    Is Science Racist? Liberals Want to Drop Science Classes

    by Jeff Davis

    One thing about science and math courses is that there’s no room for fakers. Either you know the material or you don’t. While liberal history or english professors can ignore massive spelling and grammatical errors and give generous grades to the quota-students for scribbling out some attempt at writing an essay. Math and science are not so forgiving. You either get the question right or you don’t. I guess that makes science “racist” since it frequently gives minorities poor grades.

    An article from the East Bay Express tells us: “Berkeley High School is considering a controversial proposal to eliminate science labs and the five science teachers who teach them to free up more resources to help struggling students. The proposal to put the science-lab cuts on the table was approved recently by Berkeley High’s School Governance Council, a body of teachers, parents, and students who oversee a plan to change the structure of the high school to address Berkeley’s dismal racial achievement gap, where white students are doing far better than the state average while black and Latino students are doing worse.”

    During poor economic times, public schools have been known to cut music, art and some sports classes. But cut science classes?

    Yeah, just what we need more pandering to those less intelligent. Let's drop science classes because certain groups are in general not smart enough to do well in them. I have returned from my weekly walk to the local library to read some opionmagizines where I read that there is a proposal to remove Classical languages from the gymnasium. This because a lot of white parents want to send their not so smart children to them, because they are one of the few relative white schools left.

    What of course is the same pattern. Let's dumb down education so that struggling (read not so smart) students can be helped .
