Baltimore’s public schools

During the  2010-2011 school year (the most recent year for which data is available) Baltimore’s public schools spent $17,329 per student.

What do students get for all that money that is being spent?

According to standardized tests, only 16% of eighth graders in Baltimore’s public schools are proficient or better at reading, and only 13% are proficient or better at math.

Jon Stewart thinks the solution is to spend more money.  He recently said:

“If we are spending a trillion dollars to rebuild Afghanistan’s schools, we can’t, you know, put a little taste Baltimore’s way. It’s crazy.”

Unfortunately, like all liberals who claim that public schools are underfunded, Stewart refuses to admit how much money they are actually spending. I doubt he looked up the number before he made his statement. But he did say what he said, so we know he thinks the current amount is not enough, even if he does not actually know what that amount is.

I wonder how much money would have to be spent for Jon Stewart (as well as all the other liberals who claim that public schools are underfunded) to think it was enough.

In Baltimore, 35% of public school teachers send their own children to private school. This proves that 65% of the public school teachers in Baltimore are idiots.

Woman has EPIC rant about Baltimore

Although I don’t agree with this woman’s use of profanity and racial slurs, I do agree with her general point, especially the part about blaming the parents for not properly raising their children.

How embarrassing for the political left – the Baltimore police officer charged with murdering Freddie Gray is black

The Washington Post has just reported that the Baltimore police officer charged with murdering Freddie Gray is black.

Why is the political left blaming Gray’s death on racism?

And if this black police officer gets convicted and ends up in jail, will the political left then complain about yet another black man being sent to prison?

Vietnam veteran stands up to Baltimore rioters, becomes hero of the night

Vietnam veteran stands up to Baltimore rioters, becomes hero of the night

While police stood by and watched the city of Baltimore succumb to looting and plundering, one lone Vietnam veteran stood in front of them, and in front of rioters, and took control of the situation like only a veteran can.

Robert Valentine, who initially identified himself as “just a soldier,” was caught by CNN cameras yelling at the rioters to go away. Shockingly, they listened.

CNN reporter Joe Johns asked Valentine if he was concerned for his own safety when he confronted the mob.

“I did 30 years, OK, came out a Master Sergeant. I’ve seen more than all this,” he said. “I’ve been through the riots already. This right here is not relevant. They need to have their butts at home. They need to be in their home units with their families studying and doing something with their life. Not out here protesting about something that is not really about nothing.

“They do not respect this young man’s death. You know. Now, mama and daddy lost a child. That could be them. So I’m very pissed.”

When asked why he did it when others would be afraid, Valentine gave the greatest answer.

“I love my country. I love my Charm City. I’m an American,” he said. “I’m not black, white, red, yellow or nothing. I am American.”

Too bad Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake doesn’t have the same leadership ability.
