Sorry, how is it true at all?

Its not true at all. Bold statements like this are made by petulant uninformed teenagers who lurk on ********* website like this.

It's not because they're black.

It's because of the areas that blacks live in.

Honestly, look at the ghetto schools, they barely even try to teach people in some of these places.

**** sucks but it's true, may not be their fault, but it's true.

"Let's see: I am of African heritage, I live in a relatively wealthy suburb with decent schools, and I could probably do well off with an education if I tried, hmm... ***** FUKK DA PO-LEESE DA WHITE PPL LOOKEN @ US LIK WE CRAZY ***** BANG BANG"

In all honesty, there are only some in my lower-middle class suburban area that act like this. Many are still into hip hop and rap culture but they're not that ignorant. They're a lot better off than the rednecks though (but that's just the South).
#615 to #345 - anisbanana (08/02/2013) [-]
The areas the blacks live in?

They live in black areas. Schools are ghetto because ******* attend them. I live in a mostly white district with pretty much no blacks and the average SAT score here is 2100.

Blacks make their areas into what they are. If there weren't gangs everywhere and they didn't lurk at night breaking into houses, it would be a much better place.

**** sucks but it's true, it is their fault, so it's true.

Perhaps if you were to look it up you would find that the Black community in America is the statistically lowest scoring group when comes to anything school related.

The problem is you're comparing Finland with the US. The two countries are very different both in size, influence, government and culture. Finland might not have colored immigrants, but they have immigrants from former Soviet countries and other poorer countries.

I think you should take a look at how the finnish school is build up instead of blurring out racial slurs and create stereotypes.

Remember only a sith deals in absolutes.

Well I'm not blaming race or anything like that, I know race has nothing to do with it. I was merely telling the man that there have been studies that show the black community on average scores lower than any other community in America. Also if you reread my comment I never once actually blurted out a racial slur.
User avatar #355 to #333 - thekinganon (08/02/2013) [-]
We are products of the environments we are brought up in, don't blame the race, most of these poor black people life in poverty and the schools have given up on these kids before they even start learning anything.
User avatar #542 to #355 - fuckinniggers (08/02/2013) [-]
I know, I wasn't blaming race. The man I was replying to said "is it true based on a statistic?" I merely pointed out that there have been studies done showing that the black community has the lowest average score. I know that a lot of the schools that most of those kids go to are terrible but that shouldn't stop them. My father was able to leave the poverty and now has two masters degrees. All it takes is hard work... and credit cards... dad used a lot of those during college.
#555 to #355 - comradvlad (08/02/2013) [-]
Wrooong... to a certain extent. Yes we are a product of our environment to some extent. However how we deal with that environment is different. Look at the old arabian civilizations before they turned to **** . In the dessert, most prosperous people of their time. Lets look at a more recent example.... The earthquake in Haiti... You know that island has the Dominican republic on the other side. Arguable identical environment... Haiti is a ******** . Throughout the history of man there has been NO successful black empire, period. Asians, Arabs, Whites have all had their turns multiple times. So whats up?

#614 to #318 - revanthewin (08/02/2013) [-]
Before I start let me say that there are exceptions to what I'm saying, but this is how it works majority of the time.

It's true because of how our culture is right now. It's cool to be uneducated and to waste all your money on clothes and ****** rims for your car. It's cool to **** around and drop out of high school. It's cool to make fun of the one white kid at your school.

This last reason is the reason you don't see many whites in black ghettos. In many areas, blacks are just as racist as many whites. Racism is picked up by children from their parents as they grow, and as there's already more blacks in poor neighborhoods than whites, the white kids get picked on.

When the white kids get picked on and singled out, it makes them not want to live in that environment for the rest of their lives, and the way out is basically handed to them through the school system. The thing is, it's just as easy for the black kids too. They just don't bother doing good most of the time. They have no reason to leave the ghetto. They get welfare, all their friends are there, and the way they see it going out to actually make something of themselves is a lot of work for something they don't really want.

