Florida Passes Plan for Racially-Based Academic Goals [View all]

The Education Board says it wants 90% of Asian students, 88% of White students, 81% of Hispanic students and 74% of Black students to be proficient at reading and math at or above grade level by 2018. It also measures other groupings such as poverty and disabilities. This is infuriating many community activists in Palm Beach County and across the state. I think it is beyond disgusting. How will the teachers do this. Separate the kids in classrooms by group? So many problems could arise I that are too numerous to mention. Florida is one sick Republican state.
