Thought for the day

"Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other." -- Oscar Ameringer, "The Mark Twain of American Socialism"

Adsupply

San Francisco's last good public high school voted to end their merit-based admission system in 2021 as part of the Great Awokening.

Lowell High School, which was previously overwhelmingly Asian and White, elected to switch to a lottery-based admissions system and became around 45% Hispanic and Black. The previously top-performing school saw grades swiftly collapse with 25% of freshmen students receiving either a D or an F in the fall 2021 semester, Legal Insurrection reported.

"This ultimately led to the ouster of three school board members," Legal Insurrection said. "The Asian community played a major role in the campaign."

San Francisco Unified School District's board of education last week voted to return the school to their previous merit-based system.
