Ivy League Professor Blasts ‘Racist’ Low Expectations of Black Kids in Education — ‘They Patronize Us, Presume We Can’t Perform’

Glenn Loury, a Brown University economics professor and host of the video blog The Glenn Show, criticized the need for affirmative action policies in education during the current era. Speaking at Malibu’s Pepperdine University School of Public Policy earlier this month, he explained black students do poorly on tests when they “don’t know the material” and not due to biases against them, urging educators to develop potential instead of lowering standards.

A Minnesota school choice movement founded in the black community aims to challenge the “woke” culture narrative that America is a systemically racist nation “structured to undermine the lives of black Americans.”
