San Francisco Board of Education hates Asians

How else do you describe a system that openly discriminates against high achieving Asian students? You want to talk about systemic racism? It exists in education and it’s targeting Asians. Take a look at the happenings around Lowell High School.

Lowell was 82% minority when the school board first attacked its admissions. But because these students were predominantly Asian-American, they don’t count in the progressive diversity calculus. So in October 2020, the board voted to replace Lowell’s competitive admissions with a lottery for the 2021-22 class. Four months later, the board voted to make the change permanent.
