Leniency as prescribed by the Obama administration’s “Dear Colleague Letter”  greatly strengthens the school to prison pipeline, by reinforcing criminal behavior.
Instant reward for misbehavior, no punishment.
Violent and criminal minority children are treated very leniently, starting in Kindergarten. With impunity, “disadvantaged”, “traumatized” minority children reap the pleasures and benefits of misbehavior, and watch their peers do likewise. Blacks and other “minorities”1 benefit from special minority privilege2 and impunity. Years of intrinsic rewards for exciting pleasurable violent behavior reinforces and strengthens such anti-social and criminal behavior. It creates hardened adult criminals.
The root cause of false educational practices is dishonesty: Political correctness, egalitarianism, the gag orders3 that do not allow to report on minority crime and race differences.
Antisocials engage in criminal behavior because is rewarding. A pleasurable feeling of power, the pleasure of beating, of punishing, of humiliating, in addition to tangible benefits like getting lunch money or forced homework help by the victim.
