A growing number of Americans believe that the US government school system has declared war on white, male students. In fact, many believe that young boys are treated more harshly than teachers who sexually exploit children.
While Americans are constantly told about "zero tolerance" for misbehavior in public schools, they are witnessing zero tolerance exclusively for youngsters who happen to be white males, according to critics of public education.
For example, according to a story in NewswithViews.com, 11-year old Matt Porter was singled out for ridicule during an awards ceremony at the Decatur Intermediate Learning Center in Pennsylvania. The sixth-grader received "Most Likely Not To Have Children" and "Sir Clowns-a-Lot" awards from two teachers at his school.
"Words cut deeper than any knife could. They hurt," Porter's stepfather, Joseph Sims, told a reporter from WCAU news in Philadelphia.
"When you hurt a child like that, you not only hurt him mentally, but it does hurt physically because you withdraw within yourself. That is what Matthew has done," said Mr. Sims.
"Matt was humiliated by teachers who would never dare give such certificates to black or Hispanic children, or to female students," said conservative activist Mike Baker.
"If black kids were given such certificates, you better believe heads would roll in that school district," said Baker.
According to Men's Rights commentator Glenn Sacks, "(School accuses 5-year-old of sex harassment" Herald-Mail, 12/20/06), over the past year, 28 Maryland kindergarten students have been suspended for alleged 'sex offenses,' including 15 for 'sexual harassment.'"
Sacks points out that all of the students disciplined were white males.
"While government schools are protected from criticism and retribution for the transgressions of teachers and administrators, school children are singled out for ridicule and harassment," said former NYPD detective Sidney Francis.
"This is all part and parcel of the current trend of demoralizing American men -- especially white men. What the political-correctness police are doing is beginning their attack with young white males while they're still in grade school," added Det. Francis.
Mike Baker is more blunt in his criticism of government schools. "For years public school administrators have worked to achieve their political ambitions including communism and one-world government. They believe in order to achieve their goals they must single out and destroy America's white males, especially the white males who'll become the leaders, soldiers and police officers of tomorrow," he said.
"And so they start their liberal agenda with white boys as young as 5-years old."
