This is what happens when your school is “woke af” and trying to decide which students should be allowed into their honors programs. Grades? GPA? Future plans? PFFFFT.
How about race?
Back in my day (I graduated in 2013, so it’s not a stretch) I was in a lot of Honors classes. You know how it was determined who got into these programs? Grades. If you were above a certain GPA, you were allowed to sign up for any AP class you wanted.
Those were the good old days.
Now, schools like John Handley High School in Winchester, Virginia are taking a race-based approach to Honors placement, angering a lot of parents.
The school sent out a letter to parents announcing their new plans to include “proportional representation” in their classes.

“Through our collective work, advanced classes such as AP and Honors will have proportional representation. Proportional representation is 40% White, 35% Hispanic, 12% African American, 10% mixed race.”
Uhm, excuse me? Why are we putting melanin over merit? Are children going to be denied spots that they would have gotten until this policy change and what is that going to do to their transcripts when they apply for colleges? Does this school even care, or are they just more concerned with being politically correct?
Actually, I can answer that one for you. It’s right in the letter, and it’s frightening as hell.
“American demographic trends indicate that America will be a majority minority nation in the next 25 years. Therefore, the new work of American public schools is to develop systems to address disparate outcomes.”
That’s right, the job of schools is no longer to teach your child how to read and write, it’s to “develop systems to address disparate outcomes” among students of different races.
This school is about to get inundated with messages from irate parents and they will absolutely deserve it.
