Junk like this prevails while the more real and serious problems get worse.

This study points out the divergences but finds no solutions as all prior predisposed racial theories failed the measuring test.
Schools are all equally well equipped so there is no disparity in the amount of money being spent.
Black students having black teachers actually did worse on the scores while the opposite had always been presumed to be a factor.
They are only left to one limp hypothesis.

She disputed the characterization that it was a “requirement” for kindergarteners to learn the song, saying all students were given permission slips for their parents to sign before they were allowed to take part.

“As a parent, you would have the right to say I don’t want my child participating in this,” Durham said.


She said she didn’t know whether the permission slips detailed what the activity would involve, and said she hadn’t heard whether any parents disagreed with the song. Of the school’s 194 kindergarteners, only 25 will be participating in the program — a number Durham said is typical for an evening school activity, and not necessarily reflective of parents’ feelings on the subject matter.

When I was in elementary school we sang this song every time a guest came to our school:

Thank you very much
Thank you very much
That's the nicest thing that anyone's ever done for us
You rate the best by far
At Yeager you're a star
We feel just like a brand new day's begun for us
And if we had confetti we would throw it
Or shake your hand and smile so you would know
We'd like for you to stay with us and never, ever go
Thank you very, very, very much!



It really wasn't the nicest thing that anyone had ever done for us, and we didn't really want them to stay with us and never, ever go. It was just a song.
The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes
--Matt Redman, 10,000 Reasons

And you offer that as some kind of relevance???
Good God you folks have absolutely lost your marbles.

Did you pay royalties to the songwriters from Scrooge???
“... at night ... guarded by eighty sentinels ... Ernesto IV trembles in his room. All the doors fastened with ten bolts, and the adjoining rooms, above as well as below him, packed with soldiers... If a plank creaks in the floor, he snatches up his pistols and imagines there is a Liberal hiding under his bed. At once all the bells in the castle are set ringing ... the Minister of Police takes good care not to deny the existence of any conspiracy; on the contrary, alone with the Prince, and armed to the teeth, he inspects every corner of the rooms, looks under the beds, and, in a word, gives himself up to a whole heap of ridiculous actions worthy of an old woman." --Stendahl, The Charterhouse of Parma (1839)

So are y'all offended by elementary school songs about past presidents or just the one currently in office?

I don't know how this comment will play with the educators on the board, but frankly a majority of mandatory schooling is indoctrination. Not much that you are taught that isn't taken on some amount of faith based on the authority of your teacher. It's a Grand Old Flag is every bit as doctrinaire as this Obama song. People get offended when the indoctrinated lesson doesn't jive with the parents' ideology ...

Which is why the whole "teach the controversy" movement is such a farce ...
Worse? How can things get any worse?!?! Take a look around! We're standing at the threshold of hell!

The blinding madness prevails.......

BTW
here is the rest of the chant.

Famous Author, Dreams of my Father
He's our man, Yes we can!
Every Call, Basketball
Outside the box. Chicago White Sox
Resident President


Who wants to go to college at Yale?
Malia & Sasha will go to college at Yale
Who'll make sure they won't fail?
Barack & Michelle know they won't fail


They won't fail, they're going to Yale
Famous Author, Dream of my Father
He's our man, Yes we can!
Every Call, Basketball
Outside the box, Chicago White Sox
Resident, President


==================

A promise to get them into a ivy league college, invoking their names as a promissory chant that they "won't fail" ??????
and even using their election campaign slogan.

Nothing unusual here. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Just the blind useful idiots protecting their messiah at any personal cost to their personal integrity.

No...just presenting the facts. Something you seem to be allergic to. It was not required, and judging by the numbers not too many are signing on.
