Distorted Education Priorities

In the two posts immediately below (here and here) I discussed civil rights in the schools, arguing that the Obama administration fundamentally misunderstands civil rights.

Because it didn’t fit the points I was making, I neglected to mention one of the most revealing, and most depressing, tidbits about the Dept. of Education mentioned in the Washington Post article I cited:

With about 600 employees and 12 field offices, the Office for Civil Rights is one of the largest units in the department. Its annual budget is $103 million.

Does anyone really believe that “one of the largest” problems of American education today is rampant, pervasive discrimination against minorities?

Say What?