So in the end, the white kids go off to college, the black kids stay in the ghetto and live off welfare, and in time their parents die, they have kids, and their kids pick up their morals and values. The next generation of blacks does the same thing as their parents for the most part, and the negro community is stuck in a self perpetuating cycle where they never make anything of themselves, their kids pick up their morals and never make anything of themselves, and most blacks are stuck in ghettos and low income areas that only become worse and worse as time goes on.

tl;dr, black people are poor because they're too cool for school, but not too cool for welfare.

Racism is influenced. If you live in a enviroment where you are influenced by racism, then there's a big chance of you becoming one also.

I reckon disruptive ******* are the sole reason why they divide classes set on the kid's ability in the first place. If you don't wanna learn, that's entirely up to you but don't ******* disrupt the class by constantly pissing the teacher off or getting into needless arguments and I certainly don't wanna stay after school just because of you disruptive, attention-seeking cunts.
#484 to #330 - katsikis (08/02/2013) [-]
Thats actually true though. I remember I was in an Academic Algebra 2 class, and I was 1 of 4 kids in there that wasn't black (1 other was white and 2 others were latino) and every day our black teacher would try and teach us about algebra but these ignorant black kids would always start arguments with her, and complain about taking a quiz or something like that. I remember I had to go to a study session with that teacher after school just so I could pass the class.

Damn, this is actually true. The Finnish school system allows teachers to actually punish the kids if they act like little ********* (correct me if I'm wrong), not let them go outside and play football, like here in Norway. The teachers here are weakhearted, and they fear of being being called racists and such, because most of the trouble making brats are in fact foreigners. I remember having an Albanian ******* in my class in junior high who acted like a retarded gangster ****** thug bitch. He seriously ruined every single lecture he was present, basically ruined them for all my classmates. He's often sent hopelesly to the principal, but when to play table tennis instead.

I'm not going to say that that is not true, because it does have some truth behind it.

In Finland, the schools that have a large amount of immigrants are doing much worse than the "whiter" schools.

that being said, for example, Norway's immigration situation is pretty much the same as Finlands, there ain't all that many ******* there, but still in the PISA tests norway has always been below Finland

Well I feel like it's fairly obvious that Finland is not nearly as much of a melting pot as the US is. From what I have read, the Finnish largely resent immigrants as many of them don't bring additional productivity to the nation.

But I don't think that you can argue that the original comment is ENTIRELY wrong. It's actually true, but the reason that it is true is far more cruel and disturbing than this comment in itself.

I think that the fact that a whole country upholds these rules is pretty special. I mean, not all American schools follow this policy right? You just mentioned one school while OP mentioned all schools within an entire country, that is a big difference to me.

My opinion on the matter: Children are 'forced' to choose way too much for their age when it comes to the future of his/her life. At the age of 12 I had to choose the difficulty of my education for the upcoming 6 years while I didn't even know what would happen. It's ******* ridiculous.

-Refer to teachers as Mr./Mrs., it's more about respect for the teacher than anything else
-Even in my higher level classes, probably about an hour-90 mins homework each night, but usually no more than half an hour per class
-7 50-minute periods each day + lunch (half an hour), four core subjects (math, science, english, social studies) and three of anything from study hall to underwater basket weaving to Ancient Greek
-My school has the 4th largest enrollment in the state (2500+ students)
-It's probably about 80% white, I rarely see anyone who can't make friends because of how diverse everyone's interests are
-How would you rate my school from 1-10?

You just skipped all the important details about how their entire infrastructure is based upon the fact that the system is liquid. People are not enforced to do anything in general.
Just like Norwegian prison's, we rehabilitate people instead of enslaving them and trap them (in 99.99999% of the cases, breivik will stay in jail forever).
Also, what american school you go to makes a huge difference.

