Default 'African American Academy' Set to Close If Improvements Go Unmet

'African American Academy' Set to Close If Improvements Go Unmet
Race; Posted on: 2007-12-24 10:29:12 [ Print / Instant Flyer |

Seattle's African American Academy, funded by White taxpayers, was supposed to be a model for educating black children.*
After almost two decades, it has come to represent the district's continuing failure to raise black students' academic achievement.
Seventh-grade math test scores at the K-8 school are the lowest in the district. Enrollment has declined, from a peak of 508 students six years ago to 339 today. When the district chose someone from outside Seattle to take over as principal this fall, the school's backers protested the decision, a controversy that threatens to drain more students from the school's half-full building on South Beacon Hill.
Now, as part of a new commitment to boost low-performing schools in the South End, the district is pledging $462,769 this year enough for six teachers to the academy, along with a math coach and a reading coach. If the school doesn't show progress over the next few years, the district may close it.

LOL, niggers will never excel, regardless of the advantages they are given.
