    NYC Progressive Mayor Deblasio isn't satisfied that NYC specialty High Schools: Bronx Science and Stuyvesant and others, rely on colorblind tests for admissions. No, sir! These tests are unfair because they under represent blacks and Hispanics. What? Math and science test are racist...:cuckoo: How?

    In any event, DeBlasio will kick 10% of deserving students to the curb in order to make these meritocracies "more diverse"

    How is this Progress?

    Several years age our city built a small high school specifically for advanced students, and admission was totally based on academic achievement. (grades)

    I know a young teen who was accepted into the school. She told me during her 4 years at the school, that she never saw a fight or any form of disruptive behavior. Because all the kids there had high educational goals in order to be awarded scholarships to top universities.

    Unfortunately, the city government eventually decided there wasn't enough diversity at the advanced student high school. And changed the admission criteria from grade based merit to admission based on race, and started bussing in kids from the hood.

    Now the schools once top tier state academic A+ rating has fell into the toilet, and is no better than any other public high school, where daily fights in the hallways and unruly behavior in the classroom is the norm.

    My granddaughter's middle school had an optional attendance 1/2 school day.

    She went and told me that she saw only white and asian students at the school that day, and not a single black kid showed up.

    She also said that not a single fight broke out that day. (usually there are several). And that for the first time she experienced what a normal school would be like.

    So you tell me? --- Race or lack of ambition?? .... :cool:

    i am more willing to say lack of any parental control.....i could never figure out why my friend has a 29 yr old living at home and disrespecting her....we were discussing high school for some reason...i mentioned my son never had an option....finish high school and go on with his education.....that push did cost a lot of money for the first two years of partying alas he did finish college ....she shocked me telling me her son has a g.e.d and she wonders why his job search isnt going well?

    they are white catholics...
