Asians’ Success in High School Admissions Tests Seen as Issue by Some -

W.E.B. DuBois (1868-1963) nor Jackie Robinson ask that the bar be lowered, why should today's generation not be expected to stand to the challenge and work just as hard? Let's stop complaining and do what's needed and afterwards if someone stand in our way then we kick he door in not before. If we keep demanding the baseline be lowered there's nothing left worth achieving other than an empty future void of knowledge.
"City education officials, as well as Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, have rejected the idea that the one-test entry system should be rethought. “You pass the test,” the mayor said last month, “you get the highest score, you get into the school — no matter what your ethnicity, no matter what your economic background is.”
The city began offering a free test-prep program several years ago for black and Hispanic students, but after a legal challenge, other ethnic groups were granted the same access to the course. Today, 43 percent of the students in the program are Asian. Three years ago, Ting Shi was one of them."
I'm with the Mayor, The jobless rate for Asians is 5.9 percent (not seasonally adjusted), compared to whites (7.2 percent), blacks (14.1 percent), and Hispanics (10.2 percent) little changed from a year earlier. eNuff Said!
