Problems with our Schools

A teenage schoolgirl was arrested for racism. She was placed in a group with a few other children all of Asian origin only one of whom spoke English. The other children spoke to each other in a foreign language and, since she didn't understand, she asked to change groups. Her teacher told her she was being racist and eventually she was arrested by police for it, although released without charge. (Hat Tip: LGF)

This emerges in the same week that it was reported that English is a second language in half of primary schools in central London. It is also the week in which the head of the Local Government Association said that there needed to be quotas in schools to avoid racial segregation.

Trevor Phillips, head of the Commission for Racial Equality, said that the problem of segregation was due to "white flight": "To put it crudely, white parents particularly are unhappy about putting children in schools where they think their children - they would put it - are going to be in a minority."

Is it any wonder that parents do not want their kids to be in a school with a large number of children from an ethnic minority. In this crazy world of multi-culturalism, it isn't the foreign children that need to learn English but the English kids who get arrested for not putting up with it. Of course England is becoming segregated because the majority are being treated like second class citizens in order not to offend the sensibilities of the minority.

If this continues it will play into the hands of the racists on both sides.
