[video] Teachers separate students by sex and race to help boost test scores

CNN’s headline on this is very misleading. Watch the first few minutes you will see that these teachers are well intentioned and are becoming mentors to these black students whose grades were behind their white counterparts. Anybody who is thinking this is similar to going back to the days of segregation by law needs to jump off a cliff.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 


# Students divide themselves, join with mentors, for six minutes each day
# The pilot program involves only the junior class at McCaskey East High School
# Civil rights group is worried about the return of segregated schools
