I'm a HCHS parent and have been receiving an onslaught of emails from various diversity groups mostly made up of students and teachers, as far as I can tell - and a handful of parents - pressuring the admin to get rid of the HCHS admissions test. I understand there are similar things happening and Stuy as well.
Thoughts? I would love to support greater diversity within the school, but just getting rid of the test seems like a terrible idea. As far as I can tell they are proposing a lottery entrance. Are these people really so naive to think that HCHS would be the same kind of school with lottery admissions? It kind of boggles my mind.
