Race to the Bottom: High School Withholds Academic Awards for the Sake of ‘Equity’


It’s almost funny how when it comes to the American education system, leftist indoctrination and pandering has paved the way for “equity” to be a good trait or quality.

We all know that simply isn’t the case.

In fact, a recent story from Virginia has actually highlighted just how perilously accurate the following meme is:

The Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia, has come under intense scrutiny and fire after it was revealed that the school had intentionally delayed notifying students of national academic honors in the name of “equity.”

“And this amazing mom named Shawna Yashar started asking questions, just like every parent’s got to do,” Nomani said. “From issues of the drag queen story hours to indoctrination in the schools, this is another form of this race to the bottom that the schools are going through right now.”

Nomani distilled the nonsense from Thomas Jefferson High rather succinctly:
