How is This:
Better than this?:
The real estate tax alocation system used to determine the funding of schools, is used in NYC and has been used as long as I can remeber to ensure innercity schools do not get the same or near as much funding as schools in higher real property areas.
Tha is the current state of segregation, seperate, but in no way equal.
During the 60s and 70s many Black families moved into integrated neighborhoods because they could not afford private schools.
As areas like East Flatbush and many areas of Queens became predominantly Black middle class, folks moved there as well as Long Island for better schools for their children.
With Al Sharpton running across the nation with Newt Ginrich
to support the neocon plan for education, many parents in NYC feel powerless against the Bloomberg mafia "s-cruel system"
, and Capo-Joel Kline
I moved to east Flatbush in 64'. Erasmus Hall H.S. I fine tuned my fist and kicks at church & Flatbush. Lol some good memories!
Erasmus is all Black now
wow!, thats cool. how the world changes, they teach any thing there now? I only learned to fight and navigate the system then.
Now in regards to those old pictures let's be clear, the Black only schools in the 60s were,
WORSE then the Black only schools in the 40s, ask your great aunts and uncles.
Not only was there vocational and full home economics (survivsl skills) but there was Black education back then.
However at 2010 we have to ask ourselves across the 50 states, are our children's correct and exact education,
worth a percentage of the 800 billion we spend, were we could for a few dollars by each and every formulate our own eNational Black Education think tank, to return the African centered centers of the 60s as well as create our own school system?
Let's See what El Hajj Malik Shabbaz, had instructed us to do in the Charter of the Organization of Afro-American Unity;
The Organization of Afro-American Unity recognizes the tremendous importance of the complete involvement of Afro-American parents in every phase of school life. Afro-American parents must be willing and able to go into the schools and see that the job of educating our children is done properly.
We call on all Afro-Americans around the nation to be aware that the conditions that exist in the New York City public school system are as deplorable in their cities as they are here. We must unite our efforts and spread our program of self-improvement through education to every Afro-American community in America.
We must establish all over the country schools of our own to train our children to become scientists and mathematicians. We must realize the need for adult education and for job retraining programs that will emphasize a changing society in which automation plays the key role. We intend to use the tools of education to help raise our respect through their own efforts.
I asked this same question when I was in School.. and the answers
I got were vague and dismissive.. here we are an all black class with a
white teacher telling us about how integration was so great.. but the
pictures didn't look great.. and all of us here and black and the teacher is
white.. so what changed besides a black teacher losing her job?.. and a black
family losing her income? sounded like a hustle to me then.. and it sounds like
a hustle to me now...
Better yet, how is either of those pictures better than today?
you know.. it's almost impossible to got through our history here in America
and not come to the conclusion that white folks are evil. look at all the
intensity and hate in those pictures.. for children coming to sit in a seat
and learn.. we have got to be either the blindest people in the history of the
world or just forgiving to a fault.
The National Guard had to escort our kids to school.. After Brown versus
Board of Education.. in Topeka.. the district closed down.. so as not to have
to sit in the same class with our people.. thats the attitude we should have
had for them.. not the other way around.. why are we trying to get white
folks to warm up to us.. ? What was the use then.. and what is the use now?
