All Woke Up: Educational reparations

In Woke Land, the political ends justify the corrupting means. That’s why the Woke can, with a straight face, implement racist policies in the name of ending racism.

Case in point, Lowell High School in San Francisco. Known nationally as a public school devoted to student excellence, Lowell recently dismantled its merit-based admissions system.

As The Federalist reported, Lowell’s enrollment is 50 percent Asian American, 18 percent white, 12 percent Latino and roughly 2 percent black. Activists preaching from the “equity and diversity” gospel insist the numbers add up to exclusion of black students to the benefit of white and Asian kids.

So now, instead of grades and those pesky test scores, Lowell High School is replacing its merit-based admissions system with a random lottery. Students who put in the work and make the grade will have to win the academic version of the Powerball to get into one of the highest-achieving high schools in America.

None of this, of course, fixes the massive failures of San Francisco’s elementary and middle school systems that, despite hefty public funding, continue to leave all kinds of kids behind — particularly black students.

No, the painfully Woke don’t care about equality. What they want is “social justice,” which is a redistribution of everything, including education. That means taking from some groups and giving to others in the same kind of unjust ways that fueled the very necessary fight for equality. They want immediate reparations for past social transgressions. And they’re willing to use race and racism to get it.
