Sorry to say, Red Clay’s school board CSW’s authorizing and oversight agent goes back into coma. Kilroy thinks its time for changing of the Red Clay guards. WTF ? Blackout on board minutes? And what part of required monthly financial reports doesn’t CSW understand? Well it looks like Kilroy is heading back to the Red Clay mountain for another bitch session.
And back to that achievement gap ! See page 65; 67.14% / 1277 students of Delaware Tech’s graduates were white and 17.82% / 339 students were black.
Parents and students considering Delaware Teach read the data and pay attention to the jobs in relationship to field of student. Starts on page 77%! Might help you to decide what field of study you elect.
I urge parents of minority children to wake-up and see the truth re: data and be cautious of the Markell hype. Language and math skills are the foundation for success! Title 1 started out all about Reading and for a good reason!
The achievement gap between Delaware black and white students continues beyond high school graduation re: college remediation classes.
Graduating class 2012: Only 30% of Delaware African-American high school graduates enrolled in college compared to 41% white students. Overall only 39% of Delaware high school graduates enrolled in college.
73% of African-American students enrolled in college required remediation classes whereas 43% white students required remediation classes.
As far as the race for those world class jobs out in the global economy, you can bet the best jobs will go to the top 10% of college graduates re: achievement. The struggle for African-American students will continue into the college years.
Sorry to folks, the race to close the achievement gap isn’t priority one and is secondary to supply the economy with top performing students. Do you honestly think companies like DuPont will hire every graduating chemist our colleges can pump out? From a global perspective companies like DuPont will be going after the top 1%. One thing for sure, pretty much all college graduates will end up with college loan debt and those noting securing a job in their field of study will be paying college loan payments for the next 15-20 years.
