New York City Progressives Try (And Fail) To Limit Asians At Top Schools.
Both The New York Times and the New York Post ran stories this week about the demographic breakdown of students accepted to New York City’s eight elite public high schools. Though dealing with the same numbers, the news items were starkly different. The Times piece was focused on lack of diversity, noting that only 10 percent of students accepted were Black and Hispanic, even though those groups make up 67 percent of all New York public school students. But, there was one word that, somewhat shockingly did not appear in the article — the word “Asian.”

WARREN: Trudeau has copied Wynne’s tactics before — he may do it again
On the heels of the latest federal budget and on the eve of an Ontario budget, the Kathleen Wynne Liberals are betting that voters care more about investments in health care, infrastructure, senior care and program spending in people than they care about a balanced budget.
Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne swung left of the NDP to win a majority in 2014. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau copied this strategy, ate Thomas Mulcair’s lunch, and won a huge majority in 2015 by winning 80 seats in Ontario.
