The Scourge of Whiteness

St. Louis Park, Minnesota, used to have very good public schools. I suppose it was a matter of demographics: the suburb was, at one time, referred to as “St. Jewish Park.” But those days are long gone. Today the St. Louis Park school district is in the hands of the same kinds of morons who generally run our public schools. Minnesotan David Strom has the story:

The Saint Louis Park School District, located in the suburbs of Minneapolis, is hiring an assistant superintendent to “examine the presence of Whiteness” in the district.

It’s a good gig, paying between $134,000 and $201,000.

But it would be more plausible to say that the problem is an absence of whiteness:

Enrollment of White students has been dropping, with only 53% of the students being White, and as they have fled to other districts, the problem of White Supremacy has gotten worse, leading to horrible test scores.

Funny how that happens. The fewer whites, the more white supremacy.

It’s a troubling thing, to see how Whiteness is harming minority students, and the district is working hard to root it out. As the student body and staff become less White, Whiteness has become an increasing problem.

No doubt testing is a White concept too, so perhaps eliminating measurement of student performance will help improve student success rates.

David isn’t kidding. That is exactly what left-wing school boards and administrators have in mind. This is how hard the district is trying to root out white supremacy:

[T]he job description indicates that the role will have a very particular focus. The first sentence of the position’s summary says, “the Assistant Superintendent proactively supports the Superintendent to create and communicate anti-racist structures and systems, works to interrupt systems of oppression, and serves as a role model for culturally relevant pedagogy.”

The school district continues its summary of the position by saying the assistant superintendent must be “unwaveringly committed to anti-racist actions and use data to adapt and sustain their efforts towards racial equity to plan, direct, and coordinate action to achieve the mission and strategic objectives.”

I will hazard a guess that the percentage of white students in the St. Louis Park public schools will continue to plummet, that as a consequence White Supremacy will be rampant, and the schools will get worse and worse. The only sane response is to flee the public schools.
