Boston Public Schools Suspend Advanced Classes for Fourth Through Sixth Graders Because of “Racial Inequities”

70 percent of the students enrolled in the program were either white or Asian.


Citing the pandemic and “racial inequities,” Boston Public Schools has suspended enrollment in an advanced class program for fourth, fifth, and sixth graders.

The program is called Advanced Work Classes, and superintendent Brenda Cassellius has said it will go on a one-year hiatus.

“There’s been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address,” Cassellius told GBH News. “There’s a lot of work we have to do in the district to be anti-racist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education.”

Students already in Advanced Work Classes will be able to stay enrolled and continue their work, but for at least one year there will be no new fifth- or sixth-grade students admitted to the program. Fourth-grade students will be admitted “by standards to be determined at the school level.”

80 percent of all Boston public school students are either Hispanic or black, but 70 percent of the students enrolled in Advanced Work Classes are either white or Asian.

School Committee member Lorna Rivera was quoted as saying “this is just not acceptable,” adding that she’s “never heard these statistics before” and is “very, very disturbed by them.”

Superintendent Cassellius also claims that interest in Advanced Work Classes has waned over the years and that only five schools in the district had been offering them.

A reminder: Average IQ by family group.

1. East Asian
2. European Caucasian
3. Indigenous American
4. Sub-Saharan African

I'm a part of all 4 family groups. My 9% East Asian comes from the Cherokee, who were believed to have walked across the Bering Strait to North America 13,000 years ago.

I once watched a white guy come under attack from liberals after stating cold hard fact. The white guy declared Equatorial Guinea the lowest average IQ in the world. The Left screamed "racist."

There are notable exceptions. Thomas Sowell, Condaleezza Rica and Ben Carson are in the genius range. Hillary Clinton is woefully short.

Baseless racist charges is M. O. for the left.

Grades are on the kids and parents. Literally there isn’t a possibility to be racist. If a kid gets good grades your in.......

Thanks guys, we'll holler if we need any more help. If you could just point us to any more confederate statues thats a huge help.

If it's not asking too much, could you just write down all of your racial opinions and publish them in like, October '24?

The late great Walter Williams was a long time advocate for private education and the ultimate dissolution of public education. I wish he was still alive. I would love to hear his take. I’ll speak for myself by saying this is a perfect example of why there should be no public schools, no government indoctrination centers. If there were only private schools parents who wanted their children to experience what this school board wants to impose could set up schools based on that model and send their kids there. While parents who find that attitude thoroughly disgusting would send their kids to schools of their inclination. And as Dr. Williams constantly pointed out the different sets of parents could still be friends because they would not be battling over which side wins the one-size-fits-all battle royale.

Obviously this wouldn’t affect your kids if you lived in Boston.

Why? The left will just make it up and do it for us.
