For decades, millions of newly-immigrated Chinese, Indian, Korean, Loatian, and Vietnamese children– despite wearing raggedy clothes, living in the worst part of town, barely speaking English, and being the victims of daily racism, bullying, and domestic abuse– have excelled in American schools.
So much so that California has been forced to institute reverse affirmative action policies to artificially lower the number of Asian students in its UC system…
A new admissions policy set to take effect at the University of California system in three years is raising fears among Asian-Americans that it will reduce their numbers on campus, where they account for a remarkable 40 percent of all undergraduates.

A lawsuit pending against Princeton alleges discrimination on grounds that applicants from other ethnic or racial groups were admitted with lesser credentials. The Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights also received complaints last year against Princeton and, since withdrawn, Harvard.

Obama’s universal preschool proposal does nothing to solve America’s so-called education crisis. But it does engender support from low-information voters, particularly bored housewives (which, more than likely, is the actual goal).
The lack of a coherent response from mainstream conservatism is a symbol of its acquiescence to liberal ideology…

- Bobby Jindal: :crickets:
- Jeb Bush: loves it
- Chris Christie: loves it
And no, this doesn’t count.
