Valuing individualism and planning for the future no longer are listed as examples of racism on the Seattle Public Schools web site.
. . . Caprice Hollins, the district’s director of equity and race relations, said the site wasn’t intended to “develop an ‘us against them’ mind-set.”
But she may have stepped into a second controversy by saying the site also wasn’t intended “to hold onto unsuccessful concepts such as melting pot or colorblind mentality.”
BTW, a Partnership for Learning poll shows most blacks and Hispanics in Washington state support using the state test as a graduation requirement. Sounds like they want their children to meet the same colorblind standards as others. They might even be thinking of the future.
