Still Collecting Data

“The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a landmark piece of civil rights legislation in the United States that outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.” Wikipedia

From the Federal Register:

Purpose of Program: . . . award grants on a competitive basis for the Asian American and Pacific Islander Data Disaggregation program. The grants will be awarded to State educational agencies in consortia with local educational agencies to obtain and evaluate disaggregated data on English Learner AAPI subpopulations beyond the existing seven racial and ethnic categories within the school community.

Background: There has been ongoing and increasing interest among States in using data to identify effective practices that can be used by educators to improve student outcomes in our education system and in disseminating those practices. Comprehensive data collection systems are integral to enabling States to identify and disseminate such practices.

In addition, a number of States have found that disaggregated data on student performance is critical for identifying and developing strategies for closing educational opportunity gaps among different student groups. These efforts have included collecting additional data about K-12 students, disaggregating these data, and making this information available to educators and the public . . .

Estimated Available Funds: $1,000,000.

Estimated Number of Awards: Up to 4 total.

Another million dollars to collect data on our children that will be available to the public with the purpose of furthering the discrimination, standardization, segregation, and dehumanization of America’s children.

This illegal activity must end.

What additional data is needed about how children learn?

Children, regardless of their race, color, religion, sex, or national origin learn in the same way, through the experiences they have and are allowed to share.

Providing four states with $250,000 to improve student outcomes for a particular group of citizens is not only illegal, it is immoral as well.

We must provide every child in America with a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of every child towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens that will uphold the Constitution and end racism is this country.
