The following is taken word-for-word from a blurb I saw in today’s morning newspaper.
The Trump administration is planning to roll back Obama-era policies aimed at ensuring that minority children are not unfairly disciplined, arguing that the efforts have eased up on punishment and contributed to rising violence in the nation’s schools.
The decision culminates a nearly year-long effort begun by the Trump administration after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The deaths of 17 students and staff members last February prompted lawmakers in both parties to demand tougher gun laws.
But President Trump abandoned that focus and instead empowered a school safety commission, led by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Almost immediately, the commission turned away from guns, and instead scrutinized the Obama administration’s school discipline policies, though none of the most high-profile school shootings were perpetrated by black students.
Talk about implementing the wrong solution for the wrong problem. This article is just another example of the racist nature of the entire Trump administration. In my humble opinion, of course.
Further proof that we have the wrong president. A very, very wrong president.
