WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – A former history and African Studies professor at historically black Delaware State University blames President Obama for undermining the education of black students.

“When President Obama came into office it seemed as though the progressive, liberal Democrats [had] some type of concerted effort to accelerate the removal of African-Americans in these schools,” Dr. Jahi Issa told Campus Reform. “Now under President Obama we are starting to see the decline of African-Americans in traditionally white schools. It didn’t start with Obama but it did accelerate with Obama.”

At the same time, Issa credits President Reagan with doing more to help fund black teachers at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU).

“African-Americans need to know that it was the Republicans, it was conservatives, the father of contemporary conservatism, President Ronald Reagan, who signed for the protection of HBCUs,” Issa added.
