payor, and the funds used come from an even more distant fourth party, it is a guarantee quality over time will decrease.

Theodore Dalrymple always has the go-to quote/answer:

“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is...in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”

BTW, the schools I talk about, obviously are still converged, but hat's not their main focus, yet. Two-thirds of the kids education is still real, especially when it come to STEM, music, sports, and such. I know a couple of boys taking Calculus (college credit) in their sophomore year, and they are also into sports and music and other activities. They can take Engineering courses and high-level science courses too.

Oh, I can assure you racial and ethnic integration, where it exists, is the primary driver of the decline. The public high school where I live was destroyed via forced busing in the Eighties, and now the place almost exclusively is black/Hispanic. The upside is upscale vibrants don't move here because the public high school is substandard. Anecdotal, sure, but one you will hear anywhere this has occurred. If there is a universal cause, that's it and not some outlier in rural Oregon.

Since 9/11 federal dollars spent for local law enforcement have skyrocketed and look at the quality of policing today. Some trustworthy financial advisors have said there is another housing crash just around the corner, and what percentage of mortgages are now federally guaranteed- 90%? Bush 2 also dramatically raised the number of federal dollars spent on healthcare with Medicare part D, and the amount for education with NCLB. Obama doubled down. For all the talk of welfare reductions with Clinton, I’m almost certain the ratio of federal to state dollars increased. These are just a few examples.

This is a constant refrain with Steve Sailer. They're running out of white folks. The system doesn't work without them.

They keep coming up with crazy schemes like "affirmative fair housing," but it's a losing proposition.

Simultaneously, there's a war on whiteness. We're depriving white people of identity, "privilege," and history. Plus, we're flooding the country with other races that the persecuted whites will have to support.

Leave it to our stupid elites to reconcile these two big picture facts perfectly and without any mental distress.

A friend earned her degrees education. All about social equality and political plurality. Then she spent two years in an inner city school in the South. The classes were, literally, unteachable. Gangbangers and 14-year-olds who could barely read at a 1st grade level. The admins offered help, provided she would sleep with them.

She now teaches at a 75% white/20% Hispanic rural, dirt poor public school. The outcomes are still substandard. The population of teachable and verifiable humanity in the classroom and faculty lounge is a considerable upgrade.

The single biggest problem is that we created the modern public school for a purpose, the job is finished, and we've never retooled the schools to stop doing the job. If you have the purpose of education wrong, it doesn't matter who comes through the doors to either teach or learn, you're going to have trouble. We need to figure out what is school for.

I agree. Several years ago the wife was a teacher at a private "elite prep school." Almost all the students were white. To make a long story short, she was let go because she wanted to challenge and actually teach her students. When the kids found out that she wanted to have them read literature and write essays instead of filling out worksheets, they squealed to their parents. The parents - who were paying significantly more in tuition than most public colleges cost - went ballistic on the school admins for overworking their children. Net result: elite prep school kids ended up with an English curriculum that is simplistic compared to what you'd likely find in a homeschool curriculum. Apparently there are a large number of wealthy parents who are willing to shell out big bucks so that their children have impressive credentials but no meaningful accomplishments.

Sure, this is only one anecdote. But if some of the wealthiest and most accomplished among us have decided that they're satisfied with their children faking their way through life, it suggests a very deep level of social decay.

Blogger Daniel April 17, 2018 10:26 PM  

It is multivariate. Primarily, it is that the modern public school as we know it is in the death throes. It is an idea that, like communism, kind of worked if you squinted, for a while.

But its primary social contribution was as an artificial labor suppression device. Once the borders were unlocked, this supression effect was neutralized by free trade.

It wasn't going to "work" forever in any case. But the abandonment of Christianity, the Federal takeover, the social engineering and the malinvestment in the stupidest citizens simply accelerated.the failure.

Probably more important than all that, to what extent are those school ranks affected by school system cheating? Could it be that Idaho (93.5% - 47th) has an epidemic of honest school administrators, while Mississippi (59.4% - 48th) has an epidemic of dishonest school administrators?

@23 If those state rankings are the usual rankings, then they are pretty meaningless in terms of actual performance of schools. Various teacher union groups release rankings that are mostly set around school spending. I'll use Idaho as an example because it shows up on your list. A state like Idaho ranks #47 nationally because it doesn't spend obscenely on public schools. Cost of living is also lower than average, which is part of why Idaho spends less on education, but teachers' unions only care about per pupil average spending.

Except that Idaho's school performance on the NAEPs, the nationwide exams that serve as state-by-state report cards, tells a radically different story. In 4th grade, Idaho is about average in math and reading. By 12th grade, Idaho is in the top eight in math and reading. Idaho is 47th in spending, but top eight in student proficiency levels. Explain that.

Of course, statisticians then take those raw NAEP numbers and adjust them for demographics (i.e., if Idaho had more minorities than its roughly 20% Hispanic population, then how would Idaho rank?). These adjustments invariably push a state like Idaho far back down the rankings.

