Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax, Virginia, is consistently ranked the best public high school in the country. It is free to attend, but students must pass a rigorous exam. In recent years, children of Asian immigrants have made up the majority of the school. In 2020, the school board replaced the rigorous exam with a new admissions process that promoted “equity,” rather than race-blind admissions. The number of black, Hispanic, and white students went up…and Asian numbers went down. The immigrant parents felt betrayed. They came to this country precisely because America forbids discrimination based on race. These parents still believe in an America where everyone is equal before the law, regardless of race or religion.
