    What?! You say that throwing more wood on the fire didn’t put it out? OK, maybe this time if you try using gasoline.

    This is why we need a voucher system. Don’t fight the system just escape it. This includes the teachers too. I know of a primary school teacher in a magnet school who’s looking for private school job because she never signed up to be an animal wrangler.

    Teach them that black on black crime is the root cause of all issues.

    The amount of denial is unbelievable!

    PEG says concepts like hard work and planning for the future are traits of “white culture,” and implies that minority students cannot be expected to respond to a curriculum based on those values. They say black culture is more in tune with “collectivism,” presumably the type applied in Cuba or North Korea.

    According to PEG, white culture is based on “white individualism” or “white traits” like “rugged individualism,” “adherence to rigid time schedules,” “plan(ning) for the future,” and the idea that “hard work is the key to success.”

    The minority cultures, according to PEG, value “color group collectivism.” This entails “fostering interdependence” and group success, shared property, learning through social relationships, and making life choices based on “what will be best for the family” or the group.

    The Pacific Educational Group is essentially saying that when schools emphasize the values of “white culture,” they are setting African American and Latino students up to fail.
