Baltimore City Continues to Suffer from Shrinkage

40 posts in this topic

PG & Montgomery Co are full. The govt worker sprawl has branched out. Frederick is getting the same way. If you don't work directly for the govt you likely work for something tied to to.

Waldorf is 53% Black. I am not sure if you have been there lately, but it's become a thriving business epicenter. Houses are very nice as well.

Well that's good to hear. Really do.

 

But I live in Woodlawn where only 23% of the population is white...the remainder is minority (w/ 61% black) and this area is NOT up and coming. Most folks black and white are UP and leaving.

What is the percentage? What is a good number? How good are the schools? What is the breakdown of the schools according to race?

 

An interesting factoid that came out from the Sun's 4 part-er. Integration works really really well...as long as the percentage of blacks stays at or below 40%.

The School near John Hopkins that was set up by John Hopkins did very well for a time. Reason because of a decent balance.

But then.... the big mouths ...started complaining that there were not enough spaces for low income(black) students. SSSSSsoooooooo after much back and forth.... JH threw in the towel and opened up so many spaces for low income black kids that the white kids were squeezed out.

So now black kids make up around 93% of the student population. And guess what .... the school is failing miserably.

 

All the wonderful innovative things/programs the school had have been shxt canned because money had to be directed to taking care of the black population and all the inherent issues.

 

So guess who is complaining AGAIN. :rolleyes:

40% always seems to be the tipping point

Oh I am sure it is a wonderful place. But  looking at the map it is NOT in BC proper nor is it in PG county. Where the educational problems seem to be. And considering the proximity to DC they are not getting bunches of money to support the schools as are BC & PG.

Question; do you have any idea/information of how many section 8's live in that area or are on welfare? I don't but I bet my bottom dollar that is not many.

 

Just to be clear in case you didn't pick up on it. The 40% is in reference to black students NOT total population breakdown in a given area.

I hope as the resident  population shrinks, so too does the city employment population. Less city officials will save a lot of money.

Manny.....Waldorf maybe 53% black....that means that 47% are white.

In a perfect world that would be the balance of the schools population....which it is not as I pointed out...and why the school is failing.

 

Sorry apples and oranges.

Black and white are the only two racial categories?

Black people have gotten smarter. Until the schools are fixed(and I'm not talking about more money) , black flight will continue.

Down here, it was "White flight"... my little city of Laurel, MS... (not MD)... has lost around 3,000 residents every 10 years since segregation and the "Academies" came into being... all in the country... now the Laurel city school is 99+% Black... county schools much less...

I don't recall them even being mentioned.

If your curious go to the Sun archives and look it up.

Is that number accurate, have they really done studies showing that if you let blacks become more than 40% of the student population they will ruin the school?

Funny that liberals say diversity is a good thing unless it's "too much" diversity

Again...check the Sun archives for the 4 part article on schools. I was about 2 weeks ago.

In it they discussed the studies you are curious about. I think it was in the very first one.