Compare this with a state like Mississippi, which always ranks close to Idaho in school spending. White and black students in the state are in roughly equal numbers, and the NAEPs are in the crapper. When "demographic adjustments" are factored in, Mississippi is still below average nationally, but it makes Idaho and Mississippi look like they are on pretty equal ground again. Educationally, they're not close to equal, but the people who do social engineering and who bang the drum for more school funding would prefer if we didn't know that and definitely don't want us asking why.

Most of the Ivy League schools are famous for graduating most who enter. Be connected enough or rich enough to get in and you are going to get that degree.

So, if you have money and connections, you wouldn't see this as faking your way. You would see actual learning as a complete waste of time, because you won't need it for your degree or your career.

It seems like the Ruling Class equivalent of meth: not a cause of decay, but a symptom.

Blogger buzzardist April 17, 2018 10:51 PM  

The fads that made up the educational wars in the 1980s and 1990s were largely reactions to the shifting demographics. Blaming them is putting the cart before the horse.

Student performance was dropping because the student demographics were shifting. Educators scrambled to come up with magical classroom formulas and new assessment schemes that would compensate for (or hide) this reality. It didn't work. In most cases, student performance didn't shift at all in response to the fad. In a few cases, the changes might have been slightly beneficial or slightly harmful. But the demographics have always been a much more powerful factor that swamped whatever new thing teachers and administrators were trying in the schools.

This is another reason you see shifting student bodies. I used to teach at a HS in the metro-Houston area. It was primarily white, at least compared to other schools in the area. It also had the highest test scores. So, of course, the non-whites start creeping in to get the benefits that accompany a more successful school (funding, etc.). The scores start going down. The whites start moving to other schools that are still mainly white. Within a few years, the original school is mostly non-white, and has the same pitiful scores as the other schools in the area.

Everyone just keeps shuffling around, going nowhere.

DJ, you also have to factor in "Measure 5" passed in 1990 to slow down property tax increases but also equalize spending. Namely, the Portland liberals felt bad that some of their city schools in poorer areas aka minorities weren't doing well. They sold it on helping rural areas too. Some it did, some it didn't.

The law made it so all school spending is collected by the state legislature (and not local counties/boards) and spent equally among all schools. Aka, state control of education, not just standards but all the money too.

The great irony is that some Portland libs these days complain that too much money is spent out in hicksville and "they aren't even teaching our beliefs!".

Please to be noting, and this applies to DJ's list of "whitest" states: according to census definitions, "Hispanics can be of any race", so those numbers are worse than they appear.

Also, like much of California, Bakersfield is very much divided into have and have nots, with many well-off SoCal people "fleeing" to gated communities in the area. They make the numbers look a little better, but they don't anything to actually improve the city, which is also one of the nation's car theft capitals.

My son is on what is effectively a High School robotics team, or maybe the better way to say it is a robotics team for HS aged kids. Last year went pretty far into the "playoffs", among the top handful of teams in the nation. I got to see a lot of teenagers making and competing with robots at the highest level - public school teams, private hoity-toity schools, individual clubs... A few observations.

The best teams tended to be from rural white towns based on resource extraction - mining, timber, farming. Idaho, Montana, Utah, Colorado were all well-represented. Teams of mostly White rural kids with maybe one or two Asians, they were the winners. Teams with all Asians struggled, even though you could tell the dads were heavily involved in "helping" their little tiger cubs. The all-girl teams got lots of "Spirit" and "Inspiration" awards, and lots of points for neat, well-organized engineering notebooks. They didn't win very many matches.

There were a few Hispanics, but not very many. I didn't see a verifiable dindu on any of the teams that made it past State. Thought I saw one, but turned out to be a dark-skinned Dotindian.

This is what achievement looks like shorn of somebody's thumb on the scale.

Doesn’t avoid the obvious but directly denies it. Yeah, that’ll work.

Those crazy Swedes always throwing hand grenades. When I think of Swedes, I think of hand grenades, rape, and living on the dole.

For whatever reason, I went onto Youtube to listen to an old Kinks song, and the spy software suggestes I listen to Lionel Ritchie's "Hello." It was a bit before my time, but I knew the song, its beautiful. Great song. Talented man. It was 1 on the Billboard charts about this time in 1984. Curious, I listened to 1 on the Billboard charts 34 years later - that is to say, right now. The song is called "Nice for what" by someone called Drake. Both Ritchie and Drake are black men. I have to tell you, listening to those two songs, back to back and a generation apart, brought to my knees. My God we have lost so much. We had a really really great country.... and I thought: wow how powerful of a tool could this be, to remind people of what once was, and could be again. I don't know how to do it - but Billboard 100 - someone could put together a great video on this. Its shocking, horrifying, and gives me resolve.

@55 Resident Moron:

and in the past week there's been another Muslim freakout in France over some ban on face coverings. Riots, cars torched. Standard 3rd world behavior.

Contrast this with the rape/molestation of thousands of white girls and what happens? A few scattered public protests.

