The Daily Wire has published a very interesting article covering Thursday’s Fairfax County School Board when Asian parents stood up to the board and in a show of true courage the board fled. Everyone should read this article.
Asian parents were objecting to the school board’s appeal of a judge’s ruling that TJ could not use a race-based admission program for Thomas Jefferson high school for Science and Technology. The ruling forced Fairfax County to return to the merit-based program they have always used for admission to the number one school in the nation.
From the Dailywire:
The Thomas Jefferson School For Science and Technology once had the highest math scores in the country, but after the school board determined that that was not â€œequitable,â€ they jettisoned the math test used for admission in favor of a process based on how â€œdisadvantagedâ€ students were. The result was that the famed school had to begin offering remedial math. (Emphasis mine.)
Asra Nomani, the India-born mother of a TJ student who was involved in the successful lawsuit, spoke at Thursdayâ€™s meeting, and told the board â€œFor the last two years you have been trying to make us invisible, but a federal judge has ruled that in fact you are going to go down in history just like I told you you would, just like the school board inÂ Brown vs. Board.â€
â€œYou are the new face of racism,â€ she said. (Emphasis mine.)
Nomani brought with her to the podium a stack of copies ofÂ Race To The Bottom, a new book by Daily Wire investigative reporter Luke Rosiak, which highlights anti-merit, anti-Asian school policies and chronicles the Fairfax school board in particular.
â€œI have here a copy of a book for each one of you,Â Race To The Bottom. And you are all in this book. A book for you Karen Corbett Sanders, a book for you Stella Pekarsky, a book for you Abrar Omeish,â€ she said, as the crowd erupted in cheers. â€œAll of you have failed us. I have all of these books, I hope you read them from cover to cover and see yourself in the pages of history â€” as failures.â€
The citizens of Fairfax county are paying high-priced lawyers at Hunton Andrews Kurth, the successor to Hunton & Williams, the firm that supported segregation in Brown v Board of Education, to fight merit-based admissions to the best high school in the country.
