If you are concerned about the closing of 25 Detroit Public Schools, let the three ladies in this video tell you why you should be. They are not prophets. No! But they are seers. How do I know? I know because they have done what every man and woman of indigenous ascension should be compelled to do-that is, to REMEMBER. Remember our past relationship with an on-going faltering education system. A system that strategically displace and shuffle indigenous children around at will-like pawns on a chess board in favor of the queen; or even worse, like street whores forced to perform on a corner that best fit the needs of their greedy heartless pimp.
But I remember, back in the 50’s and 60’s when the public school curriculum was plentiful for the Negro. Back when we could choose a major and study in it for college. We were offered orchestra, concert choir and glee club. We had home economics with a fully staffed kitchen and sewing room with Singer sewing machines. We had an Olympic size pool, a competitive swim team and swim meets. Yes Negros could swim. We had ballet and jazz class. We were offered every sport you could think of including field hockey. (Go figure). But most importantly, we had hot lunches made from scratch. My favorite lunch was meatloaf with mashed potatoes and creamed corn. The buns were made fresh right on campus. I tell you something else we had. WE had good grades. THERE WAS NO NEGRO CHILD LEFT BEHIND BECAUSE YOUR BEHIND WAS IN JEOPARDY. So when I read or hear the phrase “ Low performance school” I have to ask. What the hell is that?
It seems to me that Detroit Public Schools are closing due to the poor performance of Engler, Granholm and Snyder, not the students.
But speaking of greedy heartless pimps… Who in the hell is this Betsy Devos? Seems that privatization is gearing our children towards her agenda..
We got our work cut out for us family. So we have to answer the call to action of these three ladies put forth. It’s time to put our heads together to make the appropriate change. It’s time for us to take control of our children’s education. It’s time for a plan of action!
