(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – A high school in Virginia has announced it is banning white and Asian students from attending its college preparation courses and is reserving those only for black and Hispanic students.
The administration of Thomas Jefferson High School in Fairfax County, Virginia, already has a history of pushing for “equity,” Newsmax reports.
It has now sent a letter informing parents which races could attend its college prep courses, and white and Asian students are “notably missing” from the list.
According to the letter sent out on February 21, the college prep lessons would be available only to “students who are the first in their family to attend college in the US,” “Black or African American students,” “Hispanic students, of one or more race,” “students with disabilities,” “English learners,” and “economically disadvantaged students.”
Virginia’s Republican Attorney General has already investigated the Fairfax County Public Schools district because Thomas Jefferson High School previously ended merit awards to its students to pursue “equity.”
“Racism race-based government decision making in any form is wrong and unlawful under Virginia’s Human Rights Act,” declared state Attorney General Jason Miyares when he announced the investigation in January.
“Students at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology are amongst the brightest in the nation, yet some have been punished in the name of ‘equity,” he added.
Another Fairfax County school district institution, Cooper Middle School, has also set out to pursue “equity” through administrative limitations on certain racial groups.
The report points out that progressivists claim the reverse discrimination in their equitable initiatives is supposed to help “disadvantaged youth who disproportionately are Black and Hispanic.”
Critics of the far-left, Marxist policies in question say the equity policies don’t work but do inflate outcomes artificially while lowering general education standards.
The Fairfax County Public Schools’ district insists that its website’s reference to the “typical” college partnership program (CPP) student “as Black and Hispanic” was not discriminatory.
Asra Nomani, the author of a new book called “Woke Army,” condemned the letter that Virgibia’s Thomas Jefferson High School sent to the parents.
“[The letter] promotes a college prep program with race-based admissions, excluding Asians + whites. A judge already ruled FCPS violated US Constitution in new anti-Asian admissions,” Nomani declared.
She pointed out that the college preparation program offers substantial benefits to those who participate, such as college experience, academic counseling, and advice on college applications.
In a subsequent letter, Thomas Jefferson High School issued a clarification statement apologizing “for any language pertaining to candidacy.”
Florida’s Republican Governor, Glenn Youngkin, who has been active with measures against “woke” classroom “politicization,” has launched a formal investigation into the high school’s new policy for excluding white and Asian students.
