Days after a violent outburst in a public school, the news finally covered a tragic story of what has happened to North Carolina Schools. After many years of Democrat domination there, started by the Democrat administration of Obama, activists have pushed for school policies that demand zero discipline for any Black students or violent offenders, leaving children and school employees sitting ducks’ for violence. Some School Board members even demand that law enforcement is not allowed to protect anyone.
“Far left radical Judy Justice, for example, a member of the school board made statements that they do not want SRO, (School Resurce Officers) in schools because they would frighten students. But we aren’t there to enforce laws, as she knows, we are there to protect the students,” one Handover County law enforcement member told me when I asked about the arrest of a 15-year-old, for attempted murder, in a New Hanover School this week.
Board Member Judy Justice requested to pull the MOU for School Resource Officers for further discussion. #nhcschat

Key Point: Eric Holder under Barack Obama reconstructed school discipline for minority students, and now years later, the consequences are obvious, and the consequences are exactly as predicted. Leftist school board members carry on his policies.
Everything Democrats touch- they destroy. Here is proof:
On Monday 15yr old Chance Deablo was taken into custody. He is facing numerous charges, including Attempted 1st-degree murder; Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury Sheriff believes the victim’s injuries are not life-threatening.

The News and Observer covered the story and reported:
On Monday morning, a 15-year-old boy was arrested and charged with attempted murder, accused of shooting a student at New Hanover High School in Wilmington.
About 3:10 p.m., the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office announced the arrest in a tweet. Police said Chance Deablo, 15, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill or inflict serious injury, possession of a weapon on school grounds, and discharging a weapon on school grounds, according to the tweet.
One student was injured in the shooting and taken to the hospital. The shooting took place about 11:30 a.m. Monday, J.J. Brewer, spokesperson for the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, said over the phone.
HOW DID WE GET HERE? CAN YOU FIND THE PATTERN?
Consider this 2014 article in investors.com:
Holder’s Anti-Discipline Push May Threaten Students
Despite growing classroom violence, the Obama administration is strongly advising schools to relax classroom discipline, arguing “zero tolerance” policies discriminate vs. minority students.
Attorney General Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan Wednesday issued “recommendations” urging schools to find ways to avoid suspending or expelling students who act out. They also suggested administrators think twice about involving police in campus altercations.
The two Cabinet members argued that suspensions deny minority students time in the classroom, causing them to learn less, drop out of school and end up in prison. They say “harsh” disciplinary codes are feeding a “school-to-prison pipeline.”
Critics fear the policy will backfire by increasing classroom disruptions, making it harder for minorities to learn. Given increasing student threats against teachers in urban schools, they say it could also make it more difficult for districts to retain good educators who are dedicated to closing the academic achievement gap.
“Secretary Duncan focuses only upon the fact that, as a group, African-American students are suspended and expelled more often than other students,” U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member Gail Heriot told IBD. “By failing to consider the other side of the coin — that African-American students may be disproportionately victimized by disorderly classrooms — this policy could easily end up doing more harm than good to the very group he is attempting to help.”
The danger, she and others say, is that schools will sacrifice safety to get their numbers right with the government. That sounds a lot like quotas, which are illegal.
The administration has sent lengthy letters to schools formally outlining the new federal policy. While nonbinding, the guidelines come with a veiled warning. If ignored, schools could face prosecution or denial of federal funding or both.
The Justice Department has already sued school districts in Florida, South Carolina, and Mississippi for implementing allegedly racist disciplinary policies.
The Education Department is actively investigating more than 20 schools and districts, including Seattle Public Schools, for the same thing. In addition, agency investigators are following up on more than 1,250 complaints filed by minority students and parents, and civil rights groups.
DO YOU KNOW YOUR lOCAL SCHOOL BOARD MEMBERS?
Frequently people don’t really know the people on their local school board, and for years voters have ignored these important races. Hopefully, voters will begin to realize how important it is to investigate the background of the people on these boards.
