So, @NYDailyNews takes the brave step of supporting expanding schools that screen out most kids and maintaining admisssion to PUBLIC schools by a single-day high-stakes test, while expanding the two-tiered educational system of talented and gifted programs/schools.
I wish we’d really examine how little we think of our children who come from disadvantage, who may struggle more academically, that we’re constantly manuevering to separate other “worthy” children from them.
By brave I mean not at all. This solve absolutely forces this city to confront NONE of the drivers of segregation, or the morality of providing top tier, exclusive public education to a small number of students. Expanding systems of inequality is not the solve for inequality.
Ask how many of these folks who are lobbying for putting talented and gifted programs back in poor black neighborhoods were out here fighting for this before they felt the SHSAT was threatened.
