Not to be a heretic, but it's just possible that what constitutes a "better" school, much less the "best" school, might depend a little bit on who the individual student is.

My girlfriend also chose Tech over Science, both of which she got into, due to the commute from deep Brooklyn.I just leaned over and asked the guy next to me where he went: "Bk Tech, I got into Bronx Sci, but wasn't smart enough for Stuyv." That said, my Company probably has an equal amount of Tech, Stuyv alumns.
There was a lot of talk about this in Tech Facebook page and some suggest rather than taking the test away focus should be put on the improving grade schools.What can be done? Forcing arbitrary percentages of ethnic groups I don't believe is the answer for many reasons, but I am curious how many black and Latinos took the test out of who got accepted. Of course some of these students don't have the resources to get help to study for the test like others, but I feel the larger issue is the greater world of education, arbitrarily placing students based on race is a band-aid on the problem and only creates further problems. I'm no expert though.
Wut? You sound like me here!Not having the resources to study for the test is not a real thing: many of the Asian students who are selected are quite poor and English is a second language. In addition study materials, courses and videos are free. And those Asian students are outperforming white students as well and no one is arguing that white students are resource poor, though many may be.