This only works when the majority of people is on the same level. Yes there will be a few tard but they wont draag everyone down cause there is a few. Yes there will be a few geniuses and they will still achieve whatever because they will be working hard and doing other work outside of class. The system in america is failing because the majority are tards AND they keep lowering the standards to make tards normal. This means the average ids get dragged down as well.

when I was in public school (America), I was put into the "gifted" classes because I had an above-average IQ.

it was awesome, because we were learning algebra when I was only in like 4th or 5th grade (so 10 or 11 years old, right?), and they generally stimulated our creativity and taught us to use our intelligence the best we could.

when I got to high school, we still had our gifted class for my freshman year, but after that, they cancelled it, and fired the lady in charge of it (they later re-hired her and made her a secretary).

what kind of school destroys a program designed to stimulate intelligent kids, and help the gifted and intelligent youth better themselves? like.. what the **** , man? THAT'S WHAT THE SCHOOL IS DESIGNED TO DO.

also, public schools are starting to assimilate the mentally challenged kids into the regular-ed classes, which is honestly detrimental to their development, and it slows down everyone's learning.
(my mother worked as a special-ed instructor for a long time, and now she teaches freshman history for several regular classes, a retarded/ED class, and an honors class, so she sees how the assimilation affects how they learn)

You tried a lot less hard because of it, I bet. This is why I hate equality in education.

In my school system, you could get into harder classes based on what you did the year previous. My first year they put me into college prep english (a level above the stupids in general, where most normal kids are) because my English teachers in middle school were dickwads.

The next year I was in honors, and I made it into the advanced preparation class by senior year (the only year they HAVE ap english). Passed it with a B+.

The problem was though that by my senior year the guidance councilors were forcing teachers into tossing everyone, regardless of skill level, into advanced preparation. So my AP teacher had to deal with tossing them back out for the first quarter.

So? I see no problem in paying taxes as long as I see a clear benefit from it
Taxes are not an evil scheme for "The Man" to take your money, they are an agreed fee to fund what everyone needs and uses (education, roads, health).
Taxes are only bad when they're high for no discernible reason (paying 20% tax and having ****** roads) then you know something fishy is happening, but if you can clearly see the difference your taxes make there's no reason to complain.

It's an easy concept. I wonder how no country gets it.

Germany tries to improve every year in league tables and yet fails every year and thus they're making it harder, because they think: "Oh, Finnish pupils are more intelligent than ours? Better let them do harder stuff, that'll fix the problem".

Truth is: School should be made by people who aren't either complete morons or 80 years old. And I truly never got how they don't just accept former pupils (i.e. pupils who've graduaded not more than 3 years ago) to help them. They know better than those pricks.

the problem with american school systems is that they are passing people that didn't do anything. It is illegal to hold back someone in elementary. How is that fair ? If a kid can't read at a second grade level how is he expected to read at a third grade level next year? In detroit right now 80% of highschool graduates have a grade 3 reading level. How can they get jobs? How can they do anything for that matter. The worst part is most of the time the kid gets prescribed ritalin for having "adhd" when really he's just stupid. The pills remove all motivation and it makes the student worse. And sometimes they drag in a second teacher especially for that one kid who in the end disrupts the class even more. It's like their system is purposely meant to ruin future generations and to breed first class idiots to run our "workforce". I am disgusted that my taxes go to those detroit ****** welfare checks.

You need to do some research. The 80% of highschools in _____ reading at a _______ level starts from two articles. One by CBC, the other by the Huffington post. Both completely dumbed down by the title. The CBC one said 80% of NYC students were illiterate. The actual fact was that they weren't ready for a college program. And that was 80% of the applying group.

The HP article said 80% of American high schoolers read at a 5th grade level, but it was actually that they were reading 5th grade books. The most popular series at that time? The Hunger Games, which dominated the top 3 of almost all upper grades, just as Harry Potter would have years before. But The Hunher games is considered a 5th grade level book. Lord of the Flies is considered 5th grade too, The Great Gatsby on a 7th, Romeo and Juliet 8th, hell, 1984 is considered grade 8 and Animal Farm grade 7.

