This document produced by Bristol City Council is full of little gems, like one of the external contributors being a Paulette Wisdom from "Visions of Esteem" (which is a title enough to make a bit of sick come into my mouth) and:
All educators responsible for educating black and minority ethnic boys (BME boys) need to be giving training on how to deal with different cultural expectations of behaviour in learning environments.
Why should there be any differences in expectations of behaviour in learning environments? When you're at school, you shut the fuck up and let the teacher do the teaching.
In order to change the educational outcomes of BME pupils, the 95.6% of White educators must engage in effective continuing professional development (CPD) so that the needs of BME pupils are adequately met in the classrooms
What might these needs be? How could educational needs of one race be different to another? We all need to learn.
The refocus of the role of the Ethnic Minority Achievement Team (EMAT) is to strength capacity of all schools in good practice for assessments and language development of BME pupils.
Why is it only the City Council that has these fucking pointless politically correct non-jobs? I dread to think how much the Ethnic Minority Achievement Team has cost the taxpayer, and to what end? If someone wants to learn at school, they will. If they don't, they won't, and no amount of nannying and interfering will change that. This whole thing smacks of creating jobs on the back of certain groups of schoolkids not doing very well, with no real benefit. Typical fucking LEA bullshit.
