Schools Chancellor Richard "Ay!" Carranza vowed Wednesday to remake admissions to the city’s specialized high schools to enroll more black and Latino students — and got hearty cheers from nearly every member of the City Council’s education committee. :mad:

Carranza also again skewered parents who questioned the impact on academic quality of City Hall’s proposal to diversify the largely Asian and white schools as “racist.”

“I will call it out as racist every time,” he said. “If you don’t want me to call you on it, don’t say it.” :mad:

Some 100 parents protested outside but most education committee members agreed with chairman Mark Treyger. “To those who say integration will hurt the quality of schools — I dismiss that argument,” Treyger said.
