    The 14 wouldn't be enough if Frederick were a Missouri fan.

    You could come up with problems based on time and distance for segments of the Underground Railroad, or how long a freed slave would need to work and save to buy back his own children.

    Of course, then you'd have some parents screaming about an agenda.

    An update: The questions were not vetted. NAACP wants heads to roll.

    This incident shows even multicultural staffs can show cultural “ignorance” said Jane Elliott, a consultant who developed a program on cultural competency. The experiences of people vary by region and country on how they see race, she said.

    I predict a consultant, probably the one named above, will receive a fee in the six-figure range for conducting a three-day sensitivity workshop. The district could tell its teachers not to do such stupid stuff and leave it at that, but the workshop sounds more educational-administration-ish.

    If Martin Luther King banged fifteen women in five different hotels, what is the average number of women per hotel?

    If the district does so, it'll be to show due dilligence in the event that a lawsuit is filed. If it saves them more than six figures, it'll be worth it.
