The state of New York has decided it’s OK for schoolteachers to be functionally illiterate, as long as they meet diversity quotas.
More black and Hispanic teachers were failing the “Academic Literacy Skills Test” than white teachers. Because diversity of staff is more important than the quality of instructional staff, the state decided that passing the test will no longer be a requirement to teach in New York schools.
BTW, isn’t there additional bigotry in the idea that while white kids can learn from teachers of any race, black kids can only learn from black teachers, and Hispanics from Hispanic teachers? Or is it just me.
