Brilliance of Demanding Black Excellence In Our Classrooms

Quantitative Information – Involves a measurable quantity—numbers are used. Some examples are length, mass, temperature, and time. Quantitative information is often called data, but can also be things other than numbers. ... Gender, country name, animal species, and emotional state are examples of qualitative information.

"Not enough of our society is trained how to understand and interpret quantitative information. This activity is a centerpiece of science literacy to which we should all strive -- the future health, wealth, and security of our democracy depend on it. Until that is achieved, we are at risk of making under-informed decisions that affect ourselves, our communities, our country, and even the world."

Neil deGrasse Tyson

In order for our black communities to be able to fully compete in future generations anything other then demanding educational excellence from our children is unacceptable. We cannot advance, nor flourish if we continue to accept mediocrity in the classroom performance of our children. We have allowed far too many recent past generations of black learners to fall by the wide side and be push through rather than lifting them up to be consummate learners. The problems facing our communities in the future cannot and will not be solved unless we have the mindset of excellence and performance in the classrooms by our young learners. So it demand nothing less than total commitment of those responsible for teaching our children today and tomorrow.
