“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

To Democrats, everything is race-based

Political correctness and racial quotas plague government schools....

Racial and ethnic information, collected when children register for school, can inform school board decisions on reading programs, discipline procedures or admissions policies for gifted classes. The government looks at test scores of minority groups to help determine whether schools make the grade under the No Child Left Behind law. In an increasingly data-driven culture, educators also scrutinize such test scores and enrollment figures to pick programs meant to narrow achievement gaps and equalize academic opportunity.

In government schools, it's all about equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity. Honors programs aren't merit based, they have to have precise ethnic representation. Teachers must dumb down the curriculum to make sure even the stupidest kid in class can pass. Diversity training, ethnic sensitivity, and eco-awareness have replaced reading, history, economics, and math as the core areas of study. It's no wonder the next generation of leaders will be witless slackers who cannot speak clearly, think rationally and analytically, or make logical decisions....they've never had to. But they'll still thing really highly of themselves because their self-esteem will have been stroked for the last 20 years.
