I'm glad he's taking action and not letting the current dysfunctional regime continue assigning useless math books.

Taking the word of the mayor's spokesman is some real crack reporting there, guys. Why don't you actually talk to some of the people in Southeast Seattle (Google it. you'll figure out where it is) and ask them what THEY think, instead of just asking the guy who's paid to tell you all is well.

Has McGinn actually done any governing yet?

So McGinn needed to conduct a town hall to find out that jobs are scarce and that poor black kids don't do well in school?

What a motherfucking moron.

“along with disparities in academic performance based on income level, race, and neighborhood.”

Wow, I guess parent (s) have no influence on these disparities.

"29 percent of African American students are meeting math standards for their grade, as opposed to 78 percent of white students. "

What % of white kids come from married families with involved parents? Last time I lived in the CD I see the little 10 year old fuckers running around on the streets at 2am.

"29 percent of African American students are meeting math standards for their grade, as opposed to 78 percent of white students.

Seems to me the conclusion is black people SHOULD try and act more white.

Are the needs of homeless youth, especially queer homeless youth, being discussed in these town halls?
