Your Tax Money Well Spent

Camden NJ: just 3 High School Students “College Ready” on SATs

Nearly $24,000 per year spent per student, $10,000 above national average





Camden NJ, right across the Delaware River from Philadelphia PA. Once a thriving city, it is now the blackest, poorest, most run down, gang infested, trashheap among any of the eastern states. The libraries have closed, the police department has nearly been laid off, the fire department likewise. It is a horrible cesspool long ago abandoned by the white people who built it. It has been an enclave of the Democratic Machine and all its corruptions for more than 80 years.

And this is the bottom line: More money per student is spent there than in nearly any other school system in the country, no matter how well off that community may be. And it makes no difference whatsoever. Because the populace has gone aboriginal, and couldn’t care less about schooling. WTF, the EBT gets renewed every month either way.

The new school superintendent in Camden, N.J., says it was a “kick-in-the-stomach moment” when he learned that only three district high school students who took the SAT in the 2011-12 school year scored as college-ready.

Paymon Rouhanifard on Tuesday told the school board and the community what he learned on a “listening tour” after he was named to the post in August.

He told the city’s Board of Education that low college readiness shows the district must do better.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/19cp4f3) the superintendent also says he also heard about safety problems in the district. He says one action he’s taking immediately is waiving the $75 background check fee for parents who want to volunteer in the schools.

In June, the state assumed control of the schools in the poverty-stricken city of 80,000.

There ya go: another GREAT solution: get in more parents to volunteer, but don’t bother vetting them. WTF, they’ll all fail it anyway.

“College Ready” according to the SAT folks, means scoring a 1550 or better on the modern SAT exam, which uses a 2400 point system these days. So this means taking the SAT, and scoring just less than what used to be called a failing grade (1550/2400 = 64.58%).

The SAT Benchmark was designed to measure the college readiness of groups of students. The SAT Benchmark score of 1550 is associated with a 65 percent probability of obtaining a first year GPA (FYGPA) of a B- or higher, which in turn is associated with a high likelihood of college success. Students meeting the benchmark score of 1550 were more likely to enroll in a four-year college, had higher first-year GPAs and were more likely to be retained for their second and third year than those students who did not attain the SAT benchmark.


Nice. So the BEST of the high school kids in Camden managed to just barely fail the SAT, or slightly better. And this is after you, me, and everyone else chipped in enough tax money to spend more than $15 per hour on each and every student in their school system.

Camden is no tiny town. The population is about 80,000 people. About 40 percent of the residents live below the poverty line. The FBI has ranked Camden first in the nation for violent crimes per capita in cities with over 50,000 residents.
...
The upbeat website of the Camden Education Association, the local teachers union, doesn’t appear to mention the disastrous failure of the union’s teachers to prepare students for college.

“The Camden Education Association shall continue to advocate for quality working conditions, economic benefits, political involvement, and professional growth for its membership in order to promote the best education for Camden City students,” the site perkily promises. (notice there isn’t a single word about providing any kind of education for the students, quality or otherwise!)
...
Figures provided by the Common Institute of New Jersey show that the Camden school district spends $23,770 per student each year. Across the United States, average spending per pupil is a little over $10,000, according to Governing.com.

Camden has 5 high schools, with at least 2,000 students in that age bracket.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
