"A review of TAKS scores from 2006 to 2010 shows that more poor and minority students are scoring at the higher "commended" level, which is considered a good indication of college readiness. But higher- income, white and Asian students are making even bigger gains.

The startling reality is that while achievement is rising for all groups of students, so are the disparities between them."

You dumb down the system and the smarter races will just do even better. Liberals are brain dead with this egalitarianism thinking. People are not equal and never will be. If they were there would be other peoples walking on the moon and living first world style.

Not everyone can be on top. Only fools feel guilt for evolving into the planets foremost predator.

It's the water analogy.

Pouring dirty water (black people) into clean water (white society) won't "clean" the dirty water.
It will only dirty the clean water.

It is more like blacks swimming, IMO. Just like in real life they sink to the bottom no matter how much the white man tries to help them.
