First Gifted and Talented, now Science Labs.


The Berkeley, California High School is proposing a plan to dismantle science labs and fire five science teachers. The reason is that so the money could be spent on new classes geared towards Negro and Mestizo students.

The proposal to put the science-lab cuts on the table was approved recently by Berkeley High’s School Governance Council, a body of teachers, parents, and students who oversee a plan to change the structure of the high school to address Berkeley’s dismal racial achievement gap, where white students are doing far better than the state average while black and Latino students are doing worse.
