Thank you for pointing out the Justice Center is a liberal organization. Otherwise I would not have known. And it does make a difference.
To left-wing zealots, as the Justice Center appears, aren't interested in actually educating kids. They are interested in their agenda. No matter what they CLAIM, their agenda comes first, and if there's room for anything else they may care. But ALWAYS, always, always, for liberal zealots, agenda takes priority over everything.
Doubt me? Consider their blatherings about teacher pay.
Consider their support for Hildabeast regardless of how she denigrated her opponents supporters, how many laws she broke, the fact that Bill met with justice dept people to insure his law-breaking wife would be cleared, and the fact that the primaries were all fixed for Hildabeast to win. Not a single alt-left zealot has yet to call demoncrats, Clintons, or the demon party on the carpet for all the questionable and/or illegal activity.
When it comes to kids, left-wing zealots always support teachers unions first, and almost never bring up the quality of education provided. Left wing zealots are more interested in spending more money on education than they are in improving education.
And when it comes to statistics about suspensions or other activity in schools, the establishment answer isn't to fix anything, but to change the way statistics are gathered. Instead of suspending kids, they simply talk to the offender, and then ignore the problem. This allows the statistics to look better. Good numbers but no improvement in school discipline.
Again, no care about how it impacts the kids or the education process, so long as the numbers look good.
