Black alumni group pushing NYC city officials to better prepare minority students for top high schools: But minority group not supposed to be better prepared

What this group doesn’t realize it that it is not in the best interests of the Democrat Party to have better educated Black and Latino students. They need a permanent underclass to maintain power. Let’s wake up here!

NY DailyNews[1] reports an influential black alumni group has called on city officials to schools[2]better prepare minority students for the top public high schools, where few students are minorities.

The Stuyvesant High School Black Alumni Diversity Initiative addressed the issue in a Sept. 22 letter to Mayor de Blasio and city schools boss Carmen Fariña.

The letter, signed by a group that includes prominent lawyers and executives, slammed the city for failing to help minority kids gain entrance to the city’s high schools.

“It is outrageous that most specialized high school students come from just a handful of middle schools,” said the scathing missive, which was obtained by the Daily News.

“As long as schools are unequal, a single test will yield unequal results,” the letter said.

The letter also called on education officials to alter the Specialized High Schools

Admissions Test, which is used as the sole criteria for admission to the city’s specialized high schools, including Stuyvesant.

Prediction-School officials will attempt to dumb down the entrance requirements to the elite schools to help achieve diversity. This of course cheapens the value of an elite school and renders then no longer elite. But, Dems don’t give a crap about that because it’s better to be fair, inclusive, and inferior than elite and exclusive.
