Education Mass Failure in Michigan Over Diversity

by Lewis Loflin

See Michigan Education System Ruined by Diversity Social Engineering

The State Summery Report for the Michigan Dept. of Education for 2011 is an education horror show. Not only have they failed to educate low-achieving blacks and Hispanics, but have so dumbed-down the whole system to achieve racial leveling even whites and Asians are failing. Note the following are for grade 12 in 2011. Here I've combined "proficient" and "advanced" into "passed" and "partially proficient" and "not proficient" into "failed".

Reading
YearPassedFailed
201137%63%
201041%59%
200939%61%
200846%54%

Note the point spread was 950-1250 and the mean was around 1087 and 1088 is "not proficient". Those scoring advanced (1158-1250) were 1% or less for all four years.

Writing
YearPassedFailed
201117%83%
201019%81%
200919%81%
200820%80%

Note the point spread was 950-1250 and the mean was around 1065 and 1088 is "not proficient". Those scoring advanced (1158-1250) were 1% or less for all four years.

Mathematics
YearPassedFailed
201122%78%
201021%79%
200924%76%
200826%74%

Note the point spread was 950-1250 and the mean was around 1076 and 1088 is "not proficient". Those scoring advanced (1158-1250) were 3% or less for all four years.

Science
YearPassedFailed
201128%72%
201029%71%
200928%72%
200838%62%

Note the point spread was 950-1250 and the mean was around 1075 and 1088 is "not proficient". Those scoring advanced (1158-1250) were 2-4% for all four years. Note the 10 point drop from 2008-2011.

Social Studies
YearPassedFailed
201154%46%
201060%40%
200965%35%
200869%31%

Note the point spread was 950-1250 and the mean was around 1112. Those scoring advanced (1158-1250) were 17-23% for all four years. What is bothersome is the steady drop from 2008-2011. How could their writing skills and reading skills be so poor, yet they score highest here?

That is the potential graduating class of 2012. When I examined the State Demographic Report Spring 2012 was even more shocking. The New York Times article titled "Racial gaps in Michigan exam results a concern" June 29, 2012 illustrates the total obsession with race by the Left be it the press or liberal controlled school systems. First let's review grade 11 2012 by race.

A total of 106,321 students took the exams and when we strip out silly categories such as disabled, that left 96,276. I'll use the same standards as above noting the points spread is being manipulated and different for every group.

Gender: about 46,733 males and about 49,543 females. Of the males 50% passed reading, 56% passed writing, 35% passed mathematics, 32% passed science, and 48% social studies. That averages across all subjects to 44.2 or over half the students failed.

For females 53% passed reading, 56% passed writing, 29% passed mathematics, 24% passed science, and 38% passed social studies. The average across all subjects is 40. The schools consider this a success because both failed at nearly equal rates thus achieving the much desired gender achievement leveling. I'm sure they will work harder to bring males down closer to females.

The number of Asians (2897) and Hispanics of all races (4289) are very small overall. Asians nationally are far wealthier per-capita than even whites and their cross subject average is 59.8. Far better than all other groups, but still bad in that over 40% failed. As for Hispanics, an appalling 28.2. Most disturbing is only 17% passed mathematics an 14% for science.

Now we come to the biggie, blacks. Their cross subject average is an unbelievable 15.6. That means of the about 14,500 blacks taking the tests less than 2300 passed and 12,200 failed. And these were the ones that hadn't dropped out by the 12th grade which is often over half. In the Detroit Public School system only 6% passed the math exam while 3% passed the science exam.

Across the state 7% of blacks passed math and 5% passed science. Remember these schools are operated by leftists and liberals. As often self-hating whites perhaps they should hate themselves because if anyone is to blame, they are to blame.

Now we come to whites and there should be a far bigger concern here. About 72,500 whites took these tests. Their cross subject average is 49. Thus 51% or 35,975 white students failed. That's three times the number of blacks. They scored poorly in math at 36% and 33% in science. In the other subjects scored close to Asians. To me anything less than 70 in my classroom is failed.

This is really scary with the modern ecology movement that tries to bolster their often extreme agenda on the back of science while so many are ignorant of the science in general. They lack reasoning skills to use the information in addition to being ignorant of the subject. They have faith in science while not knowing a damn thing about it.

Now we know why the educational Left must resort to racist' tactics to get any minorities into college at all in Michigan. They fail a far greater number of whites than minority students in an effort to pander to low-achieving non-Asians. Whites are the main victims of their lousy school system, not minorities. The whole system is a failure because education has taken a back seat to racial social engineering and racial leveling.

It's time for real racial equality and equal treatment for all, one standard for all, and instill merit and not race in public education. It's time to end failed diversity racism in our schools.
