Default NYC Mayor De Blasio’s school admissions plan would slash enrollment of white kids

De Blasio’s school admissions plan would slash enrollment of white kids

Mayor de Blasio’s controversial plan to change admissions to the city’s top specialized high schools would slash enrollment of white kids from 24 percent to 15 percent , based on Department of Education projections.

Asian students would also take a big hit. Their enrollment in the eight elite schools would drop by more than half — from the current 62 percent to a projected 30 percent , the DOE says.

The proposal, also pushed by Chancellor Richard Carranza, would phase out the SHSAT admission test used for the top schools, including Stuyvesant, Bronx HS of Science and Brooklyn Tech.

Instead, the city would offer seats to the top 7 percent of students in each of 600 middle schools, based on their classroom grades and scores on 8th-grade state math and English tests.

The plan would boost enrollment of black and Latino kids to 46 percent. Currently, those kids, who make up 67 percent of the city’s population, hold only 10 percent of seats in all eight schools.

At Stuyvesant, the most popular, it’s only 4 percent.

A ninth specialized school, LaGuardia HS — the “Fame!” school of arts and performing arts — would not be affected, because it admits kids by audition, art portfolios, grades and state test scores.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
