Stuyvesant High School, New York City’s most prestigious secondary school, only admitted seven black students for the upcoming fall term. Asian students make up 73 percent of the student body.
According to a report from the New York Times, Stuyvesant High School only offered admission to seven blacks students this year for their incoming 900-seat freshman class. This news has sparked debate across the political spectrum, with figures like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chiming in.
Maggie Haberman of the New York Times argued that white students dominate secondary schools like Stuyvesant because they can afford to prepare for its entrance exam. However, this isn’t exactly true. NBC News reported in 2018 that Asian-Americans make up 73 percent of the student body at Stuyvesant. Additionally, all of the New York City schools that accept students based on the SHSAT exam are “majority minority.”
