Paul Robeson High School Prom; “This is are story”

This is ‘Are’ Most Embarrassing Story This Week: Chicago Teachers Union-Run School Bombs at the Prom

Your taxpayer dollars at work. $76,000.00 a year for illiterate teachers! What a deal! Paul Robeson was a black Communist from the 1950’s who toured the USSR and hated White people and the country that made him. This is a fitting epitaph for such a person.

In the “you can’t make this up” file, Paul Robeson High School in Chicago just had its prom and its theme was “This Is Are Story.” Sadly, this isn’t a joke or a bit of intentional irony on the part of the students.

Turns out that Paul Robeson High School is a symptom of a school district that is failing its students. The neighborhood is located in the Englewood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, which is one of the poorest and most dangerous neighborhoods in the city.
Just how bad are Chicago Public Schools, they’re this bad:
Four out of 10 CPS freshmen do not graduate.
If they do graduate, 91 percent have to take remediation courses in college because they do not know how to do basic math and school work. Just 26 percent of CPS high school students are college-ready, according to the ACT subject matter tests.
The taxpayers pay these teachers $76,000 a year and the school’s administration can’t even distinguish between “are” and “our” on printed cards they hand out on prom night?
If a Chicago public school can’t use acceptable grammar on mass-printed cards, then what does that say about what’s going on in the schools?

    What do you expect from Affirmative Action hires?  Competence?  Besides, proper spelling and grammar is rayciss!

    You can’t spell retard without ‘are’.

    I would guess in the lower Michigan dialect that the words are pronounced the same. That alternative could, you know, along with loss of distinction between your and you’re and there, their and they’re, so well as continuing general simplification and dumbing down of semantics, phonetics and grammar, become the standard spelling. All Germanic languages save Icelandic and Faroese have tended toward rather extreme (from my pov) phonetic and grammatical simplification since ancient times. Some (like English, Dutch and Scandinavian languages) are more advanced in this process than others (like German (they’re working on that one)).

    I went through most of childhood in Detroit in a previous century. “Are” and “our” were spoken the same then.
    I thought that sort of thing was more prevalent here in the Western U.S. I’ve received printed matter from public schools that failed to distinguish “its” (possessive) from “it’s” (“it is”) and confused “than” (comparative) for “then” ( “at that time”).
    I think I had the best teachers, in the subjects they taught, when they were neurotic old women in wimples who may have had a Normal School education. Encouraging teachers to get more advanced degrees has coincided with a proliferation of imaginary majors and a dumbing down of what needs be mastered to get those degrees.
    Surprised it wasn’t “R story”.

  5. Anon says:

    for them, a written language is just cultural appropriation anyway.

  6. Anon.Dude says:

    I feel that most WN types deep down know these people are as much victims of the ZOG system as average white folks.

    I know about the knockout game, I know about black on white crime, and I look at this prom and I see a great example ZOG trying to pretend the ineducable are educated.

    Integration has failed. ZOG is desperately trying to hold this mess together.

    That wood bee 76,000 four 36 weaks.

    • mindweapon says:

      LOL. How much is that per dae, thordaddy? 36 weaks times 5, 180 dayz — that’s 422 a day! Wow! Less taxes, call it 57k a year. OK, 316 per day, about 40 bucks an hour! Wow! Plus gold plated health insurance.

      Keynesianism for the Paychex Liberals. It’s the Liberal Jobz Program Industrial Complex.

    All you gotta do is unionize the entire planet and everyone can make wages like that.

    Do they have a debating team?
