It had a lot of help.
Gregory Hood spills the beans on the death of the best public high school (still a government prison) in what passes for the United States.
Thus, we arrive at the current controversy about the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST). It’s not being renamed, though we can probably assume that’s next. Instead, the school, ranked by US News as the best high school in the country, has eliminated its admissions test because not enough blacks and Hispanics can pass it. TJ, as it is called, was going to have an admissions “lottery” for students who had a 3.5 GPA or better, but the Fairfax County Schools Board did not approve that part of the plan. Still, that might just be a stay of execution. A proposed “Holistic Review” instead of a lottery might be even worse.
So, for now, no one knows how TJ is going to select its students, but the old days of pure meritocracy are gone.
The days of AMERICA are gone. Read the whole sad but overly-informative piece. Then, flee any and all public “schools” and any private school that preaches DIEversity or other anti-Western hate. TJ wouldn’t recognize the place.
