Baltimore Mayor Offers Solution To "Out Of Control" Homicides - Free Community College For All

Tyler Durden's picture

Via StockBoardAsset.com,

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh announces her crime-fighting initiative last Wednesday, portion of which includes free community college. 

Her answer to a homicide rate that is doubled Chicago’s is free community college for Baltimore youth.

Here is what she had to say per WBALTV:

“Community college has become critical in providing the necessary education and training that high school graduates need to pursue a trade or a four-year degree,” Pugh said.

 

“What we are going to do in Baltimore City is make Baltimore Community College free.”

Earlier this week, ‘Project Baltimore’ asked this question: How can a high school with zero students proficient in math, have one of the highest graduation rates in Baltimore City? 

In a stunning interview from one of the masked educators who uncovered this possible great theft of education.. They said, “grade changing. Giving out diplomas to students that did not earn them.”

So, therein lies a major issue of efficiency in the city. An alleged corrupt school system in Baltimore is handing out high school diplomas like candy to students who have zero proficiency in math. Then the expectation is to push these students into free college in the name of stopping homicides. This does not pass the smell test.

Perhaps, the problem is much deeper and it starts with deindustrialization of the city and 50-years of democratic controlled leadership. This has forced a shocking facial wealth divide - 1/3 of black households have zero net worth.

Education Attainment for Black or African American is shocking

Conclusion:

Baltimore Mayor Pugh needs a lesson in timeframes. Her holistic approach of free college for Baltimore youth will not solve today’s homicide rate that is doubled Chicago’s. We’re sure Baltimore taxpayers will be thrilled.

Nothing brings down the murder rate like an Associate of Arts degree.

Free college for people who didn't bother showing up to high school.  Brilliant idea!

So folks who are barely literate go to college.   And do what?

Free college is not what is needed.    Free grade school is what is needed:  REMEDIAL reading, writing and arithmetic.

It is necessary to run before one can walk.

High school is free and no one attends it. So what do you think will happen with free college? Plus there are so many grants and scholorships already available for inner city blacks that college might as well be free.

The problems in the schools are in the lower grades where students who want to learn are mixed with students who are violent.

I think that is their plan, to get a huge amount of money shoveled at a program that all but a few token students would actually attend, and embezzle the money elsewhere. I have seen the general scam before somewhere.

Why stop there?  Free PhD Degree in Black Study.

How about the blacks take personal responsibility.

Or the USA does the right thing and repatriates the blacks back to Africa.

BeanusCountus's picture

Gave an upvote on the first sentence. It's right. Second one is not probable. The worst in America beats what is available in Africa. For anyone.

Your blacks have 5 more IQ points, so dangerous but still stupid. Keep them!

The movers and shakers behind the promotion of immigration almost always seem to include dual American-Israeli citizens that are vastly over-represented in the United States Congress and Senate, indeed official consensus figures state the Jews are only supposed to represent 2% of the American population, yet just look at what percentage of them are in American politics.

Again I refer you back to Article 2 and 3 of the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG)

The media have been found to consistently cover up interracial crime to such an extent that in 2013, Colin Flaherty published a book entitled, “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” which documents over 500 cases of black on white violence in America, along with details of how the national media choose to ignore reporting it.

We and blacks are equal partners in this failed experiment. I say we do our fair share helping them and drop them off half way across the Atlantic. It's the least we could do.

It is entirely about race and how dindus are not equipped for white civilization.

They have a hard enough time getting them to go mandatory high school.  And they think they will attend optional college?  

Zero proficency math skills with a college degree.  Degrading the value of a college degree much?

why are we stopping at free college? If free stuff solves all problems why not a free car, insurance, car insurance a home, food and internet, did i miss a freebie.

Free alcohol. Free weed.  Free bullets. Free childcare.  Free stickers for the kids.

They might be going in the right direction… butt….

How about subsidizing brothels and free hookers for all?

They already get that on welfare.  Why would they waste valuable time doing drug deals to go to college?

LyLo's picture

Dude, you ever been to a college?  Easy access to drug deals seems to be the primary reason for attendance.

And also, they get paid serious monies to go.  Go ahead and fill out FAFSA sometime for yourself.  Then fill it out for a single mother of 8 kids with no father living in her mom's living room.  Now, consider: every cent extra gets sent to you by cheque.  I'm very serious.  About half my class in community college bought a used car after their cheque cleared.

My sister in law spent it on meth and then she did better with the second one, but failed to get a degree. True success story.

Hey, everyone got a trophy.

The value of anything that is in great supply is generally pretty low, which is why having millions of kids graduating college every year is pretty much a waste of time and money for most of them. Throw in the new majors in womens studies, black studies, basketweaving, etc., and one can see why college has become a complete scam for most of the idiots that attain those degrees.

Me too and he escaped from Detroit!  That alone qualifies him in my opinion.

No way.   Almost all black qualifications these days are affirmative action quota filling.

The best solution for the citizens of Baltimore, who are not violent offenders, would be a city funded relocation package. Because it's hard to imagine that anyone would actually choose, by his/her own volition, to live in Baltimore.

rather its an attempt to get them off the streets.

Australia did this in the 1670's..unemployed 'teenage sons of single women' .. (read irish girls in aus sicko protestantism bias.. untrue. Irish girls were given a chance before the english poor white protestants stopped that) and the new middle class weathy thru gold mining were concerned about them on the streets. Hence schools  designed  by govt architect who also designed goals at the same time and compulsory schooling. School classroom still show the intent to control kids with teachers desk set to stop them escaping.

Teach them how to speak proper during a robbery so everybody understands them therefore they won't have to shoot anyone?

I'm sure all of the murderers will rush to enroll.

According to Social Justice Warriors blacks are killing other blacks because the white world treats them unfairly. 

And if youbelieve that crap, then free community college will seem like a really great solution.
