Reply to "Why blkCONS cannot logically justify their stance on issues"

Boston Latin High School is the most prestigious and selective of the public high schools in Boston.

What is the criteria for entrance into this school? Academic credentials, namely grades and scores, correct? The school is very 'selective' means choosing those with highest scores, gpa's, etc.

that 42% drop in Black Enrollment seems to be proof

Proof indeed. It is just as logical to say that this drop in admissions is 'proof' that AA has been ineffective in helping to improve education levels in our community. If after 4 decades of AA, Blacks are still scoring nearer the bottom of the applicants, it would seem logical that AA is not helping to achieve the educational goals it set out to when instituted. We saw some of this in colleges as well.

That is the primary argument I've heard from its opponents, after at least 3 generations now, that it hasn't produced satisfying results, and that we should be more open to finding things that actually may work to increase the scores, academic achievement, and therefore expand the opportunities available to those who succeed academically.
