During the pre-Civil War era, a number of states in America had laws on the books to prevent Black Americans from learning to read and write. Both White and Black people risked "flogging" (public beatings), fines and other penalties for "teaching a slave to read".
During the American Apartheid era (1864-1964), Black American schools received "used books" discarded by White schools, had teachers who received "practical teaching certificates" to teach in Black schools and education facilities for Black Americans offered training only up to the 7th grade level.
The Department of Education decided to STOP teaching "cursive writing" in public schools SEVEN YEARS ago however, the Florida court "poked fun" at Trayvon Martin's girl-friend (during the Zimmerman trial) who stated during her testimony that she could not read "cursive writing".
The young woman who was mocked is a product of Amercan public school education and is like thousands of young Americans who have never been exposed to the art of writing in cursive form.
Following the Trayvon Martin-Zimmerman trial, many Black Americans are steeped in emotions similar to that demonstrated in 1963 which fueled the march on Washington, DC. That was 50 years ago.
What has improved for the Black American since then- it is clear that American justice is not the same for all Americans. Black Americans have been marching for centuries and have barely moved an inch. There has to be more effective ways to command change.
Insanity is defined as "doing the same thing repeatedly expecting a different outcome". It is past due that Black Americans change strategy in their quest for justice and equality. American public education does not offer the ticket to success that Black forefathers dreamed of.
Across the country, the public school system is in trouble. Governments are claiming there is not enough money to keep schools open and pay teachers what the teachers are demanding they are worth. Parents are dissatisfied with the curriculum. Perhaps the availability of the Internet eliminates the need for public schools altogether! If parents are able to access a home schooling curriculum on their computers, can we abolish the public school system and replace it with home schooling? How would this affect our culture, our economy, and the social behavior of children? Are enough parents equipped to do it? Could a curriculum be devised on the Internet that would educate students through the 12th grade? Would students still be able to pass standardized tests to get into college?

Often as Black Americans progress from kindergarten to elementary levels of school, too many believe that "learning" is "acting white". While this sounds strange to some, consider what the Black child is being taught: "George Washington is the father of our country"; "Columbus discovered American in 1492", etc. George Washington OWNED slaves--- Native Americans were living in North America before Columbus showed up.
Many alert, intelligent Black children are over the myth. "White is right". The information presented and graded upon has little relevance to a Black child. The "exclusion" of the Black child's history (pre-slavery, slavery and now) in America public educational system causes a disconnect in the Black child and a lack of interest in "American public school selective teachings".
By almost any measure, there are gaps between Black American students and White or Asian students with respect to standard test scores, English diction and written communications. Perhaps the tools employed in teaching the fundamentals are ineffective. Stimulating discussions of slavery in American is scant in public schools. There is no avenue by which a child learns of the "TransAtlantic Slave Trade" despite it extending over 500 years. There is no discussion of the "Segregrated Years in America after slavery (1864- 1964)" , as bad if not worse than South African Apartheid.
Well documented information offered in books: The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, The Isis Papers, The Fall of America, Message to the Blackman, Race Matters, Miseducation of the Black Man, Invisible Man, are never on student reading lists nor is the information deemed important historical issues to be explored in the American public school classroom.
