QOTD: "...Big Racism is trying to lay the predicate for another round of Brown v. Board of Education lawsuits aimed at imposing racial gerrymandering on student populations and the makeup of faculty in elementary and secondary schools. This report is just another small part of the grand scheme.

Many factors go into improving student performance. Diversity in the faculty may be one, no one knows. Even if it is, the cost and injustice of achieving such an ideal is too great for the benefit. How does having minority children in predominantly minority schools interacting with mostly minority teachers prepare them for the work force? What are the ethical considerations of assigning minority teachers to low performing schools based on their race then evaluating them based on student achievement when we know the teacher’s race more likely than not can’t influence that outcome? Shouldn’t experienced and motivated teachers, regardless of race, be given incentives to move to low performing schools rather than using an “alternative credentialing” process to hire minority teachers. (I apologize here if I seem to conflate schools with high minority populations with low performing schools. This isn’t the case.)

By defining diversity as something that is good, despite no evidence that it actually produces anything other than grievance mongering, the left attempts to encourage racial animosity and division for their own political ends and personal gain." --streiff

The VA debacle can be easily remedied - pass a law that veterans of the legislatures and other government bureaucrats must use the same medical plans and facilities as military veterans.

BTW - In the 2011 campaign, Newt Gingrich brought up the scandalous non-care that Vets get at the VA and recommended mainstreaming them into civilian hospitals and clinics...assuring they got the same care as private citizens.

This is not a new problem. There have always been waiting lists and horrible conditions in VA hospitals and clinics. Military medicine can be sub-standard at times.
