Words matter. I think Robinson meant to say Superintendent Wardynski has done more TO African American students than previous superintendents.
What has Wardynski done TO African American students you ask? Let me count the things.
Let's start with requiring African American students wear uniforms so school administrators would be able distinguish them from gang members.
Let's move on spying on African American students and expelling them for things posted on social media. Then there is the documented fact African American students are suspended and expelled more than white students.
Oh, and I can't forget closing the Alternative School and giving poor/black and brown students the option of expulsion, a private "Therapeutic" facility .
How about trained certified teachers being replaced with Teach for America teachers in predominately African American schools, and replacing text books with laptops and IPads without ensuring African American students had access to the Internet?
Last but not least, closing, illegally renaming, and locating schools less than half a mile from an active rock quarry, to remove them from the list of failing schools.
I would say Casey Wardynski has done more TO African American students than FOR African American students.
What say you?
