Virginia High School: AP Class Enrollments Will Be Determined by Race and Not Merit

John Handley High School in Winchester, Virginia sent out a letter to parents detailing plans to select students for AP and honors classes based on skin color.

Fox News obtained a copy of the letter sent out by the school:

“Through our collective work, advanced classes such as AP and Honors will have proportional representation,” read the letter. “Proportional representation is 40% White, 35% Hispanic, 12% African American, 10% mixed race.”

Contrary to their letter, a school district spokesperson denied all racial quota allegations for taking AP or honors level classes, but that clearly contradicts what the letter says. The school board chairman Erica Truban defended the letter.

“I disagree that those statements mean that students will be placed in classes based on race”

Truban must have forgotten the part in the letter that directly outlined “proportional representation.” No matter how you try to hide it, applying racial requirements on classes absolutely means that students will be placed in classes based entirely on their race.  There is nothing academic about requiring students to fit a racial category for taking an advanced class.

Eric Sitton, a father of a sophomore honors student at the high school agrees as well

“I felt powerless to help my child,” he said. “Seeing the look on his face when he realized that he was being judged by the color of his skin was agonizing.”

John Handley High School isn’t the only academic institution to make remarks like this and certainly won’t be the last. Academic institutions help build the very fabric of our children’s intelligence and incidents like this should inspire more individuals on the right to get into education. The left has an abhorrent obsession with “diversity” especially when they can institutionally restrict others success. Its time more right wing educators replaced these feminist, communist and socialists who do everything in their power to poison the minds of our children.
