About 300 students at the prestigious Beacon High School walked out of class on Monday to demonstrate against the school’s admissions standards, according to the New York Times. They believe that rigid screening procedures have contributed to segregation in the school system.
“The abundance of privilege in our school is so universal that it usually goes unquestioned and unnoticed,” said Toby Paperno, a white student at the school.
During the protest, students chanted slogans such as “end Jim Crow” and “education is a right, not just for the rich and white.”
Washington Examiner reports: Beacon has a very selective admissions process that demands high test scores and requires students to compile a portfolio of their middle school work. Last year, the school saw more than 5,800 applications for just 360 seats.
A paid pod cast, bet money they paid the kids to do this BS.
