REPORT: Protesters gather to oppose NY mayor’s diversity plan
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NYPost.com:
About 1,000 protesters gathered outside City Hall on Sunday to oppose Mayor de Blasio’s plan to diversify the city’s elite high schools by scrapping the admission test.
The predominantly Asian crowd held professionally printed signs with sayings that included “THE TEST IS NOT THE PROBLEM”and “SUPPORT DIVERSITY, FAIRNESS AND MERIT.”
The article goes on to state the following:
De Blasio wants to phase out the state-mandated test over three years and instead fill the schools with the top 7 percent of seventh-graders from each of the city’s middle schools.
The proposal requires a change in state law, and the Assembly’s Education Committee last week narrowly passed enabling legislation.