Failed to mention that they every year, hand pick students for their national tests.
So the "stupid", or "Less intelligent" children are not allowed to participate

You actually can start school at age six. The Finnish school system is made out to be great, but it really has some problems. One of the greater problems is that the teachers can't do much about the more troublesome kids disrupting others, and that means that the whole class can suffer as a result. On the other hand the teaching is really hands on, and if a student needs assistance they will receive it. The one thing that all these stories leave out is that homes and parents are very active during the early school years, and that means that the kids will receive support and assistance at home too. I have personally experienced the system as working, but I've also seen some of my friends being screwed over.

yh there is the special education class(or something) where people not behaving themself/having trouble learning

are sent

i went to one of those due to my behaviour towards people in general
User avatar #314 to #310 - rikter (08/02/2013) [-]
Some times that works, but in my experience those sent to special education (or whatever) weren't the real issue. A friend was sent to special education because he wouldn't talk to anybody but his friends, while a violent, and noisy, jackass couldn't be dealt with because he was so out of control.

dont really understand why they would send people like that over there.

i was send for disrespecting my teacher and telling another one to "go **** himself"

but in our school it really worked well with the class

Yeah, teachers have had their rights stripped here. Kids showing up drunk and with knives... It's a bit silly honestly....

Also the bit about uniforms. There might not be one but that doesn't mean that there aren't silent rules and norms. I received pressure to get rid of my ponytail, and some of my goth friends got the same thing for their appearance. All I've said is based on my own experience, and might not apply to every school and every person. Thought it should still be said

Dude, I'd rather have a dress code, than a ******* uniform. After a while, you really start to feel like you are going crazy. I have literally had problems where I would blink and see every person near me in Dark blue collared shirts and khakis. They wonder why kids shoot up schools.
User avatar #293 to #146 - stanleys (08/02/2013) [-]
At my school we a have dress code to polo shirts only, and they must be solid grey, yellow, white, or maroon. As for pants, it's usually khaki pants or cargo shorts, usually a khaki or similar color. I really don't think it's that bad but dear god, the bitching people do about the dress code is ridiculous. The only argument that I agree with is the fact that polos are hot as hell and probably only a fourth of the classrooms have air conditioning

i had long hair and never received any **** for it.and the goth girls of our school were also left in peace

I am so goddamn jealous right now. For me it was first the hair, then the pants, then the piercings. I didn't like the treatment.
User avatar #351 to #334 - angelious ONLINE (08/02/2013) [-]
oh well. to be fair i think my school had other things to worry about than the way people dressed.

after all my class was given the title of being the worst behaving students the teachers had ever seen in their co rear
User avatar #171 - kwanzalord (08/02/2013) [-]
This environment breeds the idea of studying and education being "fun".
Therefore more students get behind their studying and do great.

Opposed to hard core competition.
Japan is now having the problem that students are no longer going to school due to how much pressure they feel.
Kids are slowly degrading. This is actually true in other asian countries too.

You are mistaken on a few points.

1) It is only compulsory up until high school
Therefore, students are not required to attend school past 9th grade.

So yes, students can "stop" attending school once they are done with middle school.

Just because a law says one thing, that doesn't mean people will follow it at all times.
Some reasons why they don't attend school
1) delinquency
2) bullying

and how they get away with it (even though it's the law)
1)Teachers do not want themselves or the school to be held responsible for it, so let it slide to not bring attention to it
2) Teachers do not want that student to attend anyways, it may rub off on the others (bad attitude, depression)

Well maybe cause Finland doesn't have so many ******* ******* and sand ******* like the rest of Wetsern and Northern Europe.
User avatar #572 to #565 - kyoutu (08/02/2013) [-]
Actually sand ******* tend to do quite well in school. Hence why there is so many sand ****** doctors. Form my experience at school they respected that they could get a good education in school and the white British kids took it for granted and a lot of them ****** it up.

******* though, they're stupid.

How is dividing kids in groups based on abilities a bad thing? You should teach kids what they need, in The Netherlands you get divided in different levels of education, somebody who is bad at learning but great in practical skills get taught what they need rather than algebra.

User avatar #505 to #495 - nustix (08/02/2013) [-]
True, I sometimes forget how ignorant people can be but still, I would hate it to be in the same class as someone who doesn't understand basic algebra, now we can fully focus us on the more complex stuff.
