Parents Fight Back After Woke High School Axe Honor Classes

A school in California has incurred parents’ wrath after the management canceled honors English classes in a bid to promote equality between students of all backgrounds.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Parents kicked against the school district’s position that uniform courses, which ensure students of all races receive an equal, rigorous education, should replace the optional honors classes according to investigations into this development. saying true equality implies providing opportunities to all regardless of their antecedents.

“We really feel equity means offering opportunities to students of diverse backgrounds, not taking away opportunities for advanced education and study,” a concerned parent at Culver City told WSJ.

This move by Culver City High School now means that every student takes the same English class called “college prep.” To further justify their position, the school thinks Advanced Placement classes, which puts students at an advantage during admission processes, do not include enough Black and Latinos.

Culver City’s high school’s position joins a long list of woke policies that are counterproductive and particularly unhealthy for academic environments. Pedro Frigola, a Cuban parent, has lamented the decision, as her daughters have now lost an opportunity to take the Honors English class.

Patrick Henry High School in San Diego also towed the same line as Culver City High School. The school also eliminated the honors classes and this sparked a public backlash. Michelle Irwin, the school’s principal, was forced to suspend the decision last April.

Altering standard academic practices is slowly becoming a pattern in woke school districts in the U.S. Around 17 Northern Virginia schools within Fairfax County, Loudoun County, and Prince William County failed to notify students that they had been awarded National Merit Scholarship.

One of the schools, Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, said it made the decision because it wants to “recognize students for who they are as individuals, not focus on their achievements.”

The move prompted fierce criticism from parents and Virginia Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin.

“We will not allow our students and their parents to be left uninformed of their hard-earned recognition in what we now know was widespread across more than a dozen schools in multiple school divisions,” Youngkin said.

Parents’ rights activist Asra Nomani made this public with her revelation about the National Merit Scholarship commendation. This commendation is used for college applications and to access scholarships.
