NAACP gives then takes away support for Sessions as AG

tim-scott-south-carolinaThe NAACP gave Jeff Sessions an award in 2009.  In an about face, the NAACP opposed Jeff  Sessions for Attorney General.  Why the turn about?

Of note,  for many years the NAACP supports the teacher unions and is opposed to vouchers for black children.

Why would an organization  such as the NAACP — long known as as advocate for blacks — oppose education  choice for black parents?

Sessions was  recently confirmed by the Senate as attorney general.

Senator Lindsey Graham who spoke in Sessions behalf, showed  the award which the  NAACP gave Jeff Sessions in 2009.

The NAACP which  opposed Sessions for attorney general has opposed vouchers for black children.






Duh: Charter schools get no support by NAACP – Why? Unions over kids

Charter schools get no support by NAACP.  Why?  Because the NAACP supports the teacher unions and cares less about education choices available for young black children. Does that make sense? No.

Black families want Charter Schools 
Public schools whose teachers are unionized  fail to teach children.  Publicly funded charter schools – with  no unions – succeed in teaching children.
Only 39 percent of students in New York state schools who were tested recently scored at the “proficient” level in math.
 In contrast,  100 percent of the students at the Crown Heights Success Academy scored at that level in math.

Blacks and Hispanics are 90 percent of the students in the Crown Heights Success Academy — a charter school funded by taxpayers.

More than 43,000 families are on waiting lists to get their children into charter schools.    charter school waiting lists

Teachers unions are opposed to any alternative to public education and contribute to politicians who place obstacles and restrictions on the expansion of charter schools.

The NAACP, at its 2016 national convention in Cincinnati, voted to support “a moratorium on the proliferation of privately managed charter schools.”  Remember Martin Luther King’s dream?

It’s easy to understand why the NAACP is against any alternative to public schools. Many of its members work in public education.

However, many of those people do want alternatives for themselves.

In Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, 25 percent of public-school teachers send their children to private schools. In Philadelphia, 44 percent of teachers send their children to private schools. The percentages are similar in several other cities: Cincinnati, 41 percent, Chicago, 39 percent and Rochester, New York, 38 percent.

This demonstrates the dishonesty, hypocrisy and arrogance of the elite. They effectively say, “One thing for thee and another for me.”


Firenze Sage:  You cannot serve two masters  — the teacher’s unions and  the children.
