What role does race play in determining success in education?
I don't think it plays much at all. I do think however that family background is one of the most significant drivers of educational outcome and that is tied to race. In parts of the UK ethnic minorities tend to be less well off, have parents who work longer hours or single parents depending on the race. These factors impact on attainment at school much more than simply the race you are. Just today there was a report out stating that students of parents who own a home are more likely to go onto university, get a better education, get a better job and in turn own their own home. Wealth breads wealth and with it educational attainment. The challenge is to help those lower down the scale but it is hard. For example, in my school which is predominantly non-white, getting kids to read is really really hard. How can the majority access GCSE exams with a reading age of 16 when we have reading ages of around 13 or 14?
Education system is just full of lazy government commie teachers earning way above the value they bring. Just a load of bouncers, the lot of them. Should be put on commission, bet the education quality would rocket then wouldn’t it. Lazy bleeding pissers.
Race has no role in the equation. Maybe wealth and effort do, but not race.
