It’s being reported that a policy that forces a hands-off approach to school discipline will be reversed by the Trump administration. We first reported on this proposed policy when AG Loretta Lynch spoke about “our babies” (see video below) to a crowd during a speech on civil rights:

“The dream is still continuing not only in the courts but in our schools,” Lynch told a largely black audience. “And we all know, education is the key. And we understand that discipline is important. We understand that rules are important but we also know that when we sit and look at schools that have the zero tolerance programs, they are often used, and they take our babies, minority children, black children, Hispanic children, and they put them out of school before they have a chance to learn.

“And so the Department of Justice, this past year, has gone into the South, although we’re looking further, and brought the first prison, school-to-prison pipeline cases against school districts in Alabama.”

She felt that young black men were unfairly disciplined more than other races. In other words, she feels that school discipline is racist. The problem is that they were punished more because they were committing more offenses. The government solution was to do what they always do…make the situation worse.

Via NY Post:

The Trump administration plans this summer to scrap a controversial Obama-era discipline rule forced on schools to close racial gaps in suspensions and arrests but that critics say pressures educators to turn a blind eye to escalating bad behavior.

The federal directive, issued jointly in 2014 by the US departments of Education and Justice, warned public school districts receiving federal funding — including New York City — that they could face investigation and funding cuts if they fail to reduce statistical “disparities” in discipline by race. On average, the administration noted, black students are suspended at three times the rate of their white peers.

The directive also discourages student arrests and holds districts liable for the actions of “school resource officers … or other law enforcement personnel.”

The one-size-fits-all federal policy, which recommends group counseling sessions and other alternatives to traditional discipline, has been foisted on several hundred school districts serving millions of students through investigations and threats of investigation that have continued into the Trump administration. More than 300 school districts remain under federal scrutiny, including NYC schools.

“The scope of it is breathtaking,” said Max Eden, an education policy expert and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.Keep reading…

OUR REPORT FROM 2015:

Thug Student Blows Cigar Smoke In Teacher’s Face But Loretta Lynch Wouldn’t Punish Him…Here’s Why [Video]

This is why bad behavior continues to escalate in schools…A student hadn’t received any discipline FOUR DAYS AFTER  blowing cigar smoke in his teacher’s face! His punishment should have been swift and the threat to come back should have been taken more seriously. Remember that our DOJ’s Loretta Lynch (Eric Holder in a skirt) pushed for a program to treat black students with more leniency than other students – in other words, school discipline is racist:
“The dream is still continuing not only in the courts but in our schools,” Lynch told a largely black audience. “And we all know, education is the key. And we understand that discipline is important. We understand that rules are important but we also know that when we sit and look at schools that have the zero tolerance programs, they are often used, and they take our babies, minority children, black children, Hispanic children, and they put them out of school before they have a chance to learn.

“And so the Department of Justice, this past year, has gone into the South, although we’re looking further, and brought the first prison, school-to-prison pipeline cases against school districts in Alabama.”

HERE’S LYNCH (2:00 MARK) TALKING ABOUT “OUR BABIES” AND HOW SCHOOL DISCIPLINE IS RACIST:


No action has been taken as of Friday morning after a North Little Rock High School student was seen in a video blowing smoke at his teacher during an argument earlier this week, according to the school district.

That 10-second video was posted to YouTube by user “J Doe” on Tuesday, one day after the reported incident.

In a North Little Rock police report, the teacher said he told the 18-year-old student about 9:30 a.m. Monday that he would have to sit in the hallway to take his final exam — a request the student refused.

The teacher then warned the student that he would write him up and call for his removal from the classroom, according to the report. While reaching for the intercom button, the student said, “Hit that button, I dare you,” the teacher told police.

After pushing the intercom button, the teacher said he looked away to write the student up for his actions and began to hear a “commotion” from students “going wild” in his classroom.

According to the report, the teacher turned around and saw that the student had “lit a cigar and was taking a drag off of it.”

“[The student] then got up from his seat, walked up to [his teacher] and blew smoke in his face three times,” the report stated.

Monday’s incident wasn’t the first time the student had been removed from his classroom this year, the teacher said, citing problems on “several occasions.”

A campus supervisor arrived and escorted the student out of the classroom shortly after, with the student saying “I’ll be back.”

The police report lists the offense as insult or abuse of a teacher. Action against the student could range from no action to expulsion once a final review is completed, the district said.
