Save the Test - Save Our Schools

Promote Diversity, Fairness and Merit

The City Council is going to vote on a resolution (Resolution 442) calling on the State Legislature and Governor to scrap the Specialized High School Admissions Test and substitute subjective criteria for gaining admission to Brooklyn Tech and the other specialized high schools.  Using a test guarantees an admissions system free of favoritism and bias; the test objectively demonstrates capacity to do the advanced college level course work required of all students in these schools.

We also believe that greater racial and ethnic diversity can be achieved at the specialized high schools if the City’s Department of Education improves the quality of the education provided students in the Latino and African American communities, revives the Discovery Program for admitting disadvantaged youth as well as provides free test preparation for all who want it.
Tell your New York City Council Member to Vote NO on Resolution 442. Save the Test. Save our schools. Promote diversity, fairness and merit! Do it today.