Either the west is just bottling this rage up and waiting for the right time, or the deep state/globalists have the psy-ops/1984 system locked.

My town and school are 96% white. One K-8 School, ~350 students, very small class sizes, 12-15 kids. It’s in a rural working class town, yet pretty high performing considering the population.

So, OF COURSE they want to merge with the neighboring regional district, which means my kids will probably no longer attend the school one-half mile from home, but will be bussed to the town next door so they can imorovamentate the Hispanic and black and assorted mixed kids of single moms in the town next door.

Can’t have white kids getting any advantages. No matter where you move, they come for you.

The busing battles of the 1970s and 1980s was fundamentally based on the idea that blacks, Hispanics, and other minorities can't be successfully educated without being surrounded by a sufficient number of whites. So, what are they going to do now that they are running short on white students?
The solution is simple:

"RESOLVED:  Access to White people is not a human right."

@58 - Azimus

I was born in 1963, so I'm old enough to have distinct memories of even the 60's. The past is truly a different country--that was 120 million people ago. I call the 80's the Last White Decade. Even the 90's were pretty good--strong dollar, less crowding. When my daughter asks me what things were like I tell her: "whiter, and thinner." Has there ever been a country that successfully and peacefully reduced its founding stock's share of the population by one-quarter? In one generation, this will be by one-half.

Here's one striking change from my perspective that has been unremarked so far:

Whites used to be meaner. This had a definite downside: domestic violence and bullying were much more common. We have done an incredible job at pacifying whites away from casual brutality and orneriness. I knew some very mean whites growing up--whole extended families. Now they are old, tired people and their children are more sensible about things. On the other hand I'm not sure we're ready for the kind of wanton violence that will play out. Or maybe it won't, I don't know.

A lot of whites just seem like beaten people these days. They eat too much, they drink too much. The successful ones on the other hand seem to drift along like it's still Reagan's America. I don't know what kind of Bubble they're in. I know mine isn't nearly as impregnable as I'd like.

I have no idea how it all plays out so I'll leave it at that.

@29 " Could it be that Idaho (93.5% - 47th) has an epidemic of honest school administrators, while Mississippi (59.4% - 48th) has an epidemic of dishonest school administrators?"

Much MUCH more likely is that Miss. has mostly BLACK affirmative action administrators -- which leads, often, to dishonesty -- but also starts at just plain incompetence!

Where have all of the white boys gone? I went to my daughters school and I hardly seem them. I see plenty of browns. In our church youth choir, all beautiful white girls and the males are all Filipino? My daughter plays the violin and she is surrounded by Asian counterparts. She's 14, who will she meet as a mate? I can't move I have to work in the area, the private schools are all converged there is no safe haven. I will NOT have mongrels for grandchildren. It scares me to death.

#62 Amy: Fight as hard as you can against assimilation: then get involved in teching up your school. Virtue signal w/ competitive extracurriculars: as in, finest white sports teams, most precise(physically fit) cheerleaders, good orchestra.

Make it easy to start a business in your district. I don't know how you do that, but find a way: ours has tech, food processing, ranching, services, engineering.

The property values will skyrocket. If you have churches with large youth programs and a decent FCA, the non-Christians will feel uncomfortable, and not crash into your community. Or they will convert.

We live near a major city that has a series of small, non-diverse towns surrounding it. It takes all the moving parts- high standards, big churches, tech-leveraged schools- to really make it all explode. Jobs. People starting companies. Small, big, goofy, does not matter. Owners hold ground. Families w/ three generations in a district, expecting a fourth or more, really really hold ground.

I've met twenty-something, thirty-somethings who didn't buy in- price- weeping because they know they aren't in paradise anymore. They really did not know what a difference five miles makes.

“Whites used to be meaner.”

Yeah. And then they weren’t, so much. It’s still used as a club to beat white guilt into people. Back when there was something to defend, be it honor or pride, or a mate, or territory/possessions, whites were mean. Sometimes without provocation or justification. My great grandfather was considered an ornery sort who beat his wife and terrorized his kids, according to my grandma, but I remember him sweet as pie and a gentle, kind man. Maybe he changed in his old age, or maybe everyone was wrong about him. He died when I was ten so I’ll never know. I do know that when his wife was mugged by ni**ers, he gathered up a few friends and beat the muggers down. Never saw them again.

A few years later, his city was “integrated.”I think it might have taken some of the fire out of him. He got beat, not by fists but by policy, and politics.

How many more?

Precisely who are "they"?  Find out.  Let others know who "they" are.

It seems to me that you could nip this in the bud by taking your displeasure directly to "them".  Take it to them at home, at work, wherever they go out.  There are many ways to make displeasure known.  Use them.

I remember it being about teachers. All the "good" teachers were in the white schools and all the "bad" teachers were in the minority schools. Busing was an attempt to get the minority kids a better education. Of course, it was just a coincidence that the "good" schools were in the white areas, don't you know.
