Dream Deferred: Are We Leaving Black Students Behind?

Dream Deferred: Are We Leaving Black Students Behind?

Commented Jul 27, 2013 at 14:06:32 in Black Voices

“Some of the teachers behavior was horrible and deserves a reprimand! The key is that at some point he fell in with the wrong crowd and stopped trying. I bet he cut class, never looked at a book, and never thought about school seriously again. This is a common story in America's inner cities.. This is so often the story of poor children, no health care, poor diet, substandard housing. It is a good chance he lived with a single mom, in a run down neighborhood with lots of drugs, gangs and violence. Only the very strong and determined kids survive educationally in these environments. To blame the school, the teachers, even the parents in these cases is to scapegoat the innocent. The streets take the kids from the parents!!. All the supposed miracle workers line Michelle Rhee, Joe Clark, Teach for America, Rod Paige and his Houston Miracle have all been frauds. No one and I mean no one has figured out or has helped poor kids compete with their wealthier schoolmates and until someone figures how to combat the affects of poverty no one will!!!”

“Big deal the Michigan exploited inner city kids beat the exploited inner city kids of Kansas while both coaches and the universities make millions and the kids get NOTHING!!! Who cares?”

elcastle on Mar 30, 2013 at 08:50:36

“You mean dream that is not possible for so many inner city kids - getting scholarship on great university, getting free education, studying anything you want, making career of your choice and - sometimes even ticket to NBA...that is NOTHING for you??? That is pretty enough for me. You have no ideas what life they live, they are pampered beyond recognition. They get free clothes 4-5 years, they get free health care, massage, great food, and all they have to do is bounce that inflated leather ball....That sounds like good deal for me and if they are any good they can rake in so much in pro money...that is up to them. But for free education which costs you 250 000 sometimes...plus all clothing, living, health care, food...4 years it comes up to pretty high amount....some people don't earn that kind of money working hard jobs.”

mike242 on Mar 30, 2013 at 06:46:34

“Keep in mind less than 1 percent of the players go on to become nba players. The rest do get the opportunity for a fee quality education. Than they can go into the real world where they are equally exploited much like every one is in the working class.”

sloopyinca on Mar 30, 2013 at 00:12:23

“I didn't know slavery still existed, because I thought the kids entered into these arrangements voluntarily.

Oh, and if the NBAPA (their players union) didn't exclude kids from going pro straight out of high school, which should be illegal to do since they're 18 years old, then the number of exploited people would go down as the only kids going to college would be the ones that need to. So blame the labor union for preventing people of age from entering the workplace.”

Ravi Abunijad on Mar 30, 2013 at 00:03:34

“Eh, I don't know about that. The kids go to elite universities and many of them will make millions in the NBA. It's an exploitative system in many ways, but you can't say they get nothing.”

“Uh, they DO get the opportunity for a degree that would otherwise cost more than $20K/year.”
