75% of black California boys don’t meet state reading standards

75% of black California boys don’t meet state reading standards: Across ethnicities and economic status, girls outperform boys on English in standardized tests

Three of four African-American boys in California classrooms failed to meet reading and writing standards on the most recent round of testing, according to data obtained from the state Department of Education and analyzed by CALmatters.

More than half of black boys scored in the lowest category on the English portion of the test, trailing their female counterparts. The disparity reflects a stubbornly persistent gender gap in reading and writing scores that stretches across ethnic groups.

  1. There are two things that need to be done:

    1) Abolish affirmative action. This policy is so wrong and destructive in so many ways, but specific to this issue, it tells young people in this group that they don't have to try as hard. Affirmative Action argues that blacks are inferior, handicapped beings who can't compete on a level playing field.

    2) Institute education reforms. The teachers responsible for this should be fired, prosecuted, and their assets confiscated. Instead, thanks to the teachers' union, the "teachers" who destroy young minds like this make millions doing a terrible job.
