No, because Black children are not White or Asian children. Black children are just as academically capable, smart, and competent as other children , but because they are Black, they are often times treated differently than other children, particularly in academic environments. Thus, whatever "academic handicaps" that Black students develop as result of past and present mistreatment is not "self-inflicted," but inflicted upon them by society. And this is what "racial identity education"...

As our public school increase their REsegregation they are more likely to sit next to other Black kids and increasingly be taught by Black teachers.

Do you think the vocher movement today has the intention to desegregate ??? If the U.S. models its educational system like Poland or Belgium, most likely American schools will be segregated, but the segregation probably will not matter, because poor performing schools will be shut down, and the students from the poor performing schools will be put into educatinally better schools.So the children from poor performing schools will not be left hanging.

How is this RELEVANT to what BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO DO to educate our children? If Whites are pulling their kids out of Black public schools and home schooling them IS THIS IN AND OF ITSELF GROUNDS FOR OPPOSING HOME SCHOOLING FOR BLACK KIDS? You are a FUNCTION of White Folks Nmaginate. You can't find yourself until the WHITE MAN makes his move.

Now there is no debating that. Anyone who tries to deny the fact that "school vouchers" have a racist past, and most likely a racist modern-day intent, have their heads buried in the ground. Of course, many White racists will deny it to the end, and their Black-faced, chicken-eating, greasy-grinnin', coon-shuffling lackies will follow them to the ends of the Earth and beyond.

This statement is incorrect. According to research studies, most students who apply (and are accepted) into teacher education programs are White females.

Not public education, quality education through the siphoning off of funds by private schools. Of course it is the logical chain of events. The issue includes transferring money from public, non-profit entities to private, for-profit entities. Private entities compete with other private entities and their incentive to be the best is profit . To that end they are empowered to make student admission decisions that public schools cannot make.
