Well the Oregon law is not got to apply to many as the state is only 2% black. Even in Portland, which is suppose to be 5% black, you can walk around the streets down for hours without seeing a single black person.
The Mexicans are now about 15% of the state population. Mostly ag / service workers. Mostly indio / mestizo. And their kids do about as well in school as back in Mexico. Not very well. Saying that, they are not stupid. Far from it. Its just that people from poor peasant backgrounds put low priority on education. Not much gain from it back in Mexico. Mostly due to deeply rooted blanco / light skinned mestizo institutional racism in Mexico.
As for public education in California. Its been a sick joke in big city Unified School Districts for generations. The LA, SF and other big city systems collapsed decades ago. Every big city parent who can afford it sends their kids to private school. Thats been true since the 1980’s. And big city public school teachers are some of the most profoundly stupid people you will run into in a government job. The suburban school systems are not quite so bad but most are now very low quality. Due to being handed over to the teachers unions in the 1970’s.
The simple fact is asian kids do really well, white kids OK, the Mexican kids so so, and the black kids are uneducatable. A very recent phenomenon. Only really started in the 1960’s. Got nothing to do with family poverty. Asians kids from the poorest families do far better than black kids from top 10% income levels. Mostly cultural. Because immigrant African and Afro Caribbean kids (not refugees) do very well in school.
I’ve known and worked with some very competent and skilled blacks over the years. In small companies. But in government jobs and big companies pretty much the only blacks you will run into are “quota people”. People only hired because of their skin color and no other reason. You learn to avoid these people if you need anything done.
If you want an idea of just how profoundly stupid public school teachers are. The high school science curriculum for the SF school district states that no student racial group can have a better group outcome in tests than the worst group (blacks). Blacks are 5% of the city population, 40% of them live in public housing, 50% on welfare, have very high truancy rates etc.
In case you think this demographic profile has anything to do with “racism” its got to do with the fact that in the last 50 years most of the black families who were not on welfare moved out of the city leaving mostly the welfare / public housing people behind. The black population dropped from almost 20% to less than 5% . So very hard working asians kids are supposed to do no better than kids from single parent homes, on welfare, and who dont give a f*ck about anything…
The asians parents have already started flexing their political muscle. The recent recall was successful. One big push and the overwhelming white (and childless) political activists who have controlled the school board since the 1970’s will be forced out for good.
Next they need to break the teachers union. Who are toxic and totally corrupt. I thought it was funny that the subject of the 1980’s Feel Good movie “Lean on Me”, about a high school principal who turned around a failing LA school, was forced out of teaching soon afterwards by the school teachers union rep who later went on to be one of the most senior teachers union official in SoCal. The headmaster was black. The union guy was white with strong “progressive” political opinions. And nothing has changed since then.
And finally fire the three quarters of the school distinct employees who have nothing to do with teaching. In private schools 90% plus of the employees are teachers. In public schools its less than 30%. And more than a quarter of those are substitute teachers most years. Not many public school employees actually teach.
