New York: Requiring Teachers to be Literate is Racist

The New York state Board of Regents announced this week that they will eliminate a literacy test teachers currently have to take to become classroom certified. Because blacks and Hispanics fare worse on the test than whites, the board determined that the exam was leading to an unacceptable diversity outcome in New York’s teacher population.

The Academic Literacy Skills Test was implemented in 2013, when state officials were desperate to put more quality teachers into elementary school classrooms. Reform advocates argued that the test would help keep subpar teachers out of the school system and provide room for a higher caliber faculty.

But when only 46% of Hispanics and 41% of blacks were able to pass the test – as opposed to 64% of whites – critics said the state could not ignore the racial biases inherent in standardized exams. The test was challenged in court two years ago, but a federal judge ruled that there was no reason to believe the exam was discriminatory.

The Board of Regents insists that teachers will still have to pass a battery of examinations to ensure they are qualified, but the move has angered education advocates who see this as a dangerous form of political correctness.

“I think it’s absolutely outrageous,” said Mona Davids, president of the New York City Parents Union, in an interview with the New York Post. “Our children are already barely literate. The majority of them aren’t reading at grade level as it is. To dumb down the standards for incoming teachers with the ludicrous excuse to diversify the teaching pool is completely absurd.”

Davids told the Post that, ironically, minorities would be hurt by the move

“We already have ineffective teachers in our highest-needs neighborhoods,” she said. “These are black and Latino neighborhoods. It’s in these schools where you want to put teachers who can’t pass a basic English test?”

For as much as there is to celebrate about this country in terms of how far we’ve come on civil rights, we can’t let a desire to even the racial playing field blind us to reality. If minorities can’t pass a test and whites can, we agree: That’s a problem. But you don’t address disparity like that by getting rid of the standards! You address it by figuring out ways to improve minority test scores.

It’s not that hard to understand. It’s not like this test is asking people how many hits the Barenaked Ladies had in the 90s or which grocery store carries the best quinoa. There’s nothing discriminatory or biased about requiring basic literacy from the people teaching our children how to read!

Yeesh.

    website a little livelier.

  184. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself
    or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz
    answer back as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from.
    thank you

  185. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will
    try to get the hang of it!

  186. Howdy! This blog post could not be written any better! Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He continually kept talking about this. I most certainly
    will forward this information to him. Fairly certain he will have a
    very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!

  187. Fantastic blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that
    cover the same topics discussed in this article? I’d really
    love to be a part of online community where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thank you!

  188. What i do not realize is if truth be told how you are now not
    actually a lot more well-appreciated than you might be right now.
    You are so intelligent. You recognize thus significantly when it comes to
    this topic, made me personally consider it from so many various angles.
    Its like women and men aren’t interested until
    it’s something to do with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs great.
    At all times handle it up!

  189. Wonderful work! This is the kind of info that should be shared across
    the web. Shame on the search engines for no longer positioning this publish upper!
    Come on over and visit my web site . Thank you =)

  190. Hello! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how
    to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct
    this problem. If you have any suggestions, please
    share. Thank you!
