Canada's first black school was approved last night (http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2008/01/30/4801502-sun.html).

What a dumbass idea! :susp:

What's next? Separate drinking fountains? :?

Let's begin separating other races and putting them in their own schools too.
Pretty soon, we'll have everyone going to school with their "own kind" and the world will be a better place. :roll:

Again, I have to say...
What a dumbass idea! :mad:

Yeah don't you just love how it's ok for anyone but whites to have their own school, funds, workplaces, etc.

It definitely sets a dangerous precedent.

I can understand that the idea was born out of a need for black kids to do better in school. The dropout rate for them is apparently in the 40% range. But surely there must be a better way to handle the problem than the creation of a "black school".

I’m afraid that in a couple of years those 11 idiots and others who may think the same way will make Canada a dangerous place ?! :cry:

Are you serious? Don't they get that the problem isn't being in a school with different races but the school system? Having mixed race schools teaches them to be respectful and to not be racist.

Exactly! Segregation of schools will enforce segregation of races.
One of the great things about Canada is that people of all races live together in peace.
Now we're saying it's OK to live together, after we've educated you separately. :roll:

Wasn't the whole "civil rights" movement about getting rid of segregated schools (among other things)?

Canadian press had wrongly presented the project as a form of segregation, or suggested that students who attend would be seen as unable to survive in the real world.

I wonder what will they do next? Maybe segregated washrooms, restaurant, buses….

Oh, wait a second, they had that already 40 years ago…
Hmmm… it looks like we’re heading back in time to the “good old times”

Some freaking morons should have their heads checked or better yet put away in nut house and kept in segregated rooms

I don't understand this separate education thing either, and it is not just in Canada. In the UK the separation is more along religious lines or Faith Schools as they are called over here. The best part of my multi-cultural education was that I came into contact with other children of different races and faiths. It made me more understanding, tolerant and forgiving of others.

It does seem the world is going backwards at times. It is a recipe for sowing mistrust in society if you ask me.

There are plenty of alternative (Catholic included) schools in Toronto that are financed by taxpayers. I prefer strong academic schools that are ethnically mixed, religion and culture can be taught at home but I won't judge others.

What on earth is it aiming to do? The original article is gone but, judging the book by its cover, it sounds like a dumbass idea to me.

Now there is a school I would have no trouble with. As long as they have a hefty budget and security guards that frisk students trying to smuggle in wax strips. I hate those things :mad:

Well, it is now open.

Since it only has 85 students, I can only hope that most parents understand what a backwards idea this is.

I understand that the idea of children born blacks from the need to do better in school. dropout rate is 40% of them, apparently between. But of course, must be a better way to treat the problem as to create a black school.

This is so dumb. Who came up with this idea? If there is anything we should be proud of as Canadians is the fact that we have no racial issues like our neighbors.

Africentric education is not black segregation.
May 23, 2008 — Restructure!

Toronto’s Africentric school is open for everyone, not just black students. This is not racial segregation. Everyone needs an Africentric education.

The Africentric grade school will seek to hire a number of black teachers and use a more global, less Europe-focused curriculum to engage more students of colour. It will be open to children of all backgrounds from anywhere in the city.

Currently, our public grade schools are Eurocentric in focus, and children of all colours are led to believe that science, history, and technology starts and ends with Europe and European colonies. Eurocentric schools are not white-only schools. If you grew up in Canada, you had a Eurocentric education, not matter what colour you are.

If you believe that Africentrism is biased, you should also believe that Eurocentrism is biased. If you believe that Africentric education is biased and Eurocentric education is neutral, it means that your worldview is Eurocentric.

Unfortunately, too many Canadians fail to distinguish between “Africentric” and “black only”, and even some CBC news reporters think “Africentric” is interchangeable with “black-focused”. This creates mass confusion among the general public, and instead of quality debate, the general Canadian public reveals the extent of its miseducation.

It's a dumbass idea, Shinto.
There's nothing wrong with a less European view, but the answer is not an African view to counter balance it.
There's no such thing as "reverse racism". It's just racism in another direction.

How about a human-centric education which doesn't segregate us?

Their reason for opening these schools is "No child left behind" idea. They are lowering the standards by making the programs easier. Its not just a racist way of dealing with this issue, it is also wrong to give a "pass" just because you want to claim higher numbers of graduates students.
