The Most Segregated Public Schools In The Country

Post by Anaxagoras » Wed Mar 20, 2019 4:55 am

New York’s Most Elite High School Admits Just Seven Black Students in a Class of 900 :cowbell:

Yes, the new spin is to use the loaded word "segregation."
New data released by New York City on Monday revealed that the city’s most elite public high schools admitted just a tiny number of black and Hispanic students, according the New York Times.

The numbers are stark: New York’s top school, Stuyvesant High School, admitted just seven black students for a freshman class of 895. That is down from 10 last year and 13 the year before.

The Bronx High School of Science had similarly dismal numbers: 12 offers for black students out of a class of 803.

According to the Times, Mayor Bill de Blasio has proposed eliminating the high-stakes entrance exam for admission to the high schools and finding an alternative merit-based method of doing admissions. The proposal has been met with pushback from state legislators and Asian American groups, as a population of mostly low-income Asian students make up the majority of these schools’ student bodies.
So apparently now Asian students, not white students, dominate the student bodies at these schools. It would probably be the same at Universities like Harvard if admissions were race-blind, but they aren't.

Here's where they use the word "segregated":
Black and Hispanic students make up nearly 70 percent of the city’s public school system, which has roughly 600 schools. Only about 10 percent of the students at any of the eight specialized schools were black or Hispanic. That statistic remained virtually unchanged from previous years.

The issue of segregation in the city’s schools extends far beyond its eight most elite: A 2014 UCLA report concluded that New York state had the most segregated schools in the country. A school diversity panel, commissioned by the mayor, concluded this year that the city had done little since then to reflect New York’s larger diversity and that, across the city, schools remained deeply segregated.

So apparently now Asian students, not white students ...
The whites have already fled the system.

Public schools in the big northern cities are all much more "segregated" now than when I was a kid.

In the future, there will be no elite public high schools (with entrance exam that is).

They might ask how it is that the public schools have failed the black population.

Are the schools really the root problem though? I went to public schools and got a fine education. You went to public schools, didn't you? Isn't it things like kids without two parents and maybe one of them is in jail, and then what can the public schools do for kids whose home life is a shambles and have emotional problems and disrupt class so that other students are affected and it just reaches a critical mass so that quality education becomes impossible in such an environment?

I think you are describing inner city schools pretty well. The problem is that when you identify the real problem you are then a racist. Much better to gut the special schools and feel woke.

Whites really do not give a shit about minorities. Liberals that is. They are afraid to identify the proximal causes of problems so they simply pat them on their kinkey heads and make believe that the problems are systemic and virtually unaddressable. Hence the black genocide in Chi.

I recall Whoopie Goldberg bitching about some remark about single parent households not being adequte for kids or something. She said "i am a single mother and let me tell you that I etc etc". If you are a millionaire it is easy.

I went to Brooklyn Tech, one of "those" schools.

Then they'd have to admit they are doing in on purpose.

Yes I really do think that.
