California will no longer require eighth-graders to take algebra — a move that is line with the Common Core standards being adopted by most states, but that may leave students unprepared for college.
Last month, California formally shifted to the Common Core mathematics standards, which recommend that students delay taking algebra if they aren’t ready for it. Previously, algebra class was a requirement for all eighth-graders in the state.
The Common Core State Standards Initiative, which is sponsored by the National Governor’s Association, is an effort to unify diverse state education curricula. Forty-five other states and the District of Columbia have signed on so far.
But some education experts worry that the change will further damage struggling students’ college chances, since early proficiency in Algebra I is an excellent predictor of college graduation, according to the Mercury News.
Black and Latino students in California are significantly more likely to fail eighth-grade algebra, and 80 percent of those who fail it once will fail it again when they take it in high school.
A study published by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area claims that some minority students who score well enough to place into advanced math classes are often mistakenly held back.
“School districts have been disproportionately requiring minority students to repeat Algebra I even after they scored proficient or advanced on the Algebra I California standardized tests,” said Kimberly Thomas Rapp, executive director of the committee, in an interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The new standard is a step back for California, and may leave students, particularly minority and low-income students, unprepared for college, said Rapp.

Stop Lying About Us!
So, are you happy now, left wing extremists and fellow journalists, now that Lars Hedegaard was very close to being killed? You who have done everything you could, seeking with your lies to smear Dispatch International as a racist and Muslim-hating newspaper, rather than telling the truth – that we are critical of the totalitarian ideology of Islam. Are you aware that it is due to your support of the ever stronger demands for the Islamization of the West that these killers can operate freely in our society?
Last Tuesday I got the worst shock of my life. My fellow editor-in-chief Lars Hedegaard called me and said that to his regret he would not be able to come to the editorial office in Malmö, for he had just been the target of an assassination attempt.
None of us are stupid. We know quite well that what we are doing is dangerous – the worst thing one can do in Sweden of 2013 is to criticize Islam and the reckless immigration policy conducted by the current Reinfeldt cabinet. But we are fighting to remain able to live in an open and democratic society with 100 percent free expression.
If we were to capitulate to the forces of darkness that seek to draw the Western world down into the midnight of totalitarianism, it would be the end. NOW is the time when we must do things to defend our way of life.
We at Dispatch International will be forced to be even more careful and worried for our security. But we will never, never, never give up and concede victory to the forces of totalitarianism. They would have to kill us, one by one.
I hereby encourage all my journalist colleagues to stand up for the free word and for the right of our newspapers to write the articles they deem necessary for their readers. Stop calling us “Muslim-haters” – we are not the ones who hate or who seek to shoot and kill those of differing opinions. We are critical of the totalitarian ideology of Islam, which today constitutes a threat to the free world, a threat of a magnitude equal to those earlier posed by National Socialism, Communism and Fascism.
Stop lying to your readers, listeners and viewers. Tell them that we are standing for democracy and freedom, which you ceased to do long ago.

The Real Problem With Obama’s Drone Memo
The U.S. has dropped the clarity of the rules of war for the vague balancing tests that govern cops on the beat.
President Obama’s antiterrorism policies are drawing new fire after this week’s leak of the administration’s legal memo defending the targeted killing of Americans. According to the Justice Department white paper obtained by NBC News, the U.S. can kill a citizen who is “continually planning attacks” for al Qaeda when an “informed, high-ranking” official decides that the target “poses an imminent threat” and capture is “infeasible.”
Members of certain congressional committees will learn more about the policy after the White House announcement on Wednesday—in a move to stave off trouble on Capitol Hill—to let them see long-sought secret memos on the legal justification for targeted killings. From the leaked white paper, though, we get the drift: Americans may have constitutional rights, but the realities of war and the right to national self-defense trump individual rights when the executive branch is picking targets.

‘Democracy continues to be seen nowhere in “the State of Palestine” – whilst Israel’s choice for next prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu – is engaged in the usual machinations involved in putting a coalition together to govern Israel for the next four years.
Such political comings and goings are being eagerly followed by a free press commenting with gay abandon on every twist and turn in the daily developments – as their avid readership devours the opinions of dozens of different commentators in newspapers and on radio, television and the internet with very different political viewpoints.
The 2003 Bush Roadmap For Peace – supposedly still the basis on which the long-stalled negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority (defunct since 3 January 2013) were being conducted – was uncompromising in its final destination:
“A two state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will only be achieved through an end to violence and terrorism, when the Palestinian people have a leadership acting decisively against terror and willing and able to build a practicing democracy based on tolerance and liberty, and through Israel’s readiness to do what is necessary for a democratic Palestinian state to be established, and a clear, unambiguous acceptance by both parties of the goal of a negotiated settlement as described below.”
Any attempt by the “Palestinian people” to have any say in electing a leadership that will act decisively against terror and ending violence and terrorism has been silenced since 25 January 2006 – when their votes elected Hamas as winner of the elections with 74 seats to Fatah’s 45 – providing Hamas with the majority of the 132 available seats and the ability to form a majority government of its own.
The people chose the wrong horse if they expected violence and terrorism would end – but then they have to live with their choice until they get another chance to change their minds.
That is surely the essence of democracy – that there is an “out” – the ability of the people to regularly express their confidence or otherwise in the people they have elected.
However the people have not been given this opportunity since 2006.
