To divide up education standards by race is basicly racist policy. But stereotypes are created by common occurances. If a particular group of people tend to stress the importance of education over another, is it fair to the kids that get no encouragement at home to be failed or held back a grade. Should the schools lower the levels across the board? So the unmotivated kids that will do just good enough to pass are shooting for 74% instead of 80's (honestly they won't set the standard that everybody has to keep up with the asians). Then you are setting the bar to low for kids that are equipted to do better and are only pushed not fail at home.
My friend is a Jr. High school teacher in one of the worst schools in Oklahoma. He says it is nearly impossible to teach the kids anything when they brag about how their "Pops" just made assistant manager at Mcdonald's. If most of the kids are viewing a career as assistant manager at a fast food chain, they aren't aiming high. How much do you think they really care about education. All they have to do is count change and read enough to understand a menu. They don't see any point in understanding biology.
I don't get it. My parents pushed the importance of education pretty hard especially when I was little. My brother and I got grounded for bringing a B home on a paper; not the report card. It i was only for a couple days. Study the rest of the day on what you missed and do it again on the next day.
