Ted Horrell, principal at Germantown High School in Tennessee, issued an apology to parents and students for saying the school’s black students are “less smart,” according to a state report card issued this month, WREG reports. Ted Horrell had given out the results of the school’s state report card, which breaks down standardized test scores by race and income.

The assembly was meant to talk about how the school could close the achievement gap and introduced a new program to help struggling students. So being politically correct takes precedence over telling the truth. The test scores showed that the black students were doing worst than their peers. Was that a fact or was that an opinion? If it was factual, then how can it be called racist? We are allowing political correctness to cloud our better judgment. Of course, this was all about race and the parents are saying Ted Horrell shouldn’t air dirty laundry, particularly as it relates to black students.
