Stay the course!

Kevin Drum of the Washington Monthly responds to the Education Department finally allowing single sex public schools:

It turns out, though, that my real fear is just the opposite: ... What if [single sex schooling] works? Does that mean we just give up on the whole idea of figuring out how to make co-ed education work? I can't be the only one who thinks that would be a bad idea, can I?

There are all sorts of problems of race, gender, class, religion, and so forth that can seemingly be ameliorated by simple segregation. But that just caves in to the problem, essentially declaring it unsolvable, rather than acknowledging it and continuing to search for solutions. I have a hard time believing that this does anybody any good in the long term.

In other words, Stay the course!

Social policy should never bow down to reality. If other people's lives have to be damaged for decade after decade so we can feel morally superior, so be it. It's a small price to pay for white liberal self-esteem.

For example, although black inmates are routinely raping white inmates in high security prisons, which causes whites to form racist prison gangs for self-defense, well, as the Supreme Court proclaimed in early 2005 before its recent upgrading with non-senile Justices, we still can't allow any compromise with the sacred cause of prison integration just because of little side effects like AIDS, the Aryan Brotherhood, and black vs. Mexican jail riots.
