Michigan Muslim-Black Problem in Education
According to Pew Dec. 13, 2016, "Muslim adults have an average of 5.6 years of schooling." Most Muslims in America are immigrants or 1st generation Americans.
As John Daniel, former UNESCO Assistant Director General for Education alarmingly warns:
"the Arab region has some of the world's lowest adult literacy rates, with only 62.2% of the region's population of 15 and over able to read and write in 2000-2004, well below the world average of [84%] and the developing countries' average of 76.4%."
What experts refuse to consider is Arab/Muslim culture. Being functionally literate living in America runs counter to Arab culture - accepting Western culture that schools are determined not to teach and jettisoning many facets Arab/Muslim culture, starting with the treatment of women and religious tolerance.
Islam like any fundamentalist' religion is more than just Allah, Islam must control all aspects of culture and life. Stop making Islam the center of everything.
The problem is not "poverty and inequality" it is Arab/Muslim culture. Western culture is not compatible with Islamic culture.
The Dearborn City School District has 20,417 students. The district’s minority enrollment is 10% (wrong the student body is Arab-Muslim, not white even if counted as white in the census). Also, 47.6% of students are economically disadvantaged, a common problem with illiterate Third World immigrants.
Students on free or reduced price lunch 47.6% (most are on welfare of some type) "About 76 percent of Dearborn Public School students are low-income." See above.
Students learning English (average) 49.8%, in other words can't speak proper English or not at all.
Test Scores at Dearborn City School District
"In Dearborn City School District, 49% of elementary students tested at or above the proficient level for reading, and 44% tested at or above that level for math. Also, 50% of middle school students tested at or above the proficient level for reading, and 43% tested at or above that level for math. And 51% of high school students tested at or above the proficient level for reading, and 46% tested at or above that level for math."
In other words a 50% failure rate even at low Michigan standards.
High school college readiness 17.7% (The real literacy rate.) How can this be if Dearborn students are testing at 40-50%?
High school graduation rate 79.2% (Fraud based on readiness rate.)
How does one have test scores averaging in the 40s but a 79.2% graduation rate? Education fraud.
These failing schools cost taxpayers $261 million annually, but only ~$160 million goes to actual education.
The rest goes to "support services."
Examples of school services include school adjustment and guidance counselors, school psychologists, social workers supporting family needs, special education supports, and behavior specialists.
In other words useless white-collar professionals shuffling paper. In others words 39% of the budget doesn't go to education.
Ref. www.usnews.com 2023
Dearborn crime rate is 3.35 per 1,000 far below the state average of 4.95 (median 4)
Compare to nearby Detroit at 23.07 violent crimes per 1,000.
Detroit is more like Africa than America with high rates of violence and low academic achievement.
Michigan is terrible overall, Detroit of another horror story. To quote The Detroit Free Press April 10, 2018 even before Covid:
Not proficient means that the student lacks the skill or competency necessary for success at an ENTRY level in the work place.
Proficient - Having or marked by an advanced degree of competence, as in an art, vocation, profession, or branch of learning. American Heritage. Highly competent; skilled; adept.
One is either proficient or not proficient.
In fourth-grade math, 4% of Detroit students scored at or above proficient, compared with 36% statewide, 31% in large cities and 40% nationwide for public school students.
In fourth-grade reading, 5% of Detroit students scored at or above proficient, compared with 32% statewide, 28% in large cities and 35% nationwide for public school students.
In eighth-grade math, 5% of Detroit students scored at or above proficient, compared with 31% statewide, 27% in large cities and 33% nationwide for public school students.
In eighth-grade reading, 7% of Detroit students scored at or above proficient, compared with 34% statewide, 27% in large cities and 35% nationwide for public school students.
As schools become more "diverse" (non-white) scores will continue to decline.
How can it be this bad? Pulling up the FY2021 Detroit school budget shows $1.28 billion nearly all of it state and Federal. Yet only ~$477 million went for instruction ($84 million was Covid funding), ~$800 for services and administrative costs. ~63% of the budget goes for non-instruction costs. This includes "one time" bonus payments to employees totaling $150.8 million.
In FY 2020 they only spent $400 million on actual instruction. The proposed FY 2022 has $708 million for salaries and benefits.
This pattern is repeated across the nation. Thank you teachers unions. Let us pass a law that requires 90% of all school budgets go for instruction. Give schools 5 years to bring proficiency rate up to 75% or strip them of Federal funding.
