HATRED OF EXCELLENCE
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio bragged about erasing the unique character of the 8 "special test" schools...packing them with students chosen by government and not by a test. "I want inner city children in those schools. I want the grading system and the teaching downsized so that these new students won't be singled out as under-performers. By taking away the special aspect of those 8 schools...I'll single-handedly destroy the future for many children. It makes my left leg tingle," quipped Blasio as he studied the plan to pack those schools with "under-privileged children",(WSJ A-15;07-03-18).
