  1. All these darned numerical quotas!?

    So if a student of minority is corected/punished,

    Then 10 white students must be corrected and punished
    Should those students be picked at random?
    Every studend must be evenly punished, guilty or not

  2. Could it be that there are more black students breaking rules than others? It’s not like these folks are just making things up to punish black students, let’s get real. This is ridiculous.

    • Just do like the now defunded Police do and have a hands off policy on Black Offenders. That’s the answer. You don t want to be a racist now. Learn to duck when downtown. What’s wrong with you. Silly fool.

    • Wash your mouth out, Lesco! You clearly misunderstand the goals of Governor Scott’s woke Ministry of Education The outcomes *must* be identical – or we must adjust the opportunities, the measurements and the reporting and the until they are!

  3. I am so tired of the racism ……lets just look at those students as students and not the color of their skin or ethnic origin…..those who tout this are the racist here……

  4. Respiratory virus…….wonder how many of those are vaccinated…..that would be an interesting study to do……..

  5. What is it? 24 out of the 25 gunfire incidents in Burlington this year? Yes. Let’s look at this more closely and let the adults have some real conversations.
