A middle school located deep in a woke Virginia school district issued a recent letter to the parents of students which offered college prep classes while pushing Hispanic and black students to step up but saying nothing of the community’s Asian or white students.
“Do you have an 8th grader who WANTS to go to college?” questioned the letter, which ended up being sent out to parents back on the first of March. “Do they fall into one or more of these categories?” The deadline for these applications is listed as being the 10th of March.
“Black or African American” and “Hispanic students, of one or more race” were listed, along with a number of students who would end up being the first in their family to get the chance to go to college in the U.S., English learners, any students with disabilities, and any student that is economically disadvantaged.
“If you do, PLEASE APPLY for Fairfax County’s Partnership Program,” the letter expressed. “A typical CCP student represents a traditionally underrepresented population in higher education.”
“In the 20th century, Asian Exclusion Act denied Asians equal opportunities,” highlighted Asra Nomani, a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal. “Now @FCPSNews 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 went on to highlight that, “The perks also include monetary rewards: ‘A summer experiential learning opportunity (you actually visit a college and stay on their campus!).’”
“This program excludes children based on race, and it seems to be in direct violation of the school district’s own anti-discrimination policy.” Explained an attorney whose kid attends classes in the school system, Glenn Miller, to Fairfax Times.
Asian kids make up close to 19% of the 181,447 students, as reported by data from the school district that was compiled back in February; the 666,263 white children that are students make up a total of 37% of the total student population.
“No applicant or employee on the basis of, of race, sex, color, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, genetic information, pregnancy status, childbirth or related medical conditions, marital status, veteran status, and disability shall be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under, any education program or activity, as required by law,” stated the anti-discrimination policy from the Fairfax School District.
Back in 2021, officials with the Fairfax County School District sent out a PowerPoint to the teaching staff which explains just how to implement the ideals of Critical Race Theory (CRT) in all aspects of their classroom activities.
