The White Male Fail Equation

What teachers like to ignore, is that just how well children do at school depends not on the school, but on the capacity of the parents to nurture and educate their children.

In their usual topsy-turvy fashion, researchers have combined racial profiling with supposed school functions and hinted at the uplifting effects of multiculturalism.

The more prosaically obvious has slipped by them; that ethnic groups who still retain family structure and values, have children who cope more successfully with life, whether this be school, marriage or jobs.

What teachers like to ignore, is that just how well children do at school depends not on the school, but on the capacity of the parents to nurture and educate their children.

Two parents have the logistic capacity and conjoint motivation to do this, whereas sole parents very often do not. Motivation and morale are of key importance and even duo parents who have a limited grasp of English, will take steps to ensure their children are not linguistically handicapped; hence the almost trademark beautiful English of migrant children.

Conversely, with more than half of white families destroyed by free-trade and investment dominated government policies; and family values undermined by a collaborating English-speaking media, it is hardly surprising that their children will under-perform in every realm except anger and despair.

Add to this equation the destructively partisan impact of feminism on education, and the only surprise is that more boys do not fail. However, as the second generation of migrants becomes culturally susceptible, these too, will commence the downhill slide into mediocrity and negativity.

Only one action can rescue this situation and that is the restoration of democracy. This will mean that the influence of shrill lobbyists will be relegated to only a fair share of influence, and the community will once again discover its equilibrium.

A fully balanced and informed community, dominating government policy, will be able to allocate resources based on the axiom of equal rights and equal opportunity. But this cannot happen in a society riven by class divisions or affirmative action. /tr/af/
