    Palm Beach, Fla. (CBS TAMPA) – The Florida State Board of Education passed a plan that sets goals for students in math and reading based upon their race.

    On Tuesday, the board passed a revised strategic plan that says that by 2018, it wants 90 percent of Asian students, 88 percent of white students, 81 percent of Hispanics and 74 percent of black students to be reading at or above grade level. For math, the goals are 92 percent of Asian kids to be proficient, whites at 86 percent, Hispanics at 80 percent and blacks at 74 percent. It also measures by other groupings, such as poverty and disabilities, reported the Palm Beach Post.

    The plan has infuriated many community activists in Palm Beach County and across the state.

    “To expect less from one demographic and more from another is just a little off-base,” Juan Lopez, magnet coordinator at John F. Kennedy Middle School in Riviera Beach, told the Palm Beach Post.

    JFK Middle has a black student population of about 88 percent.

    “Our kids, although they come from different socioeconomic backgrounds, they still have the ability to learn,” Lopez said. “To dumb down the expectations for one group, that seems a little unfair.”

    Others in the community agreed with Lopez’s assessment. But the Florida Department of Education said the goals recognize that not every group is starting from the same point and are meant to be ambitious but realistic.

    As an example, the percentage of white students scoring at or above grade level (as measured by whether they scored a 3 or higher on the reading FCAT) was 69 percent in 2011-2012, according to the state. For black students, it was 38 percent, and for Hispanics, it was 53 percent.

    In addition, State Board of Education Chairwoman Kathleen Shanahan said that setting goals for different subgroups was needed to comply with terms of a waiver that Florida and 32 other states have from some provisions of the federal No Child Left Behind Act. These waivers were used to make the states independent from some federal regulations.

    “We have set a very high goal for all students to reach in Florida,” Shanahan said.

    But Palm Beach County School Board vice-chairwoman Debra Robinson isn’t buying the rationale.

    “I’m somewhere between complete and utter disgust and anger and disappointment with humanity,” Robinson told the Post. She said she has been receiving complaints from upset black and Hispanic parents since the state board took its action this week.

    Robinson called the state board’s actions essentially “proclaiming racism” and said she wants Palm Beach County to continue to educate every child with the same expectations, regardless of race.

    so i hear the testing will be as follows

    2 year of school no arrests and can spell baggy , pass for negroes
    2 years of school no arrests other then for jihad and can spell behead, pass for muslims
    1 year of school cant spell nutthin but can have sex with a teacher, pass for all below the age of 14

    You left out the additional mandates.

    Jews need to wear yellow stars
    Irish and dogs need not apply for jobs as teachers.
    Any individual from a group exceeding expectations must take stupid pills.
    Children of Cambodian intellectuals go to the killing fields.
    Persons returning a book to he library must be told: "You didn't read that."
    Any individual exceeding the academic expectations for the group to which he elogsmust report to the reeducation center immediately.

    Maybe I'd dense, but I don't see the problem.

    Now, if they had a test, and required Orientals to get a 90 to pass, whites had to get an 88 to pass, but blacks could pass with a 74, that's crap.

    But as I read that, there is a test. You either pass it or you fail it. They want at least 90% of the Orientals to pass it. At least 88% of the whites to pass it. And at least 74% of the blacks to pass it.

    As long as the test does not get dumbed down, and as long as each race has to take the same test, what's the harm?

    All they are saying is, "We think blacks are stupid, and we're going to bust our butts to make 3/4 of them pass". Great. Show them they are wrong. Show them blacks are not stupid. All of 'em pass. Take off the do-rags, pull up your pants, quit speaking Ebonics and pay attention in school. Stop trying so damn hard to be A BLACK, and try being A STUDENT.

    What a surprise, a group of educators who finally accept the laws of genetics.

    Now, now, you're just being mean here. the fact is that the higher scoring groups come from FAMILIES that include a father and a mother. The lower scoring groups have abandoned the nuclear family in exchange for a sperm donor and a father in the form of a gubmit that deposits his checks into a credit card for mama and the chirruns. Because there's nobody that gives a **** for education in the household, and because Barry and the dems said they will take care of mama and the chirruns in exchange for a vote, as long as the sperm donor doesn't show up and start acting like a parent, you will continue to see lower performance in these socio-economic groups. The dems want this, and the blacks and hispanics buy into it because the money is good. To the hispanics benefit, they tend to have greater participation in the family than the blacks do, and it's because they see this as a cultural fiat. The blacks tend to spew their seed across da hood, knowing the mamas will all be taken care of by the gubmit and the grandmas (God bless grandma for giving a ****).

    There is strong peer pressure in inner city schools is to be like everyone else, so culture is more important than education. Girls bed down at an early age and the boys just act like fools and gangstas until they get their first stint in jail. It's all downhill from there, because now they're so ****ed up they cannot escape the gangster mode they have embraced, and teh girls are teenage moms when they are still learning how to be adolescence. Without a daddy to tell them their friends are all ****-ups, how will they ever know?

    The democrats used to control the black population with the KKK, but when that all blew up on them, they switched to this welfare mode and eliminated the father. If there's a father in the family, the welfare gets cut off. Pretty slick how the dems always seem to get what they want, and then they blame it all on the conservatives. LMAO, I cannot figure out why some people are so damn dumb that they believe every utterance from the mouth of democrats.

    The problem is that there should be no measurement of any demographic on any level. Establish the acceptable pass-fail based on whatever and be done. Either you pass or you don't. If nobody purple passes in a given test cycle, the there weren't any purple people smart enough to pass at that particular point in time. To expect a percentage of a certain socio-ethnic group to have a higher pass rate than another socio-ethnic group is inherently racist and eliteist.

    Call it like it is.

    What he said-However in a RUAL state with a pop of 45% black-North Carolina schools produce the most unreading and nonmath students IMO. And folks wonder why Finland is number one in the world in math students. Integration dumbed down the education in this country. But you are very right the gangsata "culture'" is making it nearly impossible for anyone to get a decent education. My solution- Draft any 14 yo - 17 yo (the younger the better) with ANY kind of misdemenor record into a bootcamp style "school" where a Marine DI is the papa.:D Kiss mama good by because your a## is the DI's.
