Ethnicity causes bad school grades after all

A funny news story from politically correct Holland:

Ethnic heritage causes bad school grades after all

Immigrant children still get bad grades at the start of elementary school. But since last year schools have been getting less grants to help these children. New research has shown that the basis of this new government policy is incorrect.

Elementary schools have been receiving extra money for years for children who have difficulties with learning. But until 2006 schools would get another extra grant if these children were from an immigrant background.

Minister of education Van der Hoeven has abolished this extra grant. According to her it's solely the parents low education that causes children to have difficulties with learning. Van der Hoeven believes the childrens ethnic background has nothing to do with it. That's why she decided to give elementary schools the same amount of money for all children who come from low educated parents - regardless of their ethnicity.

But according to research done by the Kohnstamm Institute at the University of Amsterdam the basis of this new policy is incorrect. According to them at the start of elementary school nearly all immigrant children have bad grades compared to indigenous children. Only the 'black' kids with the highest educated parents are doing slightly better than the 'white' kids with the lowest educated parents. "So the governments claim that ethnic background plays no role when someone is getting bad grades at school is incorrect" according to researcher Jaap Roeleveld.

The new policy was carefully introduced one step at a time and since last year it has become official. And now schools that have many indigenous children from low educated parents receive more grants while schools with many immigrant children are getting less than they used to.

The new rules also caused the number of bad students to decrease. Just before the new rules were introduced there were 350.000 bad students, now it's 207.000. Because of this decrease the government wants to cut another 50 million on the schools budget for low educated children. But the school boards are angry, "The reality behind the statistics hasn't changed" according to a spokesperson.

Equality is cool until everyone has to share the same responsibilities. Racism is bad unless people can benefit from it. And as usual our social elite will draw the conclusions, not you.

The wholely fraudulant "mystery" of the universal academic "racial achievement gap" must go down in history as the greatest example of modern human cowardice extant! It's rather like pretending we don't understand why fire is hot and ice cold...

Invite a shitload of illiterate foreign workers; expect their spawn will miraculously grow brains at the sight of a book. WRONG.

'Expert': [my liberal translation]: 'Really, they're as smart as the native dutch kids, but in the tests there's all them words they don't understand, so they make more mistakes.'
Their fucking parents were born here. Stupidity is a taboo even stronger than ethnicity.

Inequality is the metataboo. This is caused by the dogmatic Harm Principle which in its roundabout way is actually responsible for egregious harm effects of all sorts today.
