Brooklyn school cutting gifted program to boost diversity Ditmas Park’s P.S. 139 Principal Mary McDonald told parents the elementary school would no longer accept kindergartners applications for the SOAR program. Future classes will be ‘heterogeneously grouped.’
Heterogeneously grouped. In other words, the dumb, loud, disruptive kids will be heterogeneously grouped with the quiet, smart, introspective kids.
More than two thirds of the school’s roughly 1,000 students are black or hispanic while Asian-American and white students made up 28%, according to Education Dept. records.
At least one parent described the small gifted program, Students of Academic Rigor — or SOAR — as overwhelming caucasion, although others disputed that characterization.
Anything that’s good for white kids, or “largely white kids” is negotiable. School integration means white people sacrifice and sacrifice some more.
(Principal Mary) McDonald didn’t respond to numerous requests for comment. A city Education Dept. spokeswoman said cutting the programs was the decision of the school.
That’s public education for you — no accountability to the public whatsoever. Teachers can be totally incompetent, but the union and the principals stand behind them like an unbreakable chain.
Public schools suck. They gotta go. And Communists suck. They really gotta go.
