Default Bernie Sanders proposes U.S. education overhaul in appeal to black voters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders unveiled an education policy proposal on Saturday designed to pump billions of dollars into the public schools system, in a bid to appeal to black voters who shunned the U.S. senator during his previous presidential run.

The 10-point plan Sanders detailed in a speech in South Carolina aims to end racial disparities in the public education system. America’s education policy debate has long been steeped in discussions of race and racial discrimination.

Sanders struggled in the 2016 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination against Hillary Clinton to garner support among African-Americans. His chief Democratic rival in the run-up to the 2020 election, former Vice President Joe Biden, has polled well among black voters.

“Every child has a right to a quality K-12 education, regardless of your race, regardless of your income, and regardless of your zip code,” Sanders said in a statement on the proposal.

The Vermont senator built his 2016 campaign on a series of liberal policy ideas that at the time made him unique among Democrats, but which now are shared by many of his rivals. More than 20 Democrats are vying to challenge President Donald Trump, the likely Republican nominee.

Sanders has struggled to distinguish himself in the current field, frequently complaining that he deserves credit for pioneering many of the progressive ideas now espoused by other Democratic challengers.

Sanders titled his new education proposal the “Thurgood Marshall Plan for Education,” a nod to the Supreme Court justice who before being on the bench successfully argued the 1954 landmark Brown v. Board of Education case that desegregated public schools.

On Friday, the Sanders campaign previewed the portion of the proposal that would overhaul charter schools, the publicly-funded schools that operate independently of government oversight.

The remaining portion of his proposal covers everything from teacher pay to school lunches.

Sanders said he would push for funding to better integrate some schools. He also called for a federal funding minimum and moving away from using property taxes to pay for schools. Critics argue that using property taxes results in wealthy areas having better schools than more impoverished neighborhoods.

He wants to spend an additional $5 billion a year on summer school and after-school programs across the United States and also called for an increase in federal funding for programs for students with disabilities.

Teachers’ salaries should be set at a minimum of $60,000 a year, Sanders said, and tied to regional cost of living. Schools should be required to provide free meals, breakfast, lunch and snacks to all students, he said.

He added that he wants to provide another $5 billion to increase community services at schools, including health and dental care, mental health and job training.

For schools that continue to lack the infrastructure necessary to teach students, Sanders wants to provide federal funds for more school construction.

The senator also proposed making schools safer and more inclusive, including by passing gun control legislation and enacting laws to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer students.

Democrats make blacks promises every 4 years during the campaign.

Then they do nothing, and come back in 4 years and repeat the process ad nauseam.

You'll notice Democrats have been promising blacks the world and getting their votes for 50+ years, yet they have the highest poverty rates, the highest unemployment rates (though Trump has lowered that alot), etc.

Somehow it still fools about 95% them.

If they want action, they need to vote R at least one election cycle, and then tell Team D they will continue to vote R until those 50+ years of promises are kept.

But as long as they mindlessly pull that D lever and get zilch in return, nothing will change.

What will help black children the most in terms of getting a good education is to allow their parents school choice.

Yet Democrats fight tooth and nail against school choice.

Their loyalties lie with the Teachers Union (and its massive campaign chest) over the education of black children.

And as long as blacks let them do it, they'll keep doing it.

well you can't fix attitude, reluctance to learn and non-existent parenting in these urban schools with more cash. inviting more corruption and abuse by local politics. and also making schools all equally crappy by redistributing the wealth.

Charter and private schools can kick disruptive kids out, while public schools cannot (technically they can, but the process is so time consuming its de facto not available).

I was bussed into the ghetto, and you guys are 100% about the culture in those schools not being conducive to learning, and that you can throw all the money at those schools you want and things will not improve.
