[ - ] Here's the thing about the SA video: experience proves that poor black kids do best in an orderly, high discipline environment. This is why the uniforms, rules, time out chair, use of Mr/Mrs, rote memorization, etc are employed. Children of other races do better in a creatively oriented, progressive environment. This is why Ethical/Fieldston is so popular for UWS white kids, and why SA works well for Bronx kids. Different folks, different strokes. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The sa method would work best for everybody. Some smart kids might do equally well in other environments. [ Reply | More ]

Black kids do better with a very disciplinarian model. That much is true. But so do the other races. But black kids benefit the most from it. [ Reply | More ]

You are being divisive and ugly. If your theory is that kids from chaotic households do better with discipline, that is something you might have a leg to stand on. But not all black kids are from chaotic households. All people from the Bronx aren't from chaotic households. You're conflating black with poor or undisciplined or chaotic. Poor white kids would benefit just as much. But from that video, all that child did was get flustered and get an answer wrong. There's also no evidence that that particular child was poor or from a chaotic home. You are making assumptions about her based on the fact that she's black. If that were a white child in the video you would not make those same assumptions. Especially if it were at SA Union Square or UWS. And FYI, not all poor homes are chaotic. They're just poor.
