Obama sues FOR "separate but equal"

Not in Obama's world
 Los Angeles Unified  settled a complaint by Obama's Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights, which contended that the district had failed to provide adequate services to students learning English.
America is already in danger of being separated into sub-sections by the lack of the one necessary element for a unified society – a common language. Now the Los Angeles Unified School District has decided to take a further step backward by segregating classes by the level of English that students speak. In other words, those who speak fluent English will be grouped together, while those who struggle will be grouped together. The change was apparently made due to a complaint from the federal Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, which charged the district with failing to provide adequate services to English-learning students, the L.A. Times said. Some experts reportedly argue that teachers can better focus instruction with students of similar English proficiency. They also claim that it’s easier to teach proper – or “academic” English – in segregated classes. See more here
