Thank goodness for the House (part 2)

House Republicans may scuttle state's cultural competency efforts
A quiet effort by state officials to require that all newly certified Oregon teachers be "culturally competent" looks to be dead-on-arrival in the Republican-controlled House, despite firm support from education advocates...
...[cultural competency] can mean not assigning homework that requires a computer to a homeless student, or understanding that in some Hispanic cultures, it's considered rude to look an authority figure in the eye. The idea is that understanding a student's background will eventually help them to perform better in class and on tests.

Do we live in a Hispanic culture? Should we teach kids that you can walk into a job interview and not look the boss in the eye? In "some Hispanic cultures" having sex with 12 year olds is ok. In some cultures female genital mutilation is ok. The Fishwrapper had an editorial blasting that "cultural tradition" just the other day. How come we don't respect other people's cultures when it comes to stuff like that?
Why don't we tell teachers to just teach the kids. Don't look at their "socio-economic status" or their "culture," just teach the American kids how to read, write, do math, and be Americans.

Your blog contained issues relating to identity theft insurance which I found quite absorbing. I would argue that identity theft insurance matters are best left to the professionals in most cases.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

Hey guy, I can see you lack culture, values and education, I can see you don't like hispanics and you sound like a KKK servant, I don't mean to insult you but I don't know what bad experiences you may had encountered in your past, but as well as you have rednecks with no class and first class criminals , hispanics have the same, that does not make us all ignorant peasants as you may all white caucasians are not equal as well, right? in regards of having sex with 12 y.o. been a part of our cultural values, don't be insane, how can you even mention that monstruosity??? Mat

Matthew said...

I forgot to mention, looking in the eye ! usually peasants or very ignorant or deshonest people don't look at you in the eye, but also people who fear, but don't be an idiot, can't you see, is not a cultural thing, is a personal behaviours, stupid ! but of course if you want to hate someone go ahead hate us, hate is good for those who fear, is a survivor's instinct, but don't neglect that Mexicans own most of the USA and lost it when you stole it from them in the past, also the Indians were the real owners of these lands, and your ansestors killed them, rape their women, and took their land so you can enjoy it, while hate the poor imigrants who are not your problem, is true many are criminals, but doesn't make them all criminals, you claim you believe in Jesus? (then do what Jesus would have done, do not pass judgment on those who are in need and hunger, but help them and love them... " the way you measure their sins,and faults, it will be multiply onto your sins and faults, when you die")
