Parents opposed to the mayor’s effort to increase diversity at the city’s specialized high schools offer strong words to educations officials.
Some are outraged at the plan to eliminate the admissions test known as the SHSAT.
City officials want to phase out the exam that’s currently the only criteria used for admission to eight elite specialized schools.
“We go to school based on merit and we think it’s very unfair to be based on quota,” Phil Wong, a parent said.
Other parents who support the effort have different concerns about how the plan will be rolled out.
